Grungeboard is a unique material with a variety of uses. Today we are going to make a a bracelet. Yes, I said a bracelet. At first glance (and touch) you wouldn't think that a person could make a bracelet with grungeboard, but we can. To follow along, gather these supplies:
- Grungeboard (a Tim Holtz product, buy it at your local craft/scrapbook store)
- Gesso (buy this at your local art supply store, or try Daniel Smith)
- StazOn ink pads
- Hole punches (two sizes to match the sizes of the hitch fasteners)
- Hitch fasteners (another Tim Holtz product, buy them at your local craft/scrapbook store)
- Sanding block
- Self-healing cutting mat
- X-acto knife
- Paint brush
The basic idea of making the bracelet is to cut the grungeboard to the size you want the bracelet, decorate it with paint and ink, and then use the fastener to hold it together. It's very easy and super fun to make. Once you make one I can guarantee that you will want to make another one.
