Last year I made these Coca-Cola Can bracelets. Every month it is still my most popular post. I hadn’t made any in quite awhile but a friend was disappointed that she never got one, so I had to pull my stuff out again to make some. This time I was a little bit more creative and we decided to bling them out a little bit more.
Go check out the first tutorial before you try to follow this tutorial, it will make everything easier!
Make the shape of the bracelet a little different, in the past I made them mostly square but the edges would catch on stuff and they would poke you or could rip.
You can choose to turn the edges back or forth. You will get a silver lining if they are turned out, but if they are turned under they will be less noticeable. It’s all about what you think looks best. I sometimes like the silver lining and sometimes want a cleaner edge. If you turn the edges under they shouldn’t scrape you as long as they are pressed very flat.
Instead of big holes for the ribbon, make very small holes with a pin and add jump rings. We also added metal clasps instead of ribbon for some of them. Or you can skip the holes all together if you roll the edges, and thread a small ribbon or elastic through.
Add more decoration to them by adding flowers or bows with hot glue.
Add fabric lining to give the bracelet a little more structure as well as comfort. I used t-shirt scraps because they don’t fray and just hot glued them in.
