Alternative materials....

Today i am going to show you an easy way to make a bracelet. The materials i used are very simple.
A cylinder box from paper cutting in pieces ( I used one from chips)
Colour ribbon ( slim )
Chain with strass

We roll up the ribbon around the paper circle untill it's all covered (you better use a very long piece cause we have to roll it up twice, one before we put the chain on and one after). Then we put some glue around and we put the chain on and we start to roll the ribbon up again between the gaps from the strass. When it's all covered  up we tied up the ribbon and it's ready.

What do you think?
