Hello Kitty Slap Bracelets
Do you remember back in the 90's the rage was slap bracelets?? I remember they were everywhere and they were even contraband from some schools, because people were slapping them too hard and it was becoming a hazard as well as a major distraction. They are basically made with a metal that bends and covered with a sleeve. It's either material or plastic. Well a couple years back, while walking around the craft store, I found these corsage bracelets that are basically the same concept. They are made for wrist corsages, they are a little better made and thicker. They come with a plastic piece to add things on top of. I ended up buying a pack of 6, and really wanted to do something with them. I took it home and instantly thought of making hello kitty bracelets. I made the hello kitty head out of stiffened felt and layered it. Then simply glued the head to the plastic piece that comes with the bracelet. I also added some ribbon to the band part to make it look a little more exciting. That was it, I had a fun hello kitty bracelet instantly! It ended up being a huge hit, especially with the little girls. I am thinking about doing it again, but trying to add a little more to it.
