DIY: Paper Roll Bracelets

Last month my kids and I had so much fun making paper roll cuff bracelets that we decided to make some more this weekend! We made all sorts of patterns in the cardboard with a very simple tool: a hole puncher!  These can be painted any color but we chose silver for a metallic look. They’d go great with some Robot Hats!

Do you want to make some too? Great! To get started, you’ll need just a few simple supplies.

Punch holes with a hole puncher creating any design you wish. You can trim the cuff size down if your hole puncher won’t reach where you want it.
