Repurposed Record Bracelet

Inspiration comes fast and furious over at Shop Crop Suey! (Click on the link to see the tutorial on their blog.) The latest was a fantastic quick project on how to use the old record albums and create bracelets.
After I completed this original project using a record cover,

I wondered what I would do with all those left over records...even thinking about creating an album using them(which I still will do)...but in the meantime...what a fun project!
I found that it was way to big for my wrist...then I thought of hooking it together with a traditional bracelelet clasp. But...where to find one of those around here??? Then I remembered something I picked up at my mom's(my MIL's) house in Ocala. She let me go through all her old "junk" as she liked to call it. I referred to it as the best prizes EVER! I found some old snaps she had. I attached snaps to the back of this bracelet to make it more form fitting!!! Gotta love the crop a dile and snaps! I will be using snaps on mini albums soon...KEEP a weathered eye out for that! So to you, Bree and Camille at Shop Crop Suey(Who by the way is having their grand opening tomorrow) I thank you for a fun quick project!!!
