Start by choosing and specifying the length you need for your bracelet. Wrap the ribbon around your wrist as many times as you like, then add about two inches to that size. The additional length is for the doubling and binding of the band.

Cut the ribbon according to your length and apply Fray Check on both sides. Doing so will keep the lace from fraying as you work. Your wristband will also look nice after completing the project.

Use a sewing machine or a needle and thread to secure the ends, but you can also use glue to finish the bracelet faster. Fold over one side of the ribbon about a quarter of an inch and apply hot glue or stitch it in place. Fold another quarter of an inch and secure it.
Do the same thing on the opposite side, then slide the stretchy hair tie onto the ribbon. Fold lace over the hair tie and secure it in place by stitching or applying hot glue.
Grab a button, as this will serve as the ribbon bracelet clasp. You can use two buttons if you like, as they add color and style to the bracelet. All you have to do is to stitch or glue them together before attaching them to one of the bracelet ribbon ends.
Alternatively, you can use a toggle clasp or a lobster clasp. These hooks let you close the bracelet effortlessly.
Attach the button to the ribbon at the other end. That way, you can slip the snap into the tie as you close the band.
Wrap your finished ribbon bracelet around your wrist and wear it with pride! You can also make more ribbon bracelets and invite your kids or friends to join you but be warned! This handcraft project can be very addictive.
