This project ranks up there with my Chalkboard Globe project for the coolness factor. I've seen a few things made with tape measures and trim or even in the form of the image on scrapbook paper. So, I went to Ebay in search of vintage tape measures.
The Ebay description said that it still smelled like oil from a workshop and boy were they right. So the first thing I did was wash it in a bowl of soapy water to remove some of the "old vintage" grease.
Before assembling this cutie I took the ever famous twine and wound a mini spool and threaded it on the outer layer of the bracelet, and distressed it with distressing ink.
The most fun thing about this project is it's a gift for a friend, Gina, with Hiya Luv!!
Gifts are my love language, more so giving than receiving. Searching and discovering the perfect gift for a friend is energizing for me. I wish I could be there for her to open it!!
