So I had this leftover plastic from when I purchased some barrettes.  The shapes punched into the plastic were pretty cool so I cut them out.  I painted the plastic which took two coats.  Next, I wrapped the brown string around the plastic in a pleasing pattern.  I liked how it turned out so tribal.  I glued a piece of string to the back of one end of the plastic and wrapped more string around it to reinforce it.  Lastly, I sewed a button on the other end so I could fasten the bracelet by wrapping the string around it.   Pretty snazzy!

It is a cute pattern in the plastic, and makes an interesting bracelet.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

What a clever reuse!! You're a visionary for seeing the potential in that plastic that most would consider garbage.

Well thank you!  To be honest, the plastic was pretty awesome.  I'm still working on some other items from the same plastic so I hope the rest of my items live up to your praise!

Very interesting idea.  It creates such a great shape for the bracelet.  I'm going to have to remember this with my various scraps!
