Origami Bracelet – How to Add (or Remove) Pieces

on March 26, 2012

So, you have your origami bracelet but for some reason you want to remove some pieces, or add pieces (especially if you’re a kid and the bracelet does not fit anymore). Here are the steps on how to add (or remove) pieces from your origami bracelet.

1) Look at the edge. This is the part you will work with.

2) Remove any piece between the two arrows. (The reason for this is that the ends of the bracelet have been especially treated and glued together.

3) Use a toothpick and gently push out one of the pieces. The paper (book cover paper) is strong but you still have to be gentle with it. If the piece tears, just replace it with the extra ones. I include extra pieces with any bracelet that I sell.

4) The first one is out.

 

5) Do the same thing with the other side.

 

6) Now you have two pieces of the bracelet. Add (or remove) the number of pieces you need. It must be an even number. When you add a pair, you add 1/4 inch to the length of the bracelet.

7) The “connector” piece must be added like this. Put both sides through.

8) Fold the piece, and then put it through the slot (second arrow).

9) The first part is inside. Make sure it goes in the slot. Now, do the same with the other part.

10) Push the last part in gently until it goes through the slot.

 

 

11) The bracelet is connected and the arrow is pointing at the “connector” piece.

There you have it!
