So, I’m a copy cat. I’m one of those people that will walk around a store and refuse to buy something if I think I can make it. 99% of the time, I don’t, but this is one of the few times I have attempted to make something I wanted. I saw this amazing emerald suede bow bracelet via Pantone and I wanted it. Although, suede really isn’t my thing, so I opted for an emerald velvet ribbon.
What you’ll need: Ribbon/ Hook and eye/ Glue Gun
Step One: Cut your ribbon into four pieces. Cut one length the size of your wrist. Then a 4″ strip, a 3″ strip and a 1.5″ strip.
Step Two: Glue the ends of the 4″ strip together. making sure they are centered and press down in the middle. Do the same for the 3″ strip.
Step Three: Glue the 3″ strip on top of the 4″ and press together.
Step Five: Secure the hook between the center of the bow and the wrist piece. Glue down.
Step Six: Glue the hook to the other end of the wrist piece. You might have to remeasure to give allowance for the hook, depending on how tight you want the bracelet.
When you hook them together, you have a neat little velvet bow bracelet. I love it. Although, I am a little biased, because I made it. And it falls perfectly on my Snow White tattoo, so it looks like a cute little frame. Love!
