no pic. BUT you need

Step 2: Cutting the Tape (Part 1)

You need to estimate how long your wrist is. I put myself at 10in. because it is a little loose. Cut 2 (x)inch strips

Step 3: Sticking It Together (Part 1)

Take your strips and stick them together (sticky sides facing each other)

Step 4: Cutting the Tape (Part 2)

Cut another strip of similar length. THEN, cut it in half like so

Step 5: Sticking It Together (Part 2)

Take the strips and tape them to both sides of the first strip. Now fold over the ends to the other side.

Step 6: Velcro Stickage

Take the Velcro pieces and put them at the edge of one end on the band. Take the part with no Velcro and put it on your wrist. Now take the part with velcro and put it at a spot where it feels comfortable for your wrist.

Step 7: Decoration (May Take Time)

Take a small picture of the design you want. Put some type of tape over it so it stays in place. Cut the design out CAREFULLY. I cannot stress that enough. Once done, find a spot on the band where it would fit well and put the design in there

Step 8: Final Touch Up

And that's all there is to it!
