DIY Faux Suede Ribbon Bracelets

I had so much fun making these bracelets! Super easy too!
Can you believe they are not real suede?
How awesome is that?
I think they look edgy and cool. Perfect for any outfit, any day. 

Supplies Needed: 

For the black studded bracelet, I wrapped the ribbon 3 times around my wrist before crimping the ribbon clasps to the ends. 

Instead of a jump ring, I added the bit of chain. It adds a bit of class to my rocker- chic bracelet! 
Don't you think?

For the brown and white with gold bracelets, I used the wide ribbon clasp.
This easily creates the effect of a double wrap bracelet. I used the same color ribbon, but you can most definitely mix or match to your liking. Leave a bit of the ribbon exposed (as shown) so you have space to crimp the clasp. Then add your other jewelry findings. 

These would look great with denim or any boho gypsy outfit! 


Like I said, super easy! Which bracelet is your favorite?

These Faux Suede Ribbons are from Gwen Studio's and can be found at Walmart.

Reading is Fun with DCC and Ann Butler Designs

One of my favorite things to craft with is brightly colored foil and when I had the opportunity to play with Ann Butler Designs new foiling papers, I couldn't wait to get started!

As you can see, I had a lot of fun making these beautiful bookmarks! 

Supply list: 

 While your laminating machine is heating up, place the foil on a floral card, colored side up.
 Insert this inside a folded piece of carstock and run through your laminating machine. 

Peel away the foil to reveal the fun! 
Place the same foil on the toner card, again colored side up. The black toner card grabs the 'negative' image from the original floral card!  

Color your flowers in with markers.

Trim to ideal bookmark size and add any foil accented sentiments. 
Stunning aren't they?

Now Reading is Fun!
