Step 1: Measure your wrist
Measure your wrist with a tape measure.
Step 2: Cut ribbon
Remove 1/2 in. / 1 cm. from wrist measurement and cut that length from the ribbon.
Step 3: Add ribbon crimps to both sides of ribbon
Slide ribbon into crimp and press down using your needle-nose pliers to secure into place (this should be tight). Repeat the process on the other side of ribbon.
Step 4: Open a jump ring
Use two needle nose pliers to open your jump ring.
Tip: The best way to open a jump ring is by twisting ends in opposite directions. Pulling ends apart could break your jump ring.
Step 5: Attach jump ring to ribbon crimp
Slide jump ring onto the hoop of your crimp.
Step 7: Close jump ring
Close jump ring with your chain-nose pliers.
Step 8: Add jump ring on the other side
Add a jump ring to the other side. If you’re making this bracelet as a gift, now is the time to attach a bracelet extender. If you’re attaching rhinestones, cut them to your desired length and stitch them on using complementary thread.
