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.

 

Let me know think about what you read!
