  • 1. Use sharp scissors to cut 17”, 19” and 21” lengths from Crinkle Wire. Thread one end of each strand through crimp tube. Make 1/4” loop, and insert each end of wire back into crimp tube. Use Designer Crimper to crimp. Place crimp cover over crimp tube and crimp closed. Place crimp tube approximately 3-1/2” from finished end of shortest wire length; crimp. String bead and additional crimp tube on wire; crimp second crimp tube to secure bead. Repeat crimp tube, bead, and crimp tube grouping twice more, leaving 3” between each grouping.

Loop through loop of Spring Ring and place each wire end back into crimp tube; crimp. Place crimp cover over crimped tube; crimp.
  • 4. Pierce two tiny holes near center of paper flower. Thread needle; loop in half to create two-ply thread. Leaving 3” tail, stitch up through first hole, down through second hole, around Crinkle Wire, and up through first hole. Repeat and thread needle down to back of flower. Use tail to tie double knot. Place small dot of adhesive on knot to secure. Let dry thoroughly before wearing.
