Coat the back of the paper with Mod Podge.  Center the paper over the cardboard rectangle.  Press to secure.  Wrap the ends of the paper around to the back of the cardboard.  Press and overlap the ends. Top-coat both sides with a coat of Mod Podge.  Use your fingers to press out any air bubbles.  Smooth your brushstrokes.  Allow to dry.  Bend a gentle curve in the bracelet.
