Baubles, Bangles, and Beads- Ribbon Bracelet Tutorial

I love this song by Frank Sinatra, which apparently is from the musical Kismet. But his version of Baubles, Bangles, and Beads is so much... jazzier! And it was the perfect background music for makin' some nice bracelets (which was, by the way, super easy)!

So... here are yo materials:
Thin ribbon, and beads. Lots of beads.
Wrap the ribbon, still wound around its thingy, around your wrist so that it has two tails on either side. Make the tails much longer than you think you'll need so you'll be able to tie them in a bow later.

Cut that ribbon!

 Wrap the ribbon around your wrist in the same way again as before, this time holding the tails together with your free hand at the place you want the end of your bracelet to be. Mark that place or just remember it, and then thread your first bead onto the ribbon and tie a knot around it once it's in that spot.

Thread the rest of your beads on, tying on the last bead in the same way as the first. Ta da! That's it!

Now model that bracelet like nobody's business!

You'll glitter and gleam so, you'll make somebody dream so...

Hope your summer's been good so far!
