Rhinestone Leather Bracelet

I have been trying out products from The Buckle Boutique.

Today, I'm using the Heat Set Rhinestone Fabric. Here's what they have to say about the fabric:

This
is the most girly rhinestone fabric ever! It is made of beautiful
acrylic stones in pink, blue, yellow, orange and green that are set in
an aluminum backing. There is a heat activated adhesive or hotfix on the
back.
It can be easily cut.
The hot
trend for fall is wrap bracelets. I used a leather cord and the heat set
rhinestone fabric to create this beautiful accessory.I used a smooth leather cord, but I think a suede cord would work even better and still look just as luscious.

First by cutting a length of leather cord. I cut about 24", but it can be as long as you like. Then I snipped, (with regular scissors!), the rhinestone fabric into 1.5" or 2" single strips.

Next, I pressed the Rhinestone Fabric with a household iron on a medium heat setting. I pressed it for 10 seconds, then checked the strip. If it was not tight I applied the iron again.
So simple, no hammers needed to set studs, no tweezers needed to position rhinestones.
I am in love with this material. I think this bracelet came out so cute, I hope you do too!

Look it sparkles in the sun, so it's like a great Halloween accessory if your a Vampire. Lame reference. Have a great weekend.

    I just found your blog through the instagram linkup over at Everything Emily’s blog, and I am in love with everything you post! Your blog is adorable and i’m definitely adding it to my reader.
    I saw on your about me page that you live in Pennsylvania? I always get so excited when I find other bloggers that live in PA, no one ever seems to live here, lol. Which part do you live in? I’m about 30 minutes away from Harrisburg.
