Thanks! I was looking at it on my phone and it looked more purple than the pink bands I've seen!

I bought my tattoos from Amazon. They came in "books" with about five pages full of tattoos. The princess tattoos were large. But, I cut the princess heads off their bodies, and then put them on my magic band. The heads were a perfect size.

our Magic Bands

Here's are our finished bands. The red is my mothers, she found sandal stickers in the kids section at Joann's. Hers has about 4 coats of Sally Hansen top and bottom coat, to help hold the gems in place. It is basically double sided tape with crystals. Turned out pretty good. The Blue is mine. I tried several things but kept going back to the dots. It has 2 coats of the base coat on it. Both are still flexible, ( been bending and testing them) so far no cracking.

I did discover that the black nail polish would smudge when removing it. I finally took a scrubbie and nail polish remover and that got it off.

One more week and we will be in Disney world!!! And boy do I need a vacation.

Well I was unable to load the pics. Maybe I'll figure it out.

You need to have a few more posts before you will be able to do pics. I think it is 15 posts, so go chat and then come back and show us!

I measures and its 7/8ths or 22mm on the child band. Unfortunately I can't find any at that size. I have searched and searched and the only one I can find is a silicon watch strap keeper. I am going to keep looking though.

Can you tell me what kind of glue you used to attach the jibbitz to the band?

After searching High and low I went with these:

I think these will be perfect for the bands for children. I will let you know how well they work once I receive them.

I think the silicon watch strap keeper would work better than the hard plastic ones that I got. Mine weren't as flexible as I would have liked.

I just used super glue. I'm not sure how well it will hold up though.

I used glitter nail polish! The webbing stuff is rhinestone ribbon. I was going to glue individual crystals on them but I found this ribbon and thought it might be more durable (and easier to put on!). It held up pretty well for our seven days in the parks. I only had to re-glue a couple sections of my 8 year old daughters after 4 days of her wearing it. She's pretty tough on her jewelry!!

Quick question
Are these holding up in the pool as well? Or is everyone just wearing them in the park?

Does anyone have a real life picture of the green band just plain, not painted or designed yet? I'm thinking of theming mine after our alma mater, but the colors of the college are more kelly green and the band looks very lime in the pictures online, so I'm not sure any stickers or tattoos we add would match well. Thanks!
