Chan Luu Inspired Wrap Bracelet DIY Tutorial

Chan Luu bracelets, typically around $295

My version using this tutorial (sorry the original link no longer works, but click here for my version of the tutorial with video), total materials = $16


I saw this tutorial and just HAD to give it a shot.  My first try was an utter failure but once I got the hang of it, it got easier. One tip is to secure the leather laces to something so they're not flopping around when you're doing the weaving. I used a piece of cardboard and 2 binder clips to keep them stable and it was smooth sailing from there.


That said, I don't think I'm hip enough to actually rock the look...

  2. Hi Amanda - This tutorial was originally created by Robin @ Ruby Mines and was featured both on her blog and the craft site Cutoutandkeep.net but it now looks like both have been removed. :( If I find it again, I'll repost the link.
