Trek part 6: Leather Cuff Bracelets

Last night I was dropping off some music at a friends house, and she showed me these cute bracelets she made for her Trek kids.  I was giddy.  She gave me supplies to make my own and I am excited to show you!

For more information on why we are going to Trek, click here.  You can also see tutorials on bonnets, pioneer shirts, padded buckets, and personalized chap stick.


I guess the reason I was so excited to make these is because not only are they rustic and fun, but they have a spiritual thought on them.  My friend Britt chose a scripture reference to put on hers.  But I have had this verse of "How Firm a Foundation" in my mind for weeks as I have thought about the trek.  Fear not, I am with thee.  I plan on using it as a teaching moment tonight (our FIRST NIGHT!!!) I really want these kids to remember that God is with us in our trials!  This will be hard, but with his help, all is possible.

To make, we used some leather scraps.  The thicker one is 6 inches by 3/4 inch.  The thin piece is 10 inches long, and really thin.  We also used a couple of wooden beads.

Before I put these together, I used a little tool Britt loaned me that burns on leather.  I think a thin Sharpie would work, too.  Mine says, "Fear not I am with thee Trek 2012"

Punch 2 holes, one on each side of the thicker piece of leather.  Poke the skinny piece through, add bead and tie knot.  We used a hammer and nail to punch the hole.

These would be awesome to make for girls camp or a family reunion, too.

Because January of 2009, I do not have reflux signs at all
any longer. I've a hiatal hernia and that i misplaced about 25 pounds since January of 2009 (I had been identified in February 2009 with BE). My question is, do I need to have to prevent all of these items without getting any reflux at all. I in fact study a couple of articles or blog posts expressing that coffee and tomatoes actually decrease your possibilities of specific cancers including esophageal, so I started drinking espresso and eating tomatoes once more but I want suggestions on these concerns.

Appreciating the hard work you put into your website and in depth information you provide.
It's nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't

Soo numerous wonderful posts right here. Bottom line is the fact that Hulk has unlimited strength over
superman. Ok, we received that. Wikipedia includes a great
site that displays his strengths. Hulk can lift planets, stop black holes, and so forth.

In a bureaucracy the cream does not usually

drive traffic to their website and if a sale is made through a link
that you created, you make a commission. People are starting to notice
a decrease in their on the market income because the national employment
is affected by the weakening economic market.
