Embroider a Cardboard Tube Bangle

What do you do with the empty cardboard tube when you finish a roll of tape?  Do you toss them in the recycling bin, or are you the type who packs them away just in case you come across a good idea for reusing them?   If you answered the latter, then this project from Alison at Whimsey Box is one you’ll want to remember!  Using an empty tape roll, a leather punch, and a few colors of embroidery floss, she created a beautiful bracelet design.  Doesn’t it make you want to go use up some tape?  [how to embroider a cardboard tube bangle]
