Step 1

Using your pen…

… draw a heart on the white leather piece.

Cut it out.



Step 2

Apply a layer of glue on the back of the heart…

… like this.

Place the heart in the middle of the round leather piece. Let it dry well.


Step 3

Make small points on the rectangular piece of leather, using white paint.

It will look like this.  Let it dry.


Step 4

Make a hole on top of the heart, near upper edge of the round leather piece.

Like this.

You can use white paint to decorate it too.


Step 5

When the rectangular piece is dry, take it and bend it in half.

Place the ribbon end over the edges, like this…

… and use the flat nose pliers to tighten.


Step 6

Put the eyelet into the hole you made earlier.

It will look like this on the back of the piece.

Put the vario pliers like this…

… and press well.

That is. The eyelet is in its place.

The front looks like this.
