the DIY: LABEL BRACELETS

We looooove our label maker. We label EVERYTHING. Casey even labeled her cell phone. We really love the look of the punched lettering. So why wouldn't we make a bracelet with our label maker? That's right, there's no good reason why we shouldn't. Here's what you need- A label, a thick piece of cardstock or in our case, a business card. scissors, a hammer and a nail, 4 jump rings, a lobster claw closure and a piece of chain. Here's what you do...

Make your label.

Peel the back off and stick the label on your cardstock.

Cut the label out of the cardstock, making the label much thicker.

Put one hole on either side of the word using the hammer and nail.

Attach one end of the chain to one of the holes using a jump ring.

Repeat on the other side. The chain should be as long as you need to fit around your wrist comfortably.

Cut the middle of the chain to add a closure.

Add a lobster claw to one side using a jump ring.

Add a jump ring by itself to the other side.

Nice! Play around with the numbers and symbols on your label maker to change it up. We used a "$" in place of an "S" on the first bracelet.

    1. We got it at Walmart. They are called embossing label makers.
