How to Make a Comic Cuff Bracelet

Mod Podge has changed my life.  Seriously.  I've used it on so many projects lately.  Here's the first:  a comic cuff bracelet.

1.  You'll need a bottle of Mod Podge, your favorite comic, a paintbrush, and a plastic cuff bracelet.  You may also want to use scissors if you prefer cleaner edges.  *The bracelet I used came from Claire's.  If you can't find one, you could always try making one from a vinyl record.
2.  Brush Mod Podge onto your cuff.  It's best to work on a small area at a time.
3.  Tear out strips of the comic and wrap it around the cuff where there is glue.  Use scrap pieces to fill in the spots where the strip didn't completely wrap around.
4.  Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the entire cuff is covered.
5.  Brush a layer of Mod Podge on the cuff to seal the comic.  The glue will dry clear.
6.  After an hour, your bracelet is ready to wear!

A quick and easy (slightly sticky) project.  :)
