Introduction: Leather Bracelet From Shoe Buckle
Remember when I told you how I ended up with just one leg warmer that I turned into a purse? Well this story is longer, so let's just say I lost a shoe.
I didn't want it to throw it out so this is what I came up with to give it an second chance. And I love how my bracelet turned out so much, that I wear it even more that the shoes!
I hope this Instructable will inspire you to see items in your closet or even at a thrift store from a different perspective. What treasure will you find?

Step 1: Tools and Materials
A scrap of leather
No sew snap fastener kit (read the instructions, you might need a hammer or other tools)
My lonely shoe
Step 2: Make a Template
I started by cutting a piece of paper the size of my wrist. And I tested the buckle to make sure it was the perfect width.
Step 3: Cut the Leather
Using the template as a guide, I used the edge of the scissors to mark the outline. Then I cut it out.
Step 4: Attach the Snaps
To attach the snaps I made a mark where I wanted them to be. Then I had to punch a hole with one of the tools provided in the kit. Then with the other tool I assembled the snap.
Step 5: Enjoy!
It's your turn now, take a look at your closet and find something to transform!
