Make a Flowery Crafty Bands Bracelet

Hi! I'm Alison, daughter of Kate Vickers
, a scrapbooker, crafter and recent Guest Designer at Epiphany Crafts. I'm 8 years old and I live in Ontario, Canada. I'm happy to be a Guest Designer at Crafty Bands today! I want to show you how to make this flower bracelet.

Alison


Final Project

You will need:
  1. Silk or fabric flowers - We got ours from Michael's


  • Crafty Bands punch
  • (included in the Starter Kit)
  • 5 Bubble Caps
  • 5 Crafty Snaps
  • Adhesive - We used Helmar Premium Craft Glue
  • Scrapbooking paper - We used 'Pretty Parkway' from the 5th & Frolic Collection by American Crafts


  • Bracelet Supplies

    How to Make Your Bracelet
    1. Remove the flowers from the stems and remove the plastic centres. You will need 10 flowers, 2 for each Crafty Snap.

    Remove Flower

    2. Take the scrapbooking paper and put it into the Crafty Bands punch. Line up your paper inside to show the image that you would like to punch out.

    3. Put the Bubble Cap inside the punch and press down firmly until you hear a click. The Bubble Cap will be attached to your punched out image. Remove it from the punch.

    Add Bubble Cap

    4. Glue the Bubble Cap onto the top of the Crafty Snap.

    Glue Epoxy onto base

    5. Insert the back of the Crafty Snap into the inside of the bracelet. Add two of the flowers as shown here.

    Add Flower to Band

    6. Add the Crafty Snap top onto the flower, lining up the bottom and top of the Crafty Snap. Press down to attach them. You should hear a click.

    Add Cap

    7. Repeat steps 1 to 6 for the remaining holes on the bracelet. Your finished bracelet should look something like this.
