diy valentino inspired bracelet

This project was inspired from a Valentino raincoat a saw a few weeks ago.  I loved the clear vinyl! Reminds me of the 80’s and something different.  If you can find a hole puncher, I can’t remember where I grab this from, but I assume you can get it at your local craft store or hardware store. The project takes about 15 minutes to make.  Enjoy your new accessory. 
– studs (purchased from esty)
– hammer
– scissors
– vinyl (got from Joanns)
– hole puncher
– measuring tape
– permanent market 
– magnetic clasp  (not pictured)
Step 1: measure and mark1/2 inch between studs
Step 2: punch holes in vinyl with hole puncher
Step 3: put bottom of the stud in vinyl (make sure to leave the first hole empty)
Step 4: put top of stud in the vinyl 
Step 5: hammer the back of the stud on a hard surface
Step 6: continue to put all the studs in the vinyl strip, leaving an extra hole on each end
Step 7: put the magnetic clasp on each side
