1) Measure the cord around your wrist and cut off 2 inches extra from your measurement.

2) Start adding your beads. When adding a charm, loop it through a jump ring first before adding it to your bracelet. Use the straight nose + bent nose pliers to open and close jump rings

3) Make sure there is at least 1 inch left on either side of the bracelet before tying. Be sure to tie the ends 3 times tightly. Cut off any excess cord. Add a drop of glue on the knot to secure it. Let it dry for at least 15 minutes before handling.

Make 2 or 3 more for the stackable bracelet look!

1) Place pins on the middle of the collar in the front and in the back.

2) Starting from the front of the shirt , poke a hole where you placed your pin. Then start cutting around the collar until you reach the second pin in the back(cutting towards the right, but it will be the left side when wearing the shirt).

3) With a measuring tape or ruler, place a pin 1 inch down below the collar. Pin through both pieces of the shirt.

4) Instead of cutting straight down to meet the pin, cut diagonally. Then, continue to cut off the 1 inch around the neckline (be mindful of the shoulder seam that you don't cut through it, if you do use fabric glue or hand stitch it).

5) Try on the shirt to see if the cut is low enough for you.

6) Cut off the right sleeve. Make sure to cut under the seams to get a raw edge.

7) Cut off the hem of the left sleeve for a raw edge.

8) Lightly tug on the raw edges so they will curl.
