This is so much fun, I've been waiting and waiting to share this with you.
My son's belt gave up the ghost a few months ago...it was three layers of leather stitched together along the edges. Well, being the farm boy he is he's been pretty rough on it so as you can see one of the layers came loose and was done for.
Soooo, I decided it would make great key chains and cuff bracelets!!!
These are so simple to make....
Trim to the desired length and shape. For the example I used the end of the belt (after the loops) and peeled them apart the rest of the way.
I added holes at the bottom to match the sides.
Stamp with desired images. I experimented and used Archival, Staz-On, Brilliance and Adirondack Pigment Inks and they all worked great! I added color to the edges using Archival Ink and the Ink Blending Tool (of course!).

Add eyelet ~ I used my Crop-A-Dial and it cut like butter! Add a key ring and you're finished!!!
NOW, you can take the same basic steps and create a very cool and hip leather cuff bracelet!
Stamp and ink as desired...
