Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

This was largely an experiment to see how rainbow cellophane would do sandwiched between bubble wrap. Cellophane doesn't melt or fuse with bubble wrap, so you have to make sure the outer layers of plastic are fused around the edges of the cellophane to seal it in. Firstly, cut out rough squares of the cellophane, sandwich them between two sheets of bubble wrap, and fuse them together (sandwich them between two sheets of parchment paper and iron). Do this in a well ventilated area, since the fumes can be toxic. Add two more layers of bubble wrap, for a total of four all together.
Next I carefully cut out each square, leaving a tiny edge around the cellophane pieces to hold the layers together. If you don't leave that tiny edge, you run the risk of the cellophane separating from the wrap and your pieces peeling apart.
Once the pieces are cut out, it's just a matter of punching small holes with a needle and adding O rings.
The final bubble wrap: Rainbow shells bracelet. The iridescence of the bracelet varies depending on how the light hits it. Sometimes it's just pearly white, and others the colors really pop.
