Upcycle Leather Jean Tag Bracelet

Upcycled Jean Label Bracelet

An eco-friendly, way cheap, super easy and quick, gorgeous  leather bracelet is what you will find in this tutorial.  I originally shared this project at Carolyn’s Homework.  Maybe you noticed the bracelet mania going on here and everywhere.  They are so cute for summer, and can be made from recycled materials to look stunning for little cost.  Time to rip the label off your jeans and transform it into beautiful wrist decor.

   Although I do use my Sizzix to emboss the leather, you can absolutely do this project without it.


Label from jeans

Hole punch and eyelet setter (I use Crop-a-dile in this tutorial)

Metal chain long enough for the bracelet to fit wrist

Jewelry Pliers to open and close jumprings

Jewelry clasp for closure

Sizzix and embossing folder of you choice (optional)

Crafter’s Pick Glue

Paper Rose

Krylon Clear Coat (to seal paper rose)
