This is the front view of the bracelets. After I finished making the bracelets, I still thought they were a little plain. I went through a box of my fabric and found this awesome piece of blue jean material. I tore strips and tied them around on one end of the clasp.
This is the backside. It looks really busy here but they really are much prettier with the fabric strips tied on.
Now you can see each bracelet here. The theme used by the Global Genes Project is jeans. So I needed to make sure that not only the blue was used in the bracelets but a hint of jean material...
I made some cards to go along with the bracelets. I used one of the support badges and I found this beautiful saying and added it to the card.
"Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all."
I attached the cards with the same strips of jean material onto the bracelets and packed them into a box and off the went today.
