Ribbon Bracelet with the Ribbon Resource



 Everybody loves a little bling bling and today I’ve got a really easy bracelet that you can create in no time.  These make wonderful gifts for your friends and with all the ribbon choices we offer along with various beads, the only limit is your imagination. 
 

Gather together ribbon, beads/pearls, needle and bead thread

  Fold your ribbon with a small hill(about ¼” to ½” depending on the side of your pearl) and lay your pearl beside it, then run your needle and thread through to set. 


Continue the first step until you have enough of a length to go around your wrist.  I used 13 beads, but this will varying depending on your size bead and size of bracelet desired.


Once you have all your beads set, then run back through the ribbon and the beads with your needle and thread.  This will help to make sure the bracelet stay tight and secure the beads/pearls. 

 


At the end of your bracelet when you’ve run the thread back through tie a double knot and then run the loose ends back through the three or four of the pearls to finish off. 

 


Finish off your bracelet with a cute bow.  I just slide my over my wrist when I want to wear, but you could just tie on and off  if you prefer. 



 



Other Supplies Used:

Pearls /Beads

Thread

Needle

Love Birds Birdhouse with Graphic 45


The stars of this project are the two love birds, I’m in love with them.  They needed a house to live in so I made the birdhouse for them to roost.  I had to dress the birdhouse up a bit with flowers, ribbon and fussy cut images as we couldn’t have them live in a plain jane house, LOL.  I think I’ll be making more of these birds around Christmas time to nestle them in my tree…I can’t wait.

 




 
Katie has an adorable project to share with you today too using the collection Raining Cats and Dogs so head to Graphic 45's blog and see what she has in store for you.
