Cut the leather string to a length about 20 inches and hold in half. Tie a single knot in the folded end to form a loop. Before pulling this tight make sure that your loop is the right size for the small button to pass through, be careful however to make sure the loop is not too large as this may cause the bracelet to come undone.

Step 2:Thread the 5 large buttons

Pick large buttons as the first to get started. Have the two loose ends of cord facing you and thread through two of the holes in the button with the cord coming out at the front. Cross the cord and thread diagonally through the other two holes in the button from the front to the back and pull tight. Repeat the previous step with the 5 large buttons. And tie a knot now. If the steps are correct, an X shape will show on the front and backside will same as the picture shows.  

Step 3:String the small button

Give a final knot now on the last reef knot. So snip the ends finished here. Check the back side same as the picture shows. Cut off the excess leather string. Now you get it ! 

Flower buttons are my mom’s favorite. So that’s why i choose them. You can buy some unfinished buttons, and paint it by yourself. Mark some words on it for your mom. Wish all mothers a happy Mother’s Day !
