STEP ONE: Measure with a ruler or tape measure the circumference of your wrist, as well as the thickest part around your hand. This is to make sure that the bangle will fit. I find that 8.3” is the average circumference for these bracelets.

STEP TWO: Use double-sided tape or glue to attach the film strips together to make the bangle’s basic shape. Try to use reliable and steady materials to do this because the film is already fragile to begin with. STEP THREE: Line up the holes on the edges of the film so that you can string through them easily. STEP FOUR: Now the fun part! Measure at least 2030” of cording (depending on what kind of wrapping you want to do) for the bangle, and create your own designs and patterns as you string in, out, and around the holes around the film strips. Use different colors and lengths to make the bracelet as unique as you can. Tip: Bright colors work best because the film strips tend to be dark.

STEP FIVE: Tie or hot glue the strings at the end to finish the bracelet’s cording. STEP SIX: Take your memories with you in a fashionable way and enjoy your very own DIY Film Strip Bangle! 57
