Adjustable Ribbon Bracelet

I am feeling fashionista this morning! Weeks ago I got to share my Adjustable Ribbon Bracelet over at Tatertots and Jello and today it is time to bring it home and share it with you! I love when I make a project with endless possibilities and I think this adjustable ribbon bracelet is just that. Think about the embellishments… from felt flowers, to buttons or missing earrings… Love it! There is a good chance that you have some of these items on hand. You need ribbon, embellishments and jewelry wire. I ended up using the thicker lighter type… the one on the right side of the picture. Believe it or not this wire is more bendable that the other one and easier to work with. You can find these items at your local Craft Stores or even Wal-Mart.

Don’t cut it. After you have the ribbon folded get your pins and hold the folded halves together pinning right in the middle of the ribbon.
