ScarletCalliope Shabby Bracelet 4

Happy Tuesday Creative Friends!

First of all, I have to say that after our exciting wedding blog hop over the weekend I am on a HIGH! I’ve never received so many wonderful words of encouragement! All of that love inspires me and makes me want to keep on creating. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!

Today I have a shabby chic inspired wrap bracelet that is perfect for using up those scraps of pretty fabric you might have around. I started off by making my flowers using felt for the base and then twisting and turning the ribbon and fabric and hot-gluing it into place. I added a pearl in the center to make it pretty.

This stunning Rumple Ribbon is called Oh Darling from the “Dinner Party” collection from Lovebug Creations. For only $6.00 for this collection of 12 yards, this ribbon is not only beautiful but it’s a bargain as well!

I used strips of fabric that measured 1″ x 14″ and wrapped them around the leather and tied them in a knot to secure them. You could cover the whole bracelet or leave peeks of leather showing.

I used this adorable fabric called Paris Flea Market.

The leather wrap bracelet is from my friends at Cerdafied Leather.

The final step is to glue the flowers onto the fabric wrapped around the bracelet. I used a drop of tacky glue in the middle and hot glue around the outside to give it a super strong bond.  Easy!
