You thought that I forgot didn't you? No, instead I have just been spending some quality time with the family and not so much time on the computer the last couple of days. Nothing too exciting...just relaxing together...watching movies and football, sitting in front of the fire, leisurely reading together. You know, just fun together time where we are all in the same room. I know, shocking isn't it?
But I am back now with my finally 12 Days project. This is a project that I saw posted by Rhonna Farrar and totally fell in love!!! You can see her post about them here. For my bracelets, I decided that I wanted to make them for Emily and Mia. Kara sent me their wrist measurements...so I am really hoping that they fit with enough room to actually clasp them...cross your fingers for me.
The green one is for Emily (who is 9) and the blue one is for Mia (who is 3.) I glued the buttons all together and onto the ribbon and then also sewed them on so they should be attached really sturdily.
For the ends of the ribbons, I used an embellishment/ribbon clasp that I found in a Making Memories Ribbon & Attachments kit. Then I simply added jump rings onto the end of that with the bracelet closures. For the ribbons, I cut the end with pinking shears and then just folded under the last 1/4" on each end under the ribbon clasp. They are really so easy and cute to make! I think that I may just need to make one for me too (am I too old to wear something like this?!?)
And that is our final project of our 12 Days of Christmas Creating. I hope that you have enjoyed it and maybe something along the way inspired you. As for myself, I am feeling much more prepared for the coming holiday than I normally do this time of the year. Thanks for indulging me!!! And now, how about a giveaway? I have 2 Unity Christmas stamps to give away, Jesus is the Reason and Do Not Open. Simply tell me if you are planning to make anything this holiday season and I will do the drawing from all the entries Tuesday evening (Dec. 2nd.)
