How to make a tetra charm

As I wrote the previous post, I write here how to make a tetra charm.
You need only a piece of rectangle, stuffing and a piece of tape or string.
Petit gift for customers, tetra charm
I made in two sizes. The one is from 7cm x 3.5 cm rectangle, and the smaller one is from 5cm x 2.5 cm rectangle. They both includes allowances of 3mm.

I really like the little tetras, the bracelt is very cute. The bread crust looks very yummy. I see tomatoes, bell peppers, what else did you put on it.
My friend loves bracelts i'm going to make her one.
Thank you so very much
