Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

Collect 24 used Nespresso capsules; you may need to enjoy a few extra cups of coffee. You will also need a length of elastic thread and 24 beads. I used some left over beads from a previous project, you could use a discarded necklace.
Using a knife to pierce the perforated foil, run it around the edge, remove the foil and empty the coffee grounds from the capsule. Wash the capsule thoroughly.
Pierce the top of each capsule with a sharp tool.
Take a length of the elastic and thread it through the hole on the top of the capsule. Then follow this with a bead, which act
Repeat this process.
The capsules begin to overlap each other.
Apply some tension to the elastic and tie the ends together using 3 knots. Apply a small dab of adhesive to secure the knot and trim the ends of the elastic.
Gently move the capsules to complete the Bracelet.
