Last time we made a Magnet poem. Today we are going to make a word covered bangle.
small paint brush
- Decide on the paper you want to use and cut out long strips. Ensure that the piece you cut out reach all around the bangle and that they overlap/.
- Decide on the width you are going to go with. (See below for different styles).
- Ensure your bangle is clean, and to ensure the paper stick I would advice to use a small piece of sanding paper to rough it up.
- Use the brush to paint the glue onto one piece of paper and glue on, one at a time, with the edges overlapping.
- Ensure there are no air bubbles, leave to dry for at least 2 hours.
- Paint with varnish to ensure the ink wont run and elongating the life span of your fab new, personalised bangle!
I will upload pictures of my finished bangle later, just waiting for them to dry.

Description: before the advent of dust-jackets many books, especially those for children, were bound in brightly coloured cloth with pictorial blockings in gold and colours. The Book of Sports and Pastimes, Things Worth Making and The Outdoor Handy Book are just a few of the unusual 19th and 20th century book covers featured on this writing set.
