Sharing a Smile: Easiest Cuff Bracelet EVER!


How cute is this!!  She-Sheds are the new Man-Caves!


Little sis and I made a trip to Michael's to pick up some supplies for a new light fixture I'm making for my latest work-in-progress:  a "She-Shed".  We have a great storage building in our backyard that has electricity, cabinets and paneled walls and it is currently holding a hodgepodge of camping gear, horse blankets and tack and a few bicycles.  My plan is to clean that out and make it another gathering place or a hiding place, as the mood strikes.  More on that to come!

As I was in the jewelry section to find some cute pieces to add to the light shade, my trusty helper found a cute and easy craft for us to make.  I love a leather cuff bracelet and Shortcuts from Blue Moon Beads makes it super easy and fast to make one.

First you choose the cuff you want.



I chose the hot pink to try something different and sister chose the gold.  
They come with little clips on them and you get to pick out the metal connector 
you want to add to the middle:



Steps involved:
  1. Remove cuff and connector from packages
  2. Snap connector onto clips on cuff
  3. Put it on!
I chose a silver wing and little sis chose a gold cross cut-out.

The cuff and the connector are $3.99 each, but this past weekend they were on sale for 50% off.  I don't think they're on sale this week, but there's always the magic 40% off coupon!

Hope you enjoyed this complicated tutorial.  Never fear--with a pair of scissors and 90 seconds, you too can create this intricate piece of jewelry!  Have a great day, friends!
