Inspired by this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=378142.0

I didn't have enough chain around to make a necklace, so I whipped up a bracelet instead:

(terrible picture - typical Ohio rainy day)

I think the bracelet needs more ... umph ... or something, but I'll add to it later. Maybe some charms or something ...

Anyway, when I fused the bubble wrap, I thought, "There's no way this is going to look like the pictures in the tute. This is going to suck." But once I started punching out the circles, I'm really pleased with how nice they look!

Thanks for looking!

If you're going for more oomph, maybe use brightly colored crystals instead of the light ones?  I'd be concerned that if you add too much more to it, it might feel cluttered and take away from the texture of the bubble wrap.

That said, it's lovely, and it makes want to try this technique even more.  Someone needs to send me something packed in bubble wrap!   Wink

Thanks! I think you're right with brighter colored crystals ... hmm, that means a trip to Hobby Lobby! Smiley
