Out of Print Bracelet | Erikia Ghumm
I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to gasping outloud when photos of this project landed in my inbox last week. BasicGrey as wearable art? Yes, please! BasicGrey design team member Erikia Ghumm knocked this project out of the park. You’re sure to get numerous compliments anytime you step out wearing this project.
Even better? You can create this project in just five easy steps.
Cut several ½” by 12” strips from papers.
Curl paper strips with edge of scissors (just like curling ribbon when gift wrapping). Starting at one end of the strip, wrap the edge tightly around a wood skewer. It helps to roll the very edge of the paper back and forth over the skewer while holding it in your fingers to get it started.
Apply a small amount of liquid glue to the strip as it’s being rolled paying extra attention to the end
Coat the finished beads with clear spray paint or brush on dimensional adhesive.
String beads onto elastic cord and secure with several knots. Trim off excess cord and hide the knot inside one of the paper beads.
Wouldn’t this make a perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer? Now, I wonder what it would take for me to get Erikia to send me that bracelet…
