I love scrapbook embellishments. They are so cute and clever. I really never got into scrapbooking very much but that never stopped me from buying the stuff. Now that I have some leather pieces, I think I found the perfect platform to display all of these goodies.
Cut two pieces of leather; one 2" wide and one 1 1/4" wide. Try to make them straighter than mine. Cut the length of the larger one the size of your wrist plus 1 1/2". Leave the thinner one alone for now.
Gather all of those nifty brads and grommets.
One day I'll find my leather punch but until then I'll use a nail, a hammer and a scrap piece of wood to make holes in the wider leather strap. Add the brads and grommets but space them about 1/4" from the edges.
After a few holes, this is what the bracelet is beginning to look like. The brads are easy to put in, the grommets are a bit more challenging. After you make your nail hole, you might need to insert a scissor blade to enlarge the hole so that the grommet will fit.
Add snaps at both ends; the male at one end and the female at the other - just like junior high school dances.
Turn the bracelet over (not like the picture above) and run a bead of Elmer's glue along the long edges. Fold up the edges about 1/4" and clamp with a bunch of clothespins or clips. I pulled them off before the glue was completely dried , turned the bracelet to the right side to adjust the edges for any obvious imperfections.
Fold under the ends and glue them in the same manner, mitering the corners,
