Lovely Ribbon Bracelets

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

This twist on the classic friendship bracelet takes only a few minutes to put together.

  • Scissors
  • Self-adhesive Velcro (buy precut circles or squares or long strips to cut yourself)
  • Tacky glue (optional)
  • White office label
  • Pen or marker


1. For each bracelet, measure and cut a length of ribbon long enough to go around a child's wrist plus enough extra to fold under the ends.
