I like it, bright and contemporary. But don't the edges scratch?

That's cool. Is it as simple as it might look?

Yes, the edges scratch a little, so you have to be careful when you wear it, and think about what location you are wearing it to. I mean, it's for example not good to wear it when you are visiting someone with a curious child...

Yes, it is very simple, it looks like something you have cutted out of paper Smiley

It shouldn't scratch too badly. At least not if you cut a back piece and a slightly larger front piece, and then fold over the edges. Is that what you did?

It's a little difficult for me to explain in English how I do by folding, so I have made this tutorial.
I hope it can explain how I make it.. What I meant by the edges, I mean "the sharp parts" i have marked with red - What do you call them in English?


Here is how I do...









Then I use hammer and a seam to make the holes..
