Cardboard Tube Jewelry Holder

Get a paper tube, remove any paper on it and cut to desired length. Cover the tube as desired (step 2 in making a thin vase or pencil holder) Cut slits in the tube along the perimeter (not lengthwise). Cut as many as you need, but space them at least 1/2 inch apart). You can also cut your slits doubly so that you have wider slits. Place necklaces, bangles, bracelets, etc. in the slits. Then thread a ribbon through the tube and hang or affix the tube to a paper-towel holder. To hold rings, cut small horizontal slits and push rings inside.
