You will need:
-A leather/ faux leather scrap
-A ring base
- Epoxy glue/ glue gun
Step by Step
Step One: First cut your leather into two strips, about two or three centimetres in width and about twenty in length.
Step Two and Three: Fold your longer piece of leather to create a box bow.
Step Four and Five: You may want to glue this so it does not unravel.
Step Six: Add glue to the centre of the bow before applying the second strip of leather across the mid-section.
Step Seven: You may also want to add extra glue to the second strip to ensure it stays on.
Step Eight and Nine: Pinch the middle of the bow; you can use something heavy to secure the bow whilst it dries.
Step Ten: After the glue on the bow has dried, place some on the ring base you'll be using.
Step Eleven and Twelve: Then attach the leather bow to the ring base, and leave it dry, after which it'll be ready to wear.
