I have a confession to make: I am a newspaper hoarder... Since I've been home with my kids and clipping coupons, I have amassed quite the stack of newspapers. I keep thinking I'll read more or that I could make better use of them than recycling.
My husband thinks I'm nuts...
This project was completed while he was at work. :). I gathered the supplies, including an empty Pringles can he made fun of me for saving.
I started this project quite a while ago and planned to do something with the bottom - I'm not sure what, if it was a snack-sized can it seems a little small. Anyway... I measured up from the bottom...
...and made some little holes to mark the spot.
Then I used a rubber band as a guide.
The band really helped make cutting easier! It was nice to have a guide to run the blade along.
I made a thick and thin bangle and thought I just had to try one that was thick at one end and thin at the other.
Oops! Be careful!
I cut a bunch of strips from the newspaper and started wrapping them around the rings and adhering them with Mod Podge.
The thick one. I really like how neat this ended up looking.
The thin one. I think this ended up looking the best on my wrist.
The tick to thin one. Not my favorite, but I had to try it.
Here they are! I'd like to try again, and I think I'll make a few more thin ones.
