Directions

STEP 1

  • Use tape measure to determine size of wrist and then subtract 1” from measurement.

STEP 2

  • Cut three Toffee lace pieces to pre-determined length from Step 1.

STEP 3

  • Place all three lace pieces, side-by-side, on work surface. Pick up end of laces (all three at once); add small drop of glue to each end. While still holding laces in hand, slip ends into ribbon closure; use flat-nose pliers to close ribbon closure on laces, securing three laces together.

STEP 5

  • Cross center lace piece over top lace piece and use glue to adhere lace pieces at intersection. (Note: Place laces on wrist to check position of intersection before adhering laces together.) Let dry.

STEP 6

  • Adhere center lace piece to bottom lace piece on center of laces. Let dry. Adhere two 4mm flat-backed crystals over area where two adhered pieces meet.

STEP 7

  • Adhere remaining 3mm flat-backed crystals, evenly spaced, along lengths of laces. Let dry.

STEP 8

  • Repeat Step 3 to attach ribbon closure to open lace ends. Use jump rings to attach toggle closure to ends.

Tip

  • 1. Use toothpick to apply glue to flat-backed crystals.
