Leather Cuff Bracelet, DIY

I am always looking for fast and easy inexpensive  jewelery DIY.
I love how this cuff gold leather bracelet looks. 
Soo ,Why not
Make It!

Tutorial
Things you need
1.A piece of leather( 2 inches by 7/12 inches)
3.X-acto Knife
4.Rhinestone Studs
5.Mallet


Cut your leather 2 inches by 71/2 inches
Cut 9 lines through the leather leaving about 3/4 of an inch on each side.
Cut a small x where you want your stud to go,


Using something sturdy ( I used a wrench) hammer down your stud.   Don't hit it too hard, but do give it a firm whack~ like maybe you want to do to your kids sometimes.;)~JK
Cut two small slits for the rhinestones

 


And your all done :)
You could also use buttons or snaps for the closure.
I might make another one, but paint the leather gold.
Have a fantastic Thursday!!
