Wrap the ribbon around the bauble and glue into place, you can attach the bow separately with a separate dot of glueat the end. Take care with the Ninja Superflex as it might seep through the ribbon and could irritate if it touches your bare skin, so gloves are recommended. The quick drying time as well as the versatility of the Superflex makes it perfect for working on spherical shapes like baubles and gluing many different types of material.
Trim the Preciosa Crystals Cup Chain with the Side Cutters so that they wrap once around the bauble.
Using the Ninja Superflex Syringe draw a line of glue along the ribbonall the way around the baubleand press the cup chain down onto the glue. Hold the cup chain in place a few moments until the glue has set. Take care to avoid touching the glue with your bare skin.
Repeat the above process until you have achieved your desired look.
