Hobby Lobby has some adorable faux leather ribbon patterns, and the best part is they go on sale for 50% when the
ribbon goes on sale! Amazon also has some really cute patterns. I have made some leather bows. Check out that post here. I got to wondering what else I could do with this amazing product. I turned to Design Space to find faux leather projects for Cricut
Cricut Design Space Leather Projects
Design Space has some great projects. These are just a few that caught my eye.
I was inspired to try my hand at making a bracelet.
Make Your Own Faux Leather Bracelet with Cricut
It’s easy to make your own bracelet in Design Space. Measure your wrist and decide on the desired length. Insert a square into Design Space and unlock to make a rectangle. Size the rectangle to the desired dimensions of your bracelet. From images, look for a lace pattern you like. The one I selected had two layers, simple ungroup and delete one of the layers. I used a toggle clasp, so I sliced two small circles to attach the jump rings with. You can use a snap kit instead.
To cut your faux leather, use a purple strong grip mat, put the leather right side down on the mat, mirror your image, and select faux leather paper-thin. I used the Cricut Maker. The leather did not cut all the way through the first time. I fed the mat into the machine again and cut a second time. That did the trick.
I think I will try the bookmarks next. That would make a cute gift for a teacher or any avid reader.
