I was sitting on the train, gazing out the window and imagining what could be. Then I looked around the carriage for some people watching. My attention was quickly focused on a girl. She was wearing a tape measure brooch. This moment inspired me.... So I have made some of my own.
Why don't you try it for yourself! All you need is a tape measure, scissors, a hot glue gun, brooch clasps and optional extras such as buttons.
- Cut and arrange your pieces of tape measure, depending on your desired design.
- Adhere your pieces together, using the hot glue gun.
- When assembled, adhere a brooch clasp to the reverse. Alternatively, you could always make your design into a hair clip or necklace. Think outside the square.
