Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

DIY with Pinkbox laces

Remember those colorful rubber strings that were popular when we were kids? You can knot them into bracelets, necklaces, and what not. I remember they only cost P3-4 each. I wonder if they still sell that?

Anyway I was at the Pinkbox office the other day and spotted these shimmery shoe laces (P60 per pair) in a heap. My boss gave me a couple, and as soon as I got home I turned one into a braided bracelet.

If you ask me how I braided four strings into this, I wouldn't know what to say! It was pure instinct. :P

You can do lots of stuff with these laces - you can braid your hair with them, use them as headbands, make an elaborate brooch, and of course, use them as actual shoe laces. Haha. Verniece did a few things with them herself. Here's an example:

Cool right? Disclosure: I work with Pinkbox, but I wasn't asked or paid to write this. I just really love the idea of having laces I can play around with.
