Did you know that you can transfer laser printed images onto leather and wood with only one tool? Yep! That's why I have recently fell deeply in love with my wood burner! You can do sooooo many things with it! Keep reading and learn how <3
You will need:
- Light color leather for the body of the cuff and string leather to tie it (I got mine from Michael's in a scrap leather bag)
- Wood Burner (I have the Creative Versa-Tool and I looooove it!!)
- A Black and white, reversed, laser printed image (this means use a printer like kinko's or office depot, not your home printer) Download the free printable here
- Using really good scissors, cut your leather into 1' x 5' stripes.
- Cut out the words that you want to use from your printed image.
- Place your piece of paper with the words facing down on the leather.
- Before you turn on your wood burner, make sure you have selected the tip you want. I used the transfer tip.
- Turn on your wood burner and carefully start applying pressure, make sure that you don't move your paper or your words will come out smudged!
Apply pressure on your image in circular motion for about a minute. This will depend on how hot your wood burner gets. A good way to tell when you have it hot enough is when the paper starts turning lightly yellow. Don't let it burn! :)
Carefully peel off your paper. Yay! <3
Using your Crop-A-Dile, Punch holes on the ends of your leather.
Pass your string leather through one of the holes and tie a knot at the end. Do the same for the other side of your leather and you are done!
