Candy Wrapper Bracelet by Erin Bassett

Hi everyone...it's Erin Bassett in today to show you how I created this fun bracelet out of candy wrappers.
Things you'll need for this project:
Start off by smoothing out the wrappers and one at a time, punch them with the paper punch.

After all the wrappers are punched create buttons with them using the itop. Check out this video on how to use your itop to make buttons if you're unfamiliar with it.
Once your buttons are made insert about a 2 inch piece of wire through the button hole. Twist the wire ends together and then thread them through one of the links on your bracelet chain and then wrap it around the link so that it is secure. Repeat with the remaining itop buttons. I also added some colorful buttons to fill out the bracelet.

I wanted to add a touch of softness to my bracelet so I used a scrap of ribbon to tie it closed.
