I made a lot of phone straps as gifts this year, I like to have a supply of gifts already made which can be given at occasions which I don’t have time to prepare for or are unexpected.

The kind of straps are great for Lolita or Hime Gyaru friends and they are so easy to make!

You just need some pretty random lace/ribbon/flowers/felt/glue/pretty things.

So grab all of your pretty materials in one place.VioletLeBeaux-Hime-Gyaru-Phone-Strap-592_1392 copyArrange them together how you’d like, I prefer to have one main piece of interest, a couple of  smaller things and then ribbon and lace dangling down.So this is going to be the main part…VioletLeBeaux-Hime-Gyaru-Phone-Strap-594_1392 copy

And then dangling ribbons and lace behind it…

Glue the pieces together one by one.

Add a little metal link to the back so you can attach it to a strap later and cover all of the back with a piece of felt.
