How to create a summer ribbon friendship bracelet

wire cuff bangle

Step One

Using Flat Nose Pliers make sure all of the jumprings are fully closed. Lay the ribbon flat on the table and thread on a Jumpring so that it sits about 6" from the left hand side. Ensure the Jumpring is resting towards the left.

Step Two

Fold the righthand side of the ribbon back on itself and place the next Jumpring so that it sits overlapping the first one.

Step Three

Thread the folded piece of ribbon through the gap created by the overlap.

Step Four

Feed the ribbon up and through the second Jumpring and gently pull the ribbon ends apart to lock it into position.

Step Five

Fold the right hand side of the ribbon back over itself to expose the second Jumpring and place the third Jumpring so it overlaps the previous one.

Step Six

Repeat steps 3 and 4 to secure the Jumpring to the bracelet. Continue adding Jumprings in this way until all 25 are attached.

Step Seven

Tie a simple overhand knot and bow to fasten the bracelet to your wrist (Trim any excess ribbon with scissors ensuring you leave enough to tie the bow.
