CIY: “Leather” Bracelet

So, I went WAY out-of-the-box with this CIY! Instead of making a leather bracelet, I made a bracelet that looks like leather!

I was at the craft store and spied this awesome leather looking paper. Of course, I knew I had to use it for something.  Then, it hit me! Why not use this to make my leather bracelet? So, there you have it folks, a leather bracelet that isn’t leather at all!

What do you think?

{Step 1}: Put your bracelet on your paper.  You want to cut a strip of paper that is thick enough to have both sides folded in and long enough to cover your entire bracelet.

{Step 2}: Put Mod Podge over your bracelet.

{Step 3}: Cover your bracelet with your paper, making sure your bracelet is in the center of your paper. When you get to the end, fold your paper under and glue it down. This will give you a nice edge.

{Step 4}: Put Mod Podge on one side of your paper. Fold your paper in. Smooth out your paper while you press down on your paper and move around your bracelet.

{Step 5}: Repeat Step 3 with the other side of your paper.

{Step 6}: Put a coat of Mod Podge over your paper.  You are finished!

    Did you do it just like doing decoupage? Love the result!

    That’s a great use of that type of paper. And so nice to have a new bracelet in practically no time at all. :)
