Comic Strip Bracelet

This is an awesome kids craft or a craft you could make for a child!

What you will need: 

-sunday newspaper comics section
-about 10 small beads, various colors (small bracelet)
-stretchy jewelery cord
-Mod Podge
- Scissors

1. First you will need to cut about 10 strips of newspaper from the comic section. They should be about 4"x1/2". A little hint: if you look for an image that you would like to have on your bead, (ex. Garfield's face or letters from a comic title) cut that image out at the very end of your strip of paper. This way, it will be on the outside of you bead.

2. Start rolling up your strips of paper with the image you want to show on the outside. Glue the last inch down and then Mod Podge the whole bead.

3. Wait about 20 minutes for your beads to dry and then string them on your cord alternating them with colorful beads! Tie it off with a lobster clasp or other jewelery fastener.

  11. I do not drop a lot of comments, however i did some searching and wound up
    here "Comic Strip Bracelet". And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it look like a few of the comments come across like they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you have to
    post. Would you make a list of every one of all your public pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
