Spend less than one minute grabbing some of the tape measure stash .
Take 2 minutes to find the snap thingo's and waste five minutes looking for the hammer.
(Ignore the snap instructions -it saves time).
Take a minute to wrap a tape measure around your wrist and chop it off at the right length.
With a minute to go, hammer some snaps into your tape measures and you're done.
It'll take you far far longer to decide between subtle vintage glamour,
or 80's Madonna style than it did to actually make them.
Or... as a foundation member of the one-step-too-far club, I suggest making a whole garland of them.
'Tis the season after all.
