Potato Chip Bracelet

This is a real potato chip bag shrunken down to fit as a bracelet. Its been melted to the point where it feels like thicker plastic in the oven. You take 2 chip bags and lay them flat on an OLD cooking pan, you take another pan and lay it on top so it creates a bit of a dome around the chips.

If you have your oven on 350 degrees it should take about 5-8 minutes to shrink the bags right down. BE CAREFUL, and check them every 3-4 minutes. After they’re shrunken down to the size you want them just take them out, and to quick cool them you can pour water on the hot pan carefully. This makes the chip bag EASY to peel off the pan.

I figure that this is an excellent way to recycle.

The back of the first bracelet. I may come up with a better way of making it into a cuff. I just like the X over style of the leather cording.

Always melt these down in a well ventilated area, but it is quite safe to make these inside your home.
