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.

Origami Bracelet – Special Container

Here’s the special container for the origami bracelet. It has two pockets, one for the bracelet, and another pocket for the extra pieces you might need for the bracelet (to make it longer or just in case a piece or two might need to be replaced). It is made of cardstock. It keeps the bracelet and the pieces together and makes it easy to mail the bracelet.

Origami Bracelets Using Book Cover Paper – Success!!!

I just love it when a plan comes together! Yes – it works. I received the art spray and began the next phase of my “experiment” – to see if it will work on the book cover paper that I am using for the new origami bracelets. I printed the design using regular ink cartridges (not the photo ink cartridge that I ordered) and treated the paper. After spraying it three times (just to be sure) I checked to see if the water will damage the design or the paper. What’s really cool is that the paper looks exactly like it should after being sprayed. The colors remained the same and it seemed like it was not sprayed with anything. Now, for the test – I dropped water on the paper, and yes, it did not go through – the water beaded – and after wiping off the water, the design and the paper remained the exact same way it was!

 Here is the image of two new designs using the “book cover” paper for the origami bracelets. I plan on using this paper for my other bracelet designs. The only difference is that this paper has a white background so I might have to change the background color for the other designs or just print it with a white background. More experiments to follow…
