Easy Plaid Cuff


I know I just recently posted a daisy cuff, but I couldn't resist making another spring inspired cuff today. I stopped into Michael's to pick up some shrinky dink material for a future craft when I spotted the plaid cuff in their spring jewelry supplies area. I used a jean material flower pin for the top of the cuff, but any pin or pendant will work. Don't forget to use your 40% off coupon toward the cuff or pin/pendant to keep the cost low.


For this project you will need:


Plaid Cuff (Michael's Crafts) You could also make your own by Mod Podging fabric to a plain cuff which they also sell.


Fabric Flower Pendant/Pin (Michael's Crafts)


Wire Snips


Gorilla Super Glue (or other krazy type glue that will bond both fabric and metal).





Remove the bale and pin finding off of the back of the flower. Wire snips work well. You can easily pry these off.


Find the flat part of the pin and apply a liberal amount of glue. You can also "rough up" the metal slightly with sandpaper so the glue adheres well.


Center the flower and press well until the flower is in place.

Let dry 24 hours.

  1. Cool craft. Had no idea Michaels sold these cuffs. Will have to look for them on my next trip.They actually sell a lot of nice pendants and things for very low prices. I bought one there for $3.00. Took it home and placed it on a silver chain. got more compliments on it than on other pieces I've paid much more for.

  3. Great project! I can't seem to bring myself to make purchases in Michaels without my 40% off coupon anymore. I really need to get a smart phone so that I always have my coupons on me!

  7. This is such a great project! I love it's simplicity. In fact, it's downright cinchy ... and would be perfect at our "It's a Cinch" multi-blog link party. The link stays open until midnight Friday and when you link at one blog, you're automatically linked up to the party's five co-hosts ...
