Stuff you'll need:
Copied and reduced book covers
Cereal box cardboard
Cut a long strip of leather that is 1 1/4" wide and 1" longer than your wrist measurement
Mark 1" at the end of the strip
Cut at least 500 mini book pages that are 1 1/4" x 2"
*You will be folding the 2" pages in half creating a 1 1/4" x 1" book
Fold 10 pages at a time to get the crease
Line them up one by one and hold them together with a clothespin
*You'll need as many of these as it takes to circle your wrist
Add E-6000 glue to the folds and glue them on the rough side of the leather
Keep pages upright with a wood block on each side so the dry properly
Keep glueing book pages along the entire strip except for the 1" at the end
Cut a 1" x 1 1/4" piece of cardboard
Glue your book cover to it to create a mini hardcover for the bracelet
Glue the covers to each end with more E-6000
Add Velcro on the 1" overlap to close the bracelet once it's filled with book pages.
