Here we go, made these minion bracelets this week. Single layer band on left side and double bands on right side.
Kids love it, was teaching my daughter and my friend’s son how to make this bracelet.
3 for $5.00 at Five Below, 300 bands and 8-10 clips per pack. Bought two packs of multi-color and a pack of strawbeeey scence.
My order at Joann.com arrived this evening. The colors are very nice. The size of this brand is little larger than Rainbow Loom & Cra-z-Loom bands. The quality of black and purple are the worst. They are very dry, when you stretch the black color, it will turn into dark grey, you can see the white stretch mark on the band, same as purple, you can see the white stretch mark.
But what you paid what you get, that is why they are only $1.19 (Reg. $1.99) per pack.
Check back later and I will write a review here.
Here are 7 of the bracelets we had made in just 5 days. She already gave few bracelets to her friends in school.
Just briefly shown Michelle, my 8 years old girl how to use two pens to work on the fishtail bracelet, here is what she had done, get ready for the x’mas.
Learned this on youtube, it looks lovely than the single loop, and all u need is two fingers or two pens to make it.
My daughter is making lots of rubber band bracelets using her new cra-z-loom bracelet maker.
And the 600 bands are almost gone! Need to get some refills!
As a crafter, I sure pay attention on the most recent and popular craft trend. When I first hear about rainbow loom, I was a little interesting to buy it, but then I stopped and keep doing research on it.
The official brand is call Rainbow Loom, and the loom kit is US$16.99 plus tax at Michael’s, refill bands are US$3.99 per pack with 600 bands and 24 c-clips.
Everything so expensive, and you cannot use coupon to purchase anything for Rainbow loom at Michael’s. So I was waiting and waiting. I told myself don’t get into this trend. Unfortunately, the rainbow loom craft showed up at the girl scouts troop round up, my 8 years old daughter and I made a bracelet there.
At that time, I still told myself don’t buy anything……until one day, my daughter wearing a bracelet to home after school. Her best friend gave her a rainbow loom bracelet. The next day, she got another bracelet again. OMG! The trend finally hit my 3rd grader.
I searched Amazon.com, ebay, Joann.com, hobby lobby, Walmart, Target, ToysRus.com, and found an off brand starter kit call Cra-z-loom at Toysrus.com, it’s is US$14.99 before taxed, and accept coupon, I have a $3 off coupon, so it’s only US$11.99 after coupon.
I love the color of the loom maker and hook, they are pink! Yes, I personally don’t really into the light blue color of the Rainbow Loom loom maker.
So I went to the ToysRus store and purchased the Cra-z-loom starter kit.
My daughter was so happy with this bracelet maker, and started making bracelets.
