Over the weekend, my niece and I designed some novel friendship bracelets for herself and her buddies, to hand out on Valentine’s Day.
Which little girl would not like to get one of these from her friend? Anyhow, it’s another demonstration of the infinite number of lovely things one can make from recycled toilet paper rolls.
How to Make this Friendship Bracelet
1. Cut the toilet paper roll core open.
2. Cut off a strip of about 1 1/4 inch.
3. Round off the edges of your cuff.
4. With a hole punch, punch two holes on both cuff ends.
5. With a craft punch, cut out some love hearts, evenly spaced over the bracelet.
6. On the inside of the cuff, glue on some red, pink, or lilac pieces of recycled paper.
8. Wrap it in a pretty box and put a nice Valentine tag on it.
All you need is:
- a couple of toilet paper rolls (or a kitchen roll),
- a hole punch,
- a craft punch,
- some scrap paper,
- a tat of glue and
- a remnant of ribbon.
