Comic Book Cuff Bracelet

by Amy Bowerman

I’m totally geeking out over my latest project!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE it and I hope you will too :)  Come check it out and then I’ll show you how to make one yourself.

Comic Book Cuff Bracelet

Comic Book Cuff Bracelet

The Octopode Factory just released these awesome Avengers images.   My last attempt at creating an Octopode Factory Charm Bracelet  worked out well so I decided to try it again with the new images and a slightly different spin.

Comic Book Cuff Bracelet Collage I LOVE comic book art!  I created this bracelet with Comic Book clippings left over from one of my favorite creations of ALL TIME…The Comic Book School Desk!  I managed to squeeze out a Flower pot with the leftovers from that project too.  It’s only natural that I would want an awesome cuff bracelet to feel extra Super.  Now all I need is a cape!

Comic Book Cuff Bracelet Collage I really love it…I’m wearing it now and I feel like a total bad ass!  Okay,  I won’t torture you any longer here’s how you can make a Super Cuff Bracelet for yourself.  Just let me grab my cape…

How to Make a Comic Book Cuff Bracelet:

Comic Book Cuff Bracelet Cutting images I got a huge lot of comics on Ebay for $10 way back when I was working on the school desk.  Just search for comic book lot.

Mod Podge Ribbon Yup its ribbon!  Heavy grosgrain ribbon.  Just goes to show you that you really can Mod Podge ANYTHING!  Mod Podge is MY Super Hero!

Comic Book Cuff Bracelet Adding Eyelets

Comic Book Cuff Bracelet Sealing Edges Clear nail polish is pretty Super too…although I rarely use it on my nails…that’s what Mod Podge is for isn’t it?

Comic Book Cuff Bracelet Attaching Chain You can use any clasp you want.  I just like the magnetic kind because I have no patience for lobster clasps.  I have no patience for shoelaces either….Where’s the velcro at??

Shrink Plastic Charms

Shrink Plastic Charms Colored With Copic Markers You know what else is Super?  Copic Markers that’s what!  Gelly Roll pens are pretty awesome too…I used those for detailing.  You can check out another tutorial on how to use Gelly Roll Pens on Copic Art HERE.

 

Stamped Shrink Plastic Charms I happened to have a Super Hero Sentiment set from Recollections that I honestly haven’t used since my son’s Mario Party.  Stamp with Archival ink and Sprinkle Ranger Holographic embossing powder over the image but don’t heat it…the toaster will take care of that!

*Leave a thick ring around the hole or it will break when you add jump rings.

Shrink Plastic Super Hero's About 3 minutes in the oven and they are ready to wear!

Watch out Wonder Woman

This is my I’m a Bad Ass face.  I decided to leave my cape at home so I would blend in.  I can’t have the civilians knowing about my super (crafty) powers.

Well I’m off to save the world!  Thanks for stopping by!

Have a “Super” day!

Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
It will always be interesting to read through content from other writers and practice a little something from their sites.

Holy Shrinking Plastic, Batman! A Superhero Cuff? But my parents are still alive and my bankroll doesn’t support a batcave- it’s a miracle!

Are you monitoring my DVR? Are my kids’ (& hubby’s) rooms bugged??

Honestly, I take a few days (okay, more like a week) off from my blog list and Octopode Factory comes out with Avengers images…. wait right here. I need to finish my Paypal action- there! Now I can fight crime in style! And plan a party.

Thanks Amy! I almost missed out on that one.
