Intro: Ideas for Tiny Leather Scraps
Have a bunch of tiny leather scraps that seem too small to do anything with? Here is one idea with five quick applications.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- Tiny Leather Scraps
- Circle Punch
- Leather Stamps
- Leather Dye
Depending on Project:
- Thumb Tacks
- Cufflink Blanks
- Earring Posts and Backs
Step 2: Technique and Application
Dampen the leather (I find it cuts better and it needs to be done for stamping.)
Cut circles from tiny leather scraps by placing punch on leather and then wacking a few times with the mallet.
Then center leather stamp over circle and pound a few times with the mallet.
Have fun gluing to cuff-link blanks, thumb tacks, magnets, ribbons, earrings, etc.
