summer craft ideas (part four)

today's craft: cardboard tube bracelets
(idea found here)

what you need:
*  tp or paper towel rolls
*  paint
*  scrapbook papers
*  foam brushes
*  clothespins
*  glue
*  misc. materials (beads, buttons, ribbons, magnet letters, little toys)

step one: cut tubes about 2 inches wide. then cut a slit in each one (so it looks like a C).

step two: paint tubes or glue down scraps of paper.

step three: hold tubes together with clothespins and let dry.
step four: glue on beads, snakes and other fun items.

and ta-da...
