I found this tutorial for easy, cute bracelets on my favorite craft blog, I Am Momma-Hear Me Roar. I decided to make some as gifts for friends. I made this one with ribbon, instead of leather, like Cheri does. Not because I thought it was better, but because my beads were too small for the leather string.
I think it turned out pretty cute with the ribbon. And this way, it's no big deal if it gets wet.
this blog. It was pretty easy. I just wrapped the tube, folded in the edges, and taped it closed.
