Hi Sonia, Thanks for stopping by the blog! We were really surprised to learn that Ashley created her design with just an ear of corn! I think this technique would be great to use with children. You should try using the leftover part of lettuce for a stamp...the results are beautiful!

Hi Patricia, We're so glad to hear you're interested in donating your fabric to our Blankets for Good initiative! While we aren't fabric donations at this time, we are hoping to create a program for those interested in donating their fabric! We can't thank you enough for your interest in supporting our employee led initiative! In the meantime, if you have fabric remnants at home, I recommend contacting your local Project Linus chapter : http://www.projectlinus.org/volunteer/

Hi Natalie, Thanks for visiting the blog! We had no idea slap bracelets were metal rulers until we peeled over the plastic covering. It was quite the surprise! If we weren't making 1000 bracelets for an event, I think we would have gone with the upcycled method! Just keep in mind the type of scissors you use when cutting the ruler!

Thanks, Amada! We had a lot of fun making them and even got to test them out at our local children's museum this past weekend! If you end up making your own bracelet, we'd love to see the finished results!
