    this is a really cute idea! all for all you haters out there, you probably dont have children,because my little girl loved making this! paper or not!

    i think this is a really good idea although i think you should maybe instead of laminating it like one quest suggested just using clear boxing tape it should be wide enough and it doesn’t cost as much as laminating and you get the same affect. also maybe instead of using Velcro for the fastener why not snaps. with the tape (2 or 3 layers) and small snaps it shouldn’t rip. great idea btw

  5. also why couldnt you laminate it it would also be cool to let a small child design it ,with their art work.

  6. I like this idea alot because it’s environmentally friendly. It’s creative and has endless options for materials and patterns. Yes, paper does rip easily, but the point of this craft likely isn’t to wear paper jewelery and accessories.. To me, the point is to spend time with my kids, and seeing them enjoy doing something creative and their own. That memory is far more valuable than any jewelery.. paper or not.

  7. I don’t like this one. it doesn’t look like a bracelet

  8. “incredimean” and “imma” Instead of crafts, take some English classes, maybe etiquette too.

  9. its crazy how some people are like incredimean lol its just a craft chill dont like it dont comment. imma fan.

  10. actually instead of paper we can use another thing i`ve tons of ideas!!!

  11. VERY BAD IDEA EASY TO RIP. DON’T REALLY LIKE IT UNLESS YOU WAS MAKING IT FOR KIDS. STILL WHY WOULD YOU WANT YOUR KIDS TO WEAR PAPER ITEMS. LOL

  12. Instead of using your printer try finding colorful magazine pictures, cut to size & complete as directed. Very Pretty!

  13. ewwww… i hate this idea. I only hate it because it is made out of paper and i mean who wants to wear paper? not any one i no. sry i hate it. Thanks 4 trying though.

  14. Cool& simple!

  15. That’s really cool, I like it! =]
