Repurposed Toilet Paper roll Bracelet

Do you have tons of toilet paper rolls laying around?  Well, I have always wanted to make something cute with them.  I found a tutorial for this  here on Sugar Bee Crafts.  I love how Mandy's turned out.  I tried it yesterday and I showed them to my 17 year old daughter and her friend. They LOVED them!  Then I spilled what I made them out of.

My daughter said,  "Uhhhh  That's a little gross Mom.  Gross?  No, it's just reusing something you would other wise toss in the garbage, or hopefully recycle.  Why not recycle it into something that's functional and cute??
Here's the first one I made.  I love the pretty button in the center!  

This one I made with gray fabric I got for free at a garage sale. Wahoo!!

I didn't take a picture of the strap I made from fabric to hold on the cuff.  I glued on some velcro to the inside of the cuff, then another piece of velcro on the strap.  It works great!
