Make a Zipper Cuff

The awesome zipper ideas keep coming from our Super Secret Stashbusting crafters! This time, Heather at Wax Eloquent came up with this brand new never-before-seen way to use zippers. She took some zippers I sent her (in a completely crazy envelope of mismatching stuff), and turned them into a great cuff. This is a no-sew project, and a great way to use up old zippers (I have a thrifted bag of zippers that weighs about ten pounds, so keep the zipper ideas coming, kids!)

Project Estimate:

  • 4 zippers, on hand or $1 each
  • Ribbon, on hand
  • Cardboard roll, on hand
  • Hot glue, on hand
  • Elmer's glue, on hand

Total: FREE and up

    LOVE! No-sew and stash-busting! It’s a hyphen extravaganza! Since she added the rubber band to the back, I think you can turn this into a nice coffee cup sleeve too!

    That is a beautiful braclet! I was just wondering, does elmers glue hold for moderate wear? Also, does the old paper towel roll fit all sizes? Good idea!
