Hey! It’s Brynde again from The Ribbon Retreat. I’m so excited to share my
second tutorial with you. Today I will be showing you two ways to make a
bracelet with The Ribbon Retreat’s Alphabet Tiles and coordinating supplies.

Supplies

Everything I used for this project can be purchased at The Ribbon Retreat. The
supplies I used are:

Alphabet Tiles
¾” Square Hole Punch
Square Bezel Bracelet
E6000
Alphabet Tile Images (I used Heartstrings)
¾” Square Epoxy Dots (Optional)

The first bracelet option will be with a name or word from the Alphabet Tiles.
There are six squares on the bracelet. You can remove squares for a small wrist
or shorter name/word. The bracelet with six squares is 9 ½” long from clasp to
end of chain. This was pretty roomy on my adult wrist.

Add a dab of glue on the back of your letters.

This version of the bracelet is very quick and easy! Start by adding a dab of glue
to the back of your letters.

Press the tile into the squares of the bracelet.

And press them in to the squares on the bracelet.

Finish the rest of the letters and let it dry overnight.

It’s as easy as that! Glue all your letters in and let it dry over night. You have a
super cute personalized bracelet to keep or give away!

Supplies

The next way I’m going to show you is by using the Alphabet Tile Images. You
will use the square punch and punch out your desired number of images.

Turn your punch upside down so you can see and punch out your image.

Be sure to turn the punch upside down. You are able to see what you are
punching out and get it to line up just perfect!

Apply glue all over the tile even to the edges.

Next put your glue on the tile. It doesn’t matter which side. The picture shows a
dab of glue in the center. I recommend smearing it over the entire surface. This
prevents the image from curling up in the corners.

Add the image to the tile.

Let the glue dry for about 10 minutes or so. This way, the images aren’t sliding all
over.

Apply epoxy dot or mod podge.

At this point you can add a ¾” square epoxy dot if you would like. It’s an
awesome raised finish that’s very quick and easy. Just be careful to not touch the
sticky side when you are taking them off the sheet. Your fingerprint will be visible
in the finished product.

I actually chose to coat my tiles in a matte mod podge finish.

Glue tiles into bracelet.

Glue the finished tiles in to the bracelet squares and you have a totally different
bracelet. Be sure to let your glue dry over night. I just love those Heartstrings
Images! The name bracelet is for my sister. This one is all mine!


Thanks Brynde!

I love this bracelet and think it would make a perfect gift for my mom and grandma’s by putting pictures of my boys on it. I also love the images that are all ready to be cut and glued on. There are lots of great choices!
