To make these bracelets you will need a cardboard tube cut in half, some patriotic scrapbook paper (or red construction paper) some glitter glue bottles, star stickers or sequins, and a glue stick. A bottle of white glue is needed if not using stickers. And, of course you’ll need scissors as well!

Cut cardboard tube in half, about 2 1/2-inches. Cut a piece of scrapbook or construction paper twice the length of the tube and wide enough to go all the way around the tube. Use glue stick to attach the paper to the tube, tucking the excess paper inside the tube. Allow to dry.
