I Dream of Paris

Yesterday, we re-used empty tape dispensers to hold different kinds of tape.

Today, I'll show you how we can turn these empty tape rings
from blah to Tada!

Wrap a piece of ribbon (you'll need about 1 yard) around the ring
and secure the ends with a glue gun.


Tada! The plain ring is now a pretty pendant just by
adding a chain and/or a string of pearls.


Finish off with a favorite charm like this tiny Eiffel Tower...

...And you'll have a necklace that's totally unique!
