Today the Designer Crafts Connection his having a Metallic Oly*Fun™ Blog Hop! Find the links to all the projects shared by participating Designers on the Designer Craft Connection blog.
The metallic shades of Oly*Fun™ just seemed perfect to me for making lightweight, flexible cuff bracelets! I have several more ideas planned for the other metallic shades too!

Measure and cut gold Oly*Fun™ fabric to 3 1/4 x 10” (adjust length according to wrist size).
Fold short ends up 1/4” and glue down with Fabri-Tac adhesive. Fold over lengthwise to center. Glue. Fold opposed side upward and glue down. Note: Use adhesive sparingly to avoid showing through the Oly*Fun™.
Cut 1” square of black self-adhesive Velcro® closure. Mount one half on inside outer edge of fabric bracelet. Mount opposite half on outside of opposite end of bracelet.
When closed, it reminded me of hammered metal at this point. To make it have less “sharp” angles, work with fingers to soften the folds.
Roll Black Makin’s Clay® to setting #1 on Ultimate Clay Machine™ (about 1/8” thick). Randomly apply assorted shades of Designer Foils. Roll again to setting #2 (foiling will crackle slightly).
