Do you save those great new powdered drink containers? You know, the kind Crystal Light and other brands come in, with the flattened oval shape?
Try a super simple, eco-conscientious cuff bracelet, made by cutting slices from that uniquely-contoured box.
Here comes the easy, fun, kid-friendly DIY...
Start by cutting a slice from the container. If you like, add wavy edges.
Use anything sharp to poke two holes - the plastic is very soft and easy to puncture. Try a pushpin, skewer or pointy scissors.
Use string to thread on a faux flower and a button, then tie a bow in the center. Like so:
You can get three to five bracelets from one container, depending on the width. Now that's a thrifty craft! This would be so much fun for a tween crafting party or sleepover. And for grownup ladies, how about whole bunch of practically free flower corsages, for an eco-friendly bridal shower or summer event?
Hope you enjoyed...see you back here again soon.
