Guest Project — Make Stamped Initial Cuff Links!! {Father’s Day gift idea}

26 May


Hi, everyone! 

I’m Julie
from Less-Than-Perfect
Life of Bliss
& I’m happy to be here today to show you how to
make Dad some  
 

Stamped Initial Cuff Links for Father’s Day!
Even beginner crafters
can do this project in less than 20 minutes, & when you’re done, you’ll
have a great personalized gift that will really show Dad how much you love him!
You’ll need: 

  • a few scraps
    of light-colored fabric ( I chose beige linen), 
  • some bezel cuff links (found
    where jewelry making supplies are sold)
  • a small covered button kit
  • some mini
    alphabet stamps 
  • ink pad
  • some strong adhesive such as E-6000.

Start by cutting the
fabric in two small squares, approximately 1 inch X 1 inch each.
Next, stamp Dad’s
initials onto the fabric.
Follow the
instructions for making the covered button, being careful to keep the stamped
initial centered on the front of the button.
  Then use the point of a
pair of pliers or other tool to bend the shank of the button over & allow
the button to lie flat.
Now you’re ready to
attach the buttons to the cuff links! Using E-6000 or another strong adhesive,
carefully glue the buttons into the bezels of the cuff links.

That’s it! A
super-easy project that’s a lot of fun as well!

And Dad’s favorite part will be knowing that you made them especially
for him!
Wow – I love that idea Julie!!
