Somehow it doesn’t work.

After my son deconstructed my daughter’s slap bracelet a while ago and discovering that they are made with a tape measure the kids have been bugging me almost daily to try making some.

I bought a cheap tape measure for $2.50.

Then my husband took it apart and cut it in a few lengths for bracelets. He even rounded a few edges and filed them so they weren’t sharp.
But no matter how many instructions I found online and tried they just don’t want to “slap” like a store bought bracelets.

I still haven’t given up hope on making bracelets, I just need to try something else.
