Materials: White button down shirt, 1-inch black satin ribbon, fabric scissors, iron, starch spray, gold brad fasteners, Velcro and hot glue gun
Carefully remove the cuffs and collar from the shirt along the sewn edge with fabric scissors.
Pro tip: Heavily starch and iron the collar and cuffs so that they stay stiff and crisp. Also be sure to take out the collar tips before ironing!
After ironing the cuffs, use two brass plated fasteners to make cuff links by placing them into the buttonholes on both sides.
Place a small piece of Velcro on the insides of each cuff, close to the edge (to increase flare), for easy closing. Pro Tip: Use Velcro with adhesive strips to avoid sewing.
Hot glue a piece of the 1-inch black ribbon along the base of the neck of the collar. Tie a bow with the ribbon and staple the center to keep its form. Hot glue the bow to the front of the collar and apply a small piece of Velcro for easy closing.
