The Crafty Chica Sugar Skull Patch Cuff!

A few weeks ago Crafty Chica sent me some lovely sugar skull patches from her new product line and I fell in love with them.  I NEEDED to figure out what to do with them because I truly wanted to wear them some how, some way.  On the instructions it said that they might not iron on to leather so I decided to use my gold standard glue, E-6000 and just put them right on the leather and not even worry about whether they could be ironed on!  It worked and I'm so pleased!
My Crafty Chica Sugar Skill Cuff....LOVE IT!
Here's the DIY video! 
 You'll need
Crafty Chica's Sugar Skull Patches OR some patches that you like
Vinyl or leather (enough to make a cuff)
E-6000 glue
Leather punch
1/4" wide ribbon in a color you like
 Make your cuff pattern and trace it on to the leather or vinyl
Mark dots 1/2" apart all the way around 
Punch them out with your leather punch

 Thread the ribbon through the holes all the way aroun
 Secure the ribbon ends with a knot and glue the ends down with E-6000
