Step 1 — Warrior Cuff ¶
STEP 1: Gather your materials. You will need the contents of the project pouch, E6000 glue, and a sharp scissor for cutting the trims. You may also want to set some paper down on your work station because the glue can get a little messy.
Step 2 ¶
STEP 2: Planning out your design. We urge you to plan out your design before you glue it down and try out a variety of combinations.
Skip the imitation leather lining for a more metal-driven look and cut up the gold pearl trim into tiny pieces to create an allover gold studded motif. You can also create different shapes such as crosses, flowers or your initials!
Our instructions will show you how to create the design shown on the box images. But feel free to stray from the instructions and come up with your own.
Step 3 ¶
STEP 3: Measuring and Cutting your Trims. In order to prepare the imitation leather lining, start by pulling the trim along the length of the cuff and cut to size. Cut the remaining trim to the same size so that you have two identical lengths.
Now lay your trims on a flat surface. Using the glue applicator syringe or a cotton swab, apply glue to one side of the length of the trims, on the flat part only. Make sure not to apply glue to the raised part: that will be visible on the border of your bracelet.
Let the glue settle for a few minutes --- this will increase its stickiness and will make attaching it to the bracelet easier. Gently press it into the underside of the bracelet, using the edge of the cuff as the guideline for the raised part of the trim. Press firmly and hold for a minute. Repeat on the other side of the bracelet.
Step 4 ¶
If you want to line the edges of the bracelet with the gold pearl trim, follow the same procedure to pull the trim along the length of the cuff and trim it into two identical lengths. Apply glue to the bracelet in a straight line across the edge and press the trim into it, holding for 30 seconds.

Step 5 ¶
STEP 4: Adding your designs. Now that the foundation of your cuff is complete, use the glue applicator syringe to apple a small amount of glue to the back of each component. Gently press the components onto the bracelet where desired.
Please remember to let the glue fully cure for 24 hours. After that, you will be ready to rock your warrior cuff and show everyone your personal expression through your designs.
