I love using my Cricut for making projects. A few months ago I made some pillow covers for my couch, this past summer I made some adorable onsies for my new grandson (*swoon*- that boy has stolen my heart!).
Just the other day I made some personalized coffee mugs and tomorrow I’ll be working on personalized pint glasses. I’ve also got some other projects in the works that I’m really excited about.
However, yesterday I made this adorable faux leather bracelet cuff and am in love with it!
Faux Leather Bracelet Instructions
First, I gathered my supplies.
I used some super fun metallic faux leather in Peacock and iron-on foil in Chrome.
I also used a standard 12×12 adhesive cutting mat and the iron-on protective sheet.
Using snaps for the bracelet closure was the easiest and quickest. You can purchase a snap tool and snaps at your local craft store.
Once I was ready with my supplies, I opened the Cricut Design Space and got to work. I didn’t see exactly what I was looking for, so I created my own image using the shapes tool.

Since wrist sizes vary, and I have a particularly small one, you will need to adjust the length of the bracelet.
So, after you open the project, select “customize” and click on the rectangle.
Measure your wrist and add one inch to allow for the snaps. You are now ready to make your faux leather bracelet.
*TIP Select the “custom” setting on your Cricut machine dial. When you are prompted to choose a material, select “metallic faux leather”.
After your faux leather and design have finished cutting, weed your design. Set your iron on it’s highest setting and use the protective sheet when ironing.
I ironed mine twice, just for good measure.
Once the iron-on foil has cooled, add your snaps, carefully following the manufacturers instructions. I found that using two snaps worrd better than one.
You are now ready to gift, or wear, your faux leather bracelet cuff. Doesn’t it look adorable?
