Pretty self-explanatory, I should say.

As for the second bracelet: it's obviously not an original idea (I got the idea from another forum) but all of the pop tab bracelets I'd seen on here were made by weaving a string of some sort in and out of the holes, so I thought this would be "different".

I wish I had an exuse for the picture quality (webcam? cellphone cam? but I took the pictures with a regular digital camera... blame my lack of expertise)

Thank you both.

I will try to post a picture tutorial as soon as possible.
I'll try to explain it in words first though; it's very easy.

You connect the ends of each of the straws together by stuffing one end into the hole of the other end. (in my bracelet it was the two red ones) Basically, you're making two "mini" straw bracelets (red).

Then you line up the two mini red straw bracelets and flatten the top part (where the blue straw will weave through) with your nails. After flattening the blue straw all along its length (You have to do this very well, or nothing will work. Crease the plastic against a hard surface with your nails. Over and over.) Then weave the blue straw through the two red straws, using it to connect the two red straws together.

Ugh, I hope I didn't confuse you more. If I only had the straws I could put together a tutorial right now, because the bracelet is so simple to make, but I'm stuck at home, unfortunately. Sorry.
