hi everyone!!! so i was lurkin around here, deciding i wanted to make some resin bangles and went onto ebay and checked out some molds... too bad NONE of them fit my wrists
so that bummed me out. so i went into my craft room, and looked in my junk drawer. i had all sorts of these ribbon spool dealies from all my ribbon that i never wanted to throw out because i knew there was a use for them.
well tonight i found the use!
i ripped off the tops and bottoms of them to get this lovely cardboard round bangle shape!
i did that for a bunch of them. and here they are before:
so then i started wrapping them in fabric... i decided i didnt like that at all, it just didnt look that nice... it was OKAY but not nice enough!
then a light went off in my head and told me RIBBON! so i wrapped some red ribbon around one but it was too plain.... so i added some cherry ribbon horizontally all the way around. and i liked that. then i added some buttons and thought this is totally cute!!! and then i added a nice little inside ribbon to hold it all in place.
then i did some more fabric ones and hated them.
i then had another brilliant idea! i had bought these letter charms from dollarama last week and decided theyd be ADORABLE on a bracelet.
so i did some more ribbon ones.. only this time i added the charms and put cute things on them! and added matching buttons. and VOILA!!!!!
NOTE: i will take better pics tomorrow. its dark in here and late! also i need to add lining to the other ones!
thanks for looking!!!
oh and heres a pic with the fabric ones...
