Jump ring
Jewelry pliers

  1. Cut a 3 1/2-inch strip of ribbon. Fold in half. Using your index fingers, push the folded corners into themselves to make a squash fold. This will form a point at the bottom of the ribbon. Iron the point to keep its shape.
  2. Fold the top of the ribbon over by about 1/4 inch and attach with hot glue. Hide the seam by hot-gluing the magnet over it.
  3. Use a T-pin to poke a hole through the point. Open the jump ring with jewelry pliers and loop it through the hole. Add the charm, and close the jump ring with pliers.
