Hello to all of you beautiful, creative people! I am so very excited to be posting my first project for Bad Girls Couture Design Team! So, for my first project, I upcycled/ repurposed a toilet paper roll tube. Yes, a blank tube was transformed into a beautiful, wearable art cuff. I pulled some sticky backed canvas from my stash. I created a video of my process for you!
Just a few tips that I found in creating this… reinforce your tube with some thin metal to keep the shape better. I also punch a hole and tied ribbon in each end to hold it on better and it looked pretty. I used FabriTac glue… holds ANYTHING!! If you want to stitch a shape, trace, poke holes evenly around the shape and backstitch. It’s one of my favorite techniques!
I hope you were inspired by the new media and paints! Look around your house for something to upcycle! It’s so fun to turn trash into treasure!
I can’t wait to share my next project in February! Until then, enjoy all the lovely posts and create some amazing art!
