DIY grommet cuff


1. Create your grommet design, by experimenting with placement of grommets on the cuff. With a ruler, double-check that your design is centered on your cuff, in length and width.

2. Without disturbing the grommet design, carefully make a dot with marker inside the center of each grommet hole.

3. Set your grommets aside. Take the leather punch and make a hole where each ink dot is. Be sure the size of the punch hole coordinates with your grommet size.

4. Now that your design is punched out, push a grommet through each hole. (The image above is how the front and back should look.)
