Grab a little paper and colored pencils and make some colorful paper bracelets you can wear, sell, or give as gifts to your friends.
Hi everyone! It’s Erica bringing you a fun craft you can make with items laying around the house. I love using things that I already have in the house to craft, that is why I always keep tons of paper, glue, and things to color with. There’s no reason to spend a ton of money on crafts when you can make colorful paper bracelets with just a few items.
These colorful paper bracelets are fun for all ages to make and they’re fun for the whole family to make together.
How to Make Colorful Paper Bracelets:
The fun part about these paper bracelets is you can make them any colors you would like, from shades of blue to a rainbow of colors.

Cut the computer paper into 1″ strips the length of the paper.

Trim off the ends of the pipe cleaner.
Colorful Paper Bracelets Tips:
You don’t need to Measure
Measuring the width of each piece of paper can be time-consuming. Simply eyeball an inch and cut the strips of paper from the bottom to the top. It will not matter if each piece is the same or a little wobbly.
The brighter the better
Sometimes colored pencils color on the lighter side, make sure you press firmly while coloring the strips of paper so they are bright and colorful.
