Time20 minutes + drying time
Gather your tools and materials.
Add a small dab of glue to the metal backs of each rhinestone setting.
Center it on the cuff and press down gently to attach.
Make sure it is centered from the side and top view. Set it aside to dry for an hour before moving to the next step.
Grab the silk ribbon and place an inch of the end at the inside bottom of the cuff. Hold with your finger.
Start wrapping the long end of the ribbon around the top of the cuff. Keep the inch of ribbon at the bottom as you wrap between each rhinestone setting.
The bottom ribbon will eventually get tucked behind the longer ribbon. You can twist the ribbon a little bit to get it to fit inside the space between the rhinestones.
Continue wrapping the entire cuff and stop after the last stone.
Hold the ribbon under the cuff and pull a little forward to create a loop.
Thread the end of the ribbon through the loop to form a knot.
Tighten the knot on the inside of the cuff to hide it.
Put a dab of glue right at the base of the knot.
Set it aside to dry for at least 4 hours before moving to the next step.
Once the glue has dried and you are certain the glue held the knot in place (if not just add a little more glue and let dry) trim off the excess ribbon with scissors.
The perfect stacking cuff to add a little dose of sparkle to your wrist!
