trendy chic recycle week! day #3 toilet roll cuff bracelet




isnt this so cute!?!  i LOVE it soooo much!!!  when i first had the idea i didn't think that it would turn out this
cute!!  i love the colors i used!  i would have never put yellow and pink together before but i think it looks really good!  who would have thought that a piece of trash could be so chic?


 you will need: scissors, some fabric, book pages, some bling! (like feathers and pearls), a toilet paper roll, mod podge, and a hot glue gun (not shown)


 first you will need to get out your handy dandy...scissors!  cut your toilet paper roll in half so that it is still a full circle, but just shorter (hamburger style).  then cut the edges of the toilet paper roll so that they are curved just like the picture!  i found that the white rolls are stronger than the brown ones so i used a white one...i have a HUGE collection of these!  i have been accumulating them for a couple of months!! haha.  every time one runs out of toilet paper somebody adds it to the collection cause i have let everybody know that i am collecting them!


the words didn't focus very well, but you could probably tell that this is where i mod podged the book page onto the toilet paper roll.  all i did was tear out a page from a book and unroll the toilet paper roll so that it was flat.  then i traced it and cut it out.  after it was cut out i mod podged it!  after it was all done drying i started decorating it.  for the flowers all i did was cut out little circles and folded them twice so that they would look like a pie shape then i hot glued the tip and stuck it on!  i decorated this cuff with feathers, pearls, and fabric.  then i cut a strip of fabric out and hot glued the ends of it to the ends of the cuff so that it would be a tie.  the toilet paper roll is kinda skinny, so it doesn't reach all the way around my wrist.  this is why i needed a tie.  i hope you enjoyed this post!  and thanks for visiting my blog :)

  13. I think everything typed was actually very logical.
    But, what about this? what if you were to create a awesome headline?
    I am not suggesting your content isn't solid., but what if you added a title that grabbed people's attention?
    I mean "trendy chic recycle week! day #3 toilet roll cuff bracelet"
    is kinda boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create post headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about what you've written.
    Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.
