You will need:
Double Sided Tape OR Fabric Glue
1 Paper Towel Roll
Cut the paper towel roll in half. Take one of the halves and roll tightly so that the diameter measures about ½ of an inch. Use the masking tape to secure the roll.
Measure the fabric so that it will fit around the roll (like you would when wrapping a gift). Leave a ½ inch allowance at each end. Mine measured to about 12 inches by 3.5 inches. Secure the fabric with double sided tape or fabric glue. Finally, tuck the ends of the fabric into each end of the roll. I used the tip of my scissors to tuck it in nicely.
Tada! Now you have a great way to store your rings. If you are a crafter you probably will already have all of the materials necessary. I found my piece of fabric at the craft store for about $2.00 and I have plenty left for other projects.

It snowed all day on Monday and my 6 year old wanted to make a tiny snowman. I thought I'd document the occasion. The snow baby stands at about a foot and a half. Snow in Wisconsin is nothing extraordinary but snow in mid-October is a bit of a surprise! Yikes. Luckily it all melted the next day but our little snowman is the proof that it surely was there.
