Friendship Bracelet

Every once in a while I peruse high end gift shops to see if I can knock off their expensive stuff. I found this in New York City and thought I might have a go. Since I already had everything, this was a freebie.
I had some waxed linen twine from the bead section of Michaels, a 3/4" hole punch and an empty soda can. I was in business.

I took some sharp scissors and cup off the top and bottom of the can before I cut it in half to flatten it. Then I punched out the circles. I found that it was best to place the side I wasn't going to use face up in the punch. Burrs formed on the edges of the side that was face up and I could hide them in the next step.
 I folded the circles in half. This was a bit tricky. I found it best to line up the edges carefully then slowly crease the center fold. If there is a bit of the inside showing, you can always trim it off.
 Knot the twine then slip the folded circle next to it. Place a drop of super glue inside the circle and hold it for a few seconds.  Make a knot on the other end of the folded circle.  Make your next knot about one and a half to two inches away and place another folded circle next to it.
Continue until you have run out of circles or it is the length you wish. Wrap it around your wrist for a bohemian chic look. How groovy.

Wasn't it a little sharp on your wrist?

Oddly enough, it wasn't sharp at all. think it might have been due to the shapes being punched out rather than cut.
