Origami Bracelet – Justin Bieber Bracelet

This is a gift I created for… yes, a Justin Bieber fan (go ahead and squeal!.) Anyway, this is a sample of another customized bracelet. I once again used the 3/8 inch strips so that the pictures come out clear and crisp. One side has all the pictures while the other side has hearts. This is also not for sale – you really couldn’t and shouldn’t sell hand made things with pictures of celebrities or famous (infamous) people. It’s illegal and just not right. Anyway, I just wanted to share how the bracelet turned out to give people an idea of what a customized bracelet with pictures could look since my sample of the “family bracelet” had pictures of another kind of family – the animal family.

 Here is the image of the “Justin Bieber” (squeal) bracelet.


The recipient of this gift will be quite thankful.

Origami Bracelets – Family Bracelet for Mom

Someone asked me to make a customized bracelet for Mom’s Day. It’s a “family” bracelet because she wanted the pictures of the grandkids on one side and then hearts with a message on the other side. I used the 3/8 inch paper strips so that the pictures could come out clear. Since I can’t post the picture of the bracelet here (privacy!) – I made a sample bracelet of what it would look like. This is a different kind of family though – but these are pictures of babies.

 This bracelet is a sample, and so is not available at my Etsy store.

 Here is the image of the “Family Bracelet”


Origami Bracelets – Inspired by Twilight

Someone requested a bracelet with a design inspired from the movie, Twilight. So, I had to figure out what kinds of designs I can use. So, I came up with a few designs (yep, can’t settle for only one). Of course, after I showed her the designs, a friend of her had to ask for one that includes a wolf – hmmmm….

 So, here are the new origami bracelets inspired by Twilight


This design can be on one side or on both sides of the bracelet. Here are the other designs that can be mixed and matched – that means, each side of the bracelet can have a different design.

The quote says: The lion (pic of lion) fell in love with the lamb (pic of lamb)

Here are the images of the other designs:

I tried a bigger sized strip – the 1/2 inch was just too big I thought – the 3/8 inch was just right – looks like a cuff. 

 Of course, here’s the one with the wolf:

These come either with a fastener (Velcro-like, but not Velcro), or without a fastener. My other blogs show how to attach the bracelets.


* Choices on design (you can have the design on both sides or a different one for each side

* You can customize the bracelet with your own message/name

* Paper made from “rescued” book cover paper (book jacket paper) – stronger than regular paper

* Treated to make the bracelet water resistant (it is NOT water-proof) and will not fade

* Comes with 10 extra strips (to expand the bracelet later on)

* Comes in a special cardstock container

* Includes instructions on how to attach the bracelet and how to add (or remove) pieces
