If you are like me, you'll never look at measuring tapes the same way again :). I'm playing with some tapes and quickly recalled a unique and FUN jewelry gift set by Lalo Ik @ crafting in LALA-land. I totally forgotten about it until now. Measuring tapes are flat enough like ribbons so I thought I should try make some jewelry, inspired by her gift set.
Here's my version;
A pair of earrings and a simple bracelet.
Alternatively, if you favor bangles you could use a longer tape, measure it to fit your wrist, apply a couple of eyelets to both ends and add metal clasp & jump ring for closure. Or just use velcro for simplicity :). To vamp it up, add a couple more holes and attach pretty charms to the bangle :).
I think they are perfect for kids and the young-at-hearts alike. And it is a very quick project too. Try it sometime :).
