Unbelievable Water Bottle Bracelet

This is such a clever idea, a bracelet made from a water bottle. Some people amaze me with their talent.  How in the world do you get a bracelet idea from a water bottle.  I'm thinking this girl must be from the south were we have to find our own entertainment.  When you live in a small town like I do, the imagination goes wild with things to do because there IS nothing to do.   We don't even have a Wal Mart in the town I live in, but thank goodness they are building one.  Visit her site at accidentally wonderful and she will show you how to make this bracelet and she also makes one with yarn.  I'm loving this!!

Love this idea.  I have re purposed a lot of notebooks with custom covers, but this made me think in a different direction...this way, you save your ink and you have a very colorful notebook...Oh my Gosh, I can hardly type looking around the room to see what I can find to cover a notebook..  

                  To make the notebook

  • Put Cover on top of sheets and wind wire back in
