flower and leaves cardboard bracelet

it happen today when i was trying to make a cardboard photo frame. my daughters started playing with the scrap of the cardboard and Achu just wrapped one long strip around her wrist and said, ‘mummy, choodi pahanta hun.’ (mummy, i am wearing bracelet). but the cardboard didn’t took the round shape and it fell down. i asked her that i’ll make one for her and thought to glue the two ends, but it has to take time and so i just stapled the two ends with a cardboard flower to make the bracelet.

the first one

it was so simple and she was happy to have it, so i made one with flower and leaves later. here is how i made that;

i cut the cardboard piece in a flower shape and color it with red.

then i took a cardboard strip and draw leaves like above in green.

next i trim out the strip to get a better feel of leaves.

then i stapled the flower at one end of the strip.

took measures of the wrist and hand and according to that stapled the other end.

it is ready to wear.

Aku is happily wearing it and showing to me.
