Valentine's Day Card: Animal Attraction

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

There's nothing tame about these fun and funky jungle-print wristbands.


  • Cardboard tubes
  • Stapler
  • Black elastic
  • Tacky glue
  • Animal-print felt
  • Ribbon
  • Card stock


Cut cardboard tubes into 2-inch lengths. Snip each so that it opens into a cuff shape.

Animal Attraction - Step 1

Using a stapler, attach the ends of a 3 1/2-inch piece of 1/4-inch-wide black elastic as shown; make sure the staple points are facing outward.

Apply tacky glue to the outside of the cuff and cover the cuff and the elastic ends with a 2- by 6-inch strip of

animal-print felt.

Let the glue dry, then trim the felt as needed.

Use a ribbon to tie on a note cut from card stock.
