Calling all cat lovers! This cuff bracelet proudly displays the quote time spend with cats is never wasted." It's a fun way to show you are an animal lover or special gift you can make for a friend who loves felines."

  1. To see how to make this bracelet, please watch the video: How to Make a Metal Stamped Cuff Bracelet with ImpressArt Tools.
  2. In the video you will see how to make a similar bracelet from start to finish including how to metal stamp your bracelet, add the extra details, color in the impressions, and bend the bracelet blank into a cuff shape.
  3. The lettering for this bracelet is smaller and closer together then the one shown in the video. A tip is to write your phrase directly onto the bracelet sticker guide. For this one I placed one letter for every notch on the guide and skipped just one notch between words.
  4. After you have stamped your letters, randomly stamp your sitting cat and hearts. Next fill in all the impressions with the stamp enamel, making sure to wipe away excess with a paper towel. Then the final step is to bend the cuff into shape with the bracelet bending tool.
