Step One

Trace a circle with your pencil on the pool printie, using the inside of one of the bracelets as a guide.

Step Two

Carefully cut out the circle keeping the edge as round as possible. Match the cutout printie to one of the bracelets and trim any edges you may see.

Step Three

On the side showing the "water", add a thin line of glue all around the edge of the circle.

Step Four

Place one of the bracelets on top of the circle making sure to line it up and no edges are showing. Let dry for several minutes before going on the next step.

Step Five

After allowing the glue to dry for a few minutes, turn over and add a thin line of glue to the bottom.

Step Six

Place a bracelet on the glue taking care to line up both bracelets. This will be the bottom of the pool. Allow to dry a couple of minutes.

Step Seven

Turn your "pool" back over so you can see the "water". Add glue around the top of the bracelet.

Step Eight

Add another bracelet, make sure they are lined up evenly.

Step Eight Continued

Glue the last bracelet into to place, line up evenly. Remove any glue that may have dripped. Let dry and enjoy your miniature wading pool!
