Layered Button Bracelet

This would make a great teen craft, (or an adult one if you're like me:).


What you will need: 
-assortment of buttons (I used 24), same size    $1.50 for like a billion/walmart
-Industrial strength thread, or some sort of jewelery string

 1. Cut 2 strings to about 15 inches and thread through a button like so...
  
 2. Each additional button should face the opposite direction as the previous button.
  
 3. Push the buttons together as you go.
  
 4. Your bracelet should look layered like this.
  
 5. When you finish, create a loop at one end to hook over the last button on the other end. (Or you could use any sort of jewelery latch to finish it off).
  
6. VOILA! It's kinda fun...I think I like it  :)

  18. Take your beading wire and gently fold it in half. Don't squeeze the fold though....you don't want to stress the wire. Slide your toggle end over one of the cut ends of the wire and slide it down to the mid way mark where your fold in the wire will be. Take the two cut end of the wire and feed them both through a small coordinating bead (I used a 2 mm silver bead in my example.Next slide on two crimper beads over the two wires as with the previous bead. Leave enough wire running through the toggle end to have a relaxed loop (don't make the wire loop that holds the toggle too small....the toggle should be able to flop about a bit) . Crimp your crimpers.Now feed through your focal bead also running the two wires through the bead. Follow the bead up with two more crimper beads (also run both wires through) and crimp them.
