nd in discount stores and even some upscale boutiques for teens. However, there is no reason to go out and buy a bracelet that is just like every other rubber bracelet in town. Creating simple bracelets using rubber bands is not as hard as you may think. In fact, it is possible to assemble a great-looking bracelet in a very short period of time. Step 1 Select a rubber band that fits comfortably around your wrist. It is okay if the band is slightly loose, as it will form the core of the final design for your bracelet. Step 2 Choose thinner rubber bands of different colors that will work with the color of the core band. Cut the additional bands into strings that you can weave or wrap around the core band to create texture. Step 3 Use the sharp tip of the scissors to create a small puncture in the body of the core band. Slide one end of a thinner rubber band through the slit. Tie a knot on the back side in order to hold the string in place. Step 4 Settle on one of two design elements for the bracelet. One option is to tie a second knot on the surface of the core band, then clip off the excess. Repeat the pattern around the core band, using a mix of different colors. An alternative approach is to space additional slits so the strings can be used to create the look of stitching. Remember to tie off the end of the string by making a knot on the back side of the core band. Step 5 Consider personalizing the surface of the rubber bracelet with stenciling. Position the stencil in between the stitches or knots. Use the markers or the model paint to fill in the design or letter on the stencil. Contrasting colors for the stenciling will make the bracelet even more original. Skill: Moderately Easy Ingredients: Rubber bands in various colors and sizes Scissors Model paint or permanent markers Stencil Tip: Always make sure the bracelet is comfortable and does not restrict blood flow through the wrist. Also make sure the body of the bracelet does not pull on any small hairs in the area of the wrist. Warning: Test all the materials used to make the bracelet in advance. The goal is to make sure you are not allergic to the rubber or the ingredients of the ink or paint. An allergic reaction could be painful as well as cause the wrist to discolor.             wide-rubber-bracelets

Bullying occurs when someone uses various means to physically or emotionally intimidatesilicone bands or humiliate someone else. Bullying does not have to be physical; in many cases it is mental or emotional, making use of words and other tactics meant to exclude another and make him or her feel bad. There are have been numerous attempts to stop bullying in schools, in an effort to increase the safety of the school environment. However, it can be difficult to address this problem. Anti-bullying bracelets One of the things that was tried in Britain (and also, on a more limited scale in the U.S.) was the use of bullying bracelets meant to help students through a show of solidarity. The yellow Livestrong bands for cancer awareness became a fashion trend, and many others began using silicon bracelets of different colors to raise awareness of different causes. The bullying bracelets are of the same mold. It is possible to make a fashion statement, while sticking up for a causesilicone bands. And the anti-bullying bracelets were supposed to do just that. In order to give them some cachet, celebrities like Bono from U2 and soccer start David Beckham wore them. The bullying bracelets were supposed help students show that they would not be bullied, and that they would stand by their friends and help prevent their friends from being bullied. However, in the U.K., the plan backfired. The Guardian reported that many students wearing the bullying bracelets became victims themselves. Bullies thought that those wearing the bracelets would make good targets. So, instead of helping students, the bracelets simply marked out more victims for bullies.

If you want to avoid a bully, it is often a good idea to consider some of the behaviors that discourage bullying.                 silicone-diabetic-bracelets
