    • Gather materials listed and print out bracelet template on heavy card stock.

    • Cut template out with a scissors.

    • Use a hole punch to carefully punch out the holes indicated on the template. There are many of them and they all need to be done accurately to accommodate the LEGO bricks and plates. TAKE YOUR TIME!

    • Wrap this paper template around your wrist to test fit. Take note of which of the three 2x4 rectangles on the end produces the bracelet size needed when matched up with the 2x4 rectangle on the opposite end.

    • Use this rigid, card stock version as a tracing template to transfer the outline and hole positions accurately to your chosen felt. We know this seems like double the work. However, laying an unpunched template over felt and cutting and punching through both will likely cause some inaccuracy in your resulting felt version.

    • With the bracelet outline AND all holes traced onto your felt, cut and punch just as you had in order to prepare the original tracing template.

  2. Press plates and bricks into place for all punched areas except for the ones on the two ends. Each punched area will have a  plate on the back/wrist side connected to either a plate or brick on the opposite side so that the studs face  outward. The bracelet template will be sandwiched in between.

This will ensure that the Maker Tape doesn't pull up when the flat bracelet is wrapped around wrist into its circular shape.
