Review & Giveaway - Rubber Band Jewelry at Craft Gossip-1

 This giveaway is now closed.


So I know that this isn’t scrapbooking, but when Design originals contacted me I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to review the Totally Awesome Rubber Band Jewelry by Colleen Dorsey. As well as give a copy away to one of you!


If one of your kids has a loom (Rainbow Loom, Cra-Z-Loom, or FunLoom), then they will love this book. Review & Giveaway - Rubber Band Jewelry at Craft Gossip-2

In the first section Colleen Dorsey introduces the basics: covering the tools and materials you will need, understanding patterns, and making a basic bracelet.Review & Giveaway - Rubber Band Jewelry at Craft Gossip-3

If you don’t have a loom you can learn how to make a basic bracelet with a crochet hook, and a pen cap!

She ends with a set of Terrific Tips & Tricks, before moving on to showing you 10 advanced projects each with step by step instructions and photos. Go from simple and complex bracelets, to charms earrings and even a belt. Review & Giveaway - Rubber Band Jewelry at Craft Gossip-4

The book is well laid out, and looks very colorful and fun, and would appeal to kids for sure.

Now for the giveaway! Just leave me a comment letting me know if your kids are into the loom craze! I’ll pick a winner on Friday January 17th. Make sure to leave a valid e-mail address in the e-mail field so that I can contact you if you’re the winner.

    ha ha ha. I never had any kids, if I could win this it’s for me! Trying to learn it and the kids on videos make it look sooooo easy.
    Would love to have a detailed instruction book to help me out…

    My great-nieces and nephews and grandkids are all into the rubberband looms, so I was the hero for Christmas. But now their parents want more projects for them to make, so bring on the projects.

    My granddaughter got a loom for Christmas and has been making bracelets like crazy. The funny
    thing is, my son (her uncle) got it for her and he has been making bracelets. He finally got himself a loom. He has made a lot of pretty ones, including a Minion bracelet.

    My daughter is 20 but her and her friends make all the really intricate ones. They are teaching the younger kids in the family how to use their looms they got for Christmas.

  11. Regina says

    My son hasn’t used the loom – his classmates taught him how to do it on his fingers. He and I are both sporting MANY variations – great family fun!
