Step 2: Starting the Fingers.
Begin by cutting 10 small pentagons. One for each finger.
Poke two holes in each, and place a brass fastener through each hole.
Carefully push each fastener through one layer of the glove, and open them, thus attaching them to the glove.
Don the glove, them wrap a thin strip of tape around the base of each piece, making sure you can still take off the glove.
Step 3: The Cuff.
Cut a piece of cardboard the size you want for your cuff. Roll it up to give it a bending look.
Make small cuts in the end of the cuff, and fold them up.
Tape them up by rolling a piece of tape carefully over them while up.
Poke a hole in each corner of the cuff and push a brass fastener through it.
Attach to the glove in the same way you did the fingers.
Step 4: Adding the String.
Tie a slip knot in one end of the string.
Slip the knot over the other end of the string, and slide it over the cuff.
Open a brass fastener as shown, and close it over the string.
Poke a hole in the middle of the cuff, and push the fastener through it.
This will allow you to tighten the cuff as needed.
