I received an e-mail from Photojojo with "Make Your Own" in the subject line and instead of instantly moving it to its own folder to read later, I opened it and all my hopes of getting some of that paper done for class vanished. It was about how to print off pictures to make cuffs and I couldn't resist!
(And I have abnormally TINY wrists, I can't wear watches and bracelets have a tendency to slide off my hand, so it was nice to be able to make something fun that fit my small wrists.)
The top of picture I took when friends and I went to see Stonehenge.
This one is a photo of the abbey ruins at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Scotland. This one I made a tad too tight, but it still fits.
This one is a bridge. I forget what it's called.
(Sorry about the quality of the photo (OF the photo) the light was kind of going.)
The back. Sorry about the threads, I didn't clip them yet. I used a button here, but snaps with the others.
I have a lot more to do:
(The Stonehenge one is lying flat at the bottom and the whole picture of the Holyrood Palace is the one at the very top and the bridge is the one below Holyrood Palace.)
They were VERY easy to do. The hardest part, for me, was the snaps because I am always battling with snaps. I prefer to sew closures on, but the snap-on ones obviously look better... but it took a few tries.
It was a lot of fun and a fun way to show off pieces of photographs.
(Just for the record, I'm actually not that sensitive, I was just having fun giving them a hard time.
I love their website.)
Here's the link to the website (http://photojojo.com/content/diy/photo-cuffs
) if you'd like to try it for yourself! I personally didn't follow their instructions, I just stole their idea, so I thought I'd give them credit.
(Sorry, this is such a long post! I have a terrible time showing anything without talking a lot about it.)
