I may not be Wonder Woman, but there are days when I feel like I could surely use some super powers. How about you? If you’re standing strong in the face of adversity or just navigating the challenges of day to day life, a little bit of super hero inspiration may be just the thing you need to stay the course. In this case, I was inspired to whip up some Wonder Woman cuffs I can use to deflect whatever life tosses my way. Now if I can whip up a golden lasso of truth, saucy bustier and an invisible plane, we’ll really be talking!
Here’s what you need to make some Wonder Woman Cuffs of your own! Kapow!
2 1″ x 6″ 20 gauge Aluminum Stamping Blanks
2 dimensional metal star charms
2 silver tone Metal Elements Aluminum Hollow Rivets 1/16 Inch Diameter (100)
ImpressArt 3mm, Fun Star Design Stamp
Ergo-Angle Metal Stamping Hammer
ImpressArt 2 by 2-Inch Steel Block
Folk Art Enamel Acrylic Paint, Licorice
1/16 Rivet Tool Kit Punch, & Flare Hollow Rivets – EZ-RIVET
ImpressArt Bracelet Bending Bar
ImpressArt Flush Cutters
Paper towel or soft cloth
Step one: Use the star stamp to stamp stars around the edges of the bracelet blank. Use the round end of your brass hammer to add texture to the edges as shown. Step two: Use a ruler to mark the center point of your blank. Step three: Snip the tops off of the star charms with flush cutters. (You can sand these edges with a heavy grit sand paper or jeweler’s file if you like.)
Step four: Use the piercing side of the riveting tool to make a hole in the marked center of your bracelet blanks and your star charms. Step five: Place rivet into the holes on the star and the blank, the rounded side faces up, the star should be facing with the raised areas towards the bracelet. Use the riveting side of the riveting tool to screw the rivet down securing the star and blank together. Step six: Insert one side of your bracelet into the bracelet bending pliers as shown.
Step seven: Bend the bracelet over the arch of the bracelet bending pliers as shown, this will bend one half of your bracelet. Step eight: Flip the bracelet over and repeat. Now you have a bracelet! Step nine: Dab the enamel paint into the stamped stars with a cotton swab or your finger tips. Let this sit for about 30 seconds, then wipe the ink from the surface, leaving some in the stars to help define them.
That’s it! You’re a crafty super hero! Aw, yiss.
These Wonder Woman Cuffs make me feel like I can take on the world. How about you, wonder woman?
