Make It Monday- Duct Tape Bangle Cuffs Craft for 18" American Girl Dolls

 Make it Monday Sept 2

Today I wanted to share with you an easy and fun way to make bangle cuffs for your dolls using items you may already have on hand. These easy to make bangle cuffs would make a great party craft or sleep over activity.

To create your own bangle cuffs you will need:
-A toilet paper tube
-Duct Tape
-Gem stickers
-Fun Foam Stickers
-Peel and Stick Velcro Dots
-Your Doll
-A Ruler
Step 1- Use your ruler to measure ¼ inch to ½ inch lines on your toilet paper tube
Step 2- Cut your Bangles Out
Step 3- Slice your toilet paper tube strips as shown in the top middle photo above

Step 4- cut from your tape roll enough tape to cover your cardboard. You will have to half your tape lengthwise. Then place your cardboard in the middle of the tape and fold the edges over.
Step 5-Take one of the Velcro dots and place it on top of its mate. Cut it in half you will have enough to make another bangle with the left over Velcro dot.

Step 6- Remove the backing from your Velcro dot and place the bangle on your dolls arm. Then place the Velcro dot, sticky side down on the outside edge of your dolls bangle like in the photos above.
Step 7- Peel back the remaining Velcro dot backing and wrap the other side of the bangle tightly over it and press into place. Trim remaining over hang.
Step 8- Repeat steps 3-7 on the remaining bangles

Step 9- Embellish your bangles as you like and layer them on your dolls arms! Make as many as you want and share with your friends!
