Die cut Felt, Buttons & Ribbon Bracelets


I have finished a couple of the bracelets I have been working on this weekend.
This is what I will be teaching at CHA next weekend.

These can really become addictive. Using a Die like one made by Sizzix you can cut out felt shapes. It sure beats using scissors. Get out your jar of mixed match buttons. I know you have one somewhere. If you don't have a jar around, start cutting off buttons from clothing before throwing it away and saving the buttons. Some day you will be so glad you did. In the mean time Joann's has a great assortment of buttons you can purchase. Get some ribbon, about 1/2 yard of three different designs about 3/8" wide and a length longer than your wrist about 5/8" wide. I use embroidery floss to stitch my felt for design. You can glue all the pieces together or sew them together.

If enough of you would like a class I would be happy to teach one. Just leave a comment at the bottom of this post.

Blessings, Diane

Wow, those are nice! I'd definitely like a class on this. I can picture making these as stocking stuffers! Have fun at CHA.

These are adorable!! I am anxious to make some, but wondered if you could give a quick explanation for making the flowers? Love your blog!!

I'm all about your flower bracelets and would love to know two things: 1) how you make the flowers (I've tried to copy them in miniature for my handcrafted hair clips but I'm guessing you've developed a better way and 2) how you make and attach the jump ring closure mechanism. Unbelievably fabulous design -- please show me more!
