Cuff Bracelet Tutorial


I ripped this page out of my Lucky magazine.

Got me thinking...what could we make with Zippers?!
I took my wicked awesome western shirt:


Cut off the cuff:
(with my good scissors that I have to hide because my people use them to open bacon...yeah...I said Bacon! Gah!)




Now, we will make the zipper flowers. I took the zipper and cut off the pull part. Then start twisting, turning, gluing, twist, turn, glue, lather, rinse, repeat.



Just for contrast, I used another zipper with different teeth and twisted it a different way.







Add some small "petals" and glue everything onto your cuff!
I use Beacon Fabri Tac. It holds super awesome and you can wash it if you need to.

  10. Looks great. Your zipper flowers look great, I have some brain-block that keeps me from being able to make ones that don't look like crap. :P

  18. That is brilliant to use a cuff on a shirt. I would have never thought of that. But now I must make. Thanks for sharing the how to and linking up to the CSI project.
