The other day my friend Sarah posted pictures on instagram of bracelets she was making. I had to make them. Like, drop everything, make them NOW! Has that ever happened to you? I followed her links back to this tutorial and set out to gather supplies. Turns out, this is the hardest part of this project.
Have you ever heard of ribbon crimps? hmm me either. Until now that is! Last Friday, Steve and I set out on a tour of all of the local craft stores in search of these elusive ribbon crimps. Found some at Hobby Lobby, but they were incredibly small. They say Joanns carries an assortment package. Apparently Sarah bought them all. sigh.
Etsy to the rescue! I found lots of shops with ribbon crimps on etsy and ordered an assortment pack from this shop on Friday afternoon. By dinnertime Friday I had an email saying my ribbon crimps had been shipped! And, about 2pm Monday afternoon, the mailman put them in my mailbox. Amazing! By the time I left the house at 3:30 Monday, these were on my arm....
I do believe you should gather your scraps, order some ribbon crimps, and make some too. Hop to it!
