DIY & Design: color block leather bracelets

Mar 14, 2012

  Bright colors + pastel palettes + color blocking are everywhere this Spring!
I just had to do a fashion DIY that incorporated all three of them.
Had to.

I present to you... color block leather bracelets.

Additional tips:
supplies. I found all of them at Hobby LobbyMichael's 
Step 2. It may take some time and patience to make these holes. I recommend an X-acto knife or something very sharp (I used a paring knife. Haaaa. It was funny indeed...and by that I mean exasperating).
Step 3. I actually have no idea if the fastening pieces are in fact called "pins and docks" (I made it up:). 
If anyone has any real idea as to what they are called, I'd love to be corrected!
Step 4. You have to tie the ends in order for them to stay secure (on the inside side of the bracelet)

 I made two different ones using two leather straps and different colors- you can make as many as you want! Stack these babies!!

& the finished product....
