If you are the mother of a tween, or a teen, or if you listen to pop radio, you certainly know who One Direction is. If you are lucky enough to NOT know who they are…congratulations, your ears probably aren't bleeding right now. I jest. No really, I am kidding…there is nothing wrong with a good boy band. In full disclosure, I will admit that Justin Timberlake...formerly of ' NSYNC... aka the ultimate boy band... is my celebrity crush.
So, One Direction is taking over the world…this is indisputable. How do I know? Because my niece has tickets to see them in concert…. in Detroit…..June 12, 2013….Yes you did read that right….2013. Part of me wonders if that isn't a little optimistic of the band. The other Part of me is really impressed and a little star struck over it.
In honor of my niece's infatuation with the band I made her a bracelet. To keep her company for a year while she waits to see the concert.
Wanna make one for your Tween? Super easy. I printed a variety of pictures of the boys on regular printer paper on my InkJet using "best" print quality. I sprayed the entire page with a clear sealant spray but if you use a laser printer or toner based copy you can skip this step. You can also seal the picture with packing tape before you glue it down. I purchased the bottle caps with jump rings attached. They came with a template for the inside so I traced the template and cut the boys out. I use a thin glue dot to hold the paper in place and then covered the picture with a Bottle Cap Epoxy Dot. I also purchased large jewels intended for the bottle caps... because every boy band bracelet needs some bling. I purchased everything at Hobby Lobby.
