Custom Cufflinks for Him & Her

by Andrea on November 17, 2011

Are you looking for a unique, inexpensive, and easy gift to give over the holidays?  Make your own cufflinks.  A few Christmases ago, I took a couple of picks from one of Brian’s favorite musicians and added them to a pair of cufflinks from Goodwill.  You’d never know that they were ‘Best Man’ cufflinks prior to my upcycle.

Brian was pretty tickled with this gift.  I also have a french cuff dress shirt and decided to make a pair of my very own.  Now the possibilities of what you can glue onto a cufflink are fairly limitless (charm, guitar pick, custom image, coin, broken earring, crocheted flower, or anything else you want).  I was inspired by Ambrosia Girl’s mini Polaroid magnets that floated along the blog world several months ago.  It turns out that those were inspired by How About Orange’s mini glazed Pantone paint chips.  I love How About Orange, and I love Pantone everything, so I figured this was a sign.

I decided to create a glazed suitcase and globe for my set to remind me of all the traveling I have left to do.  I dug up Dazzle Tac jewelry glue from my first cufflink project.  (Don’t you just love finding the supplies you need at home?)  Here are my supplies, including the latest pair of $3.99 cufflinks from Goodwill.

Just dab a bit of glue on your item and attach it to your cufflinks.  Let this dry for several hours and voila!  Cufflinks!  Pop them into a jewelry box, and you have a quick and easy gift.  If you are gluing an item that you already have, like my picks, this is a five minute project with a few hours to let the glue dry.

Since I wanted to create these glazed items, that whole process took a bit longer.  I followed the directions on How About Orange.  My local JoAnn’s didn’t have Aleene’s Paper Glaze, as used by How About Orange, so I substituted Mod Podge’s Dimensional Magic. Like Ambrosia Girl, I found that adding the glaze to my images made the colors run.  Since How About Orange was using something that was printed, she didn’t have this problem.  If you use your home inkjet printer, you’ll also have runny colors.  I quickly solved this problem by adding a thin coat of modge podge to my image.  Once dry, I then added my glaze and let it dry overnight.

Happy crafting!

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to
.net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and
am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I
can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

I drop a comment whenever I like a article on a site or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.
Usually it’s triggered by the passion communicated in the post I looked at.
And on this post Custom Cufflinks for Him & Her.
I was excited enough to drop a thought :-) I actually do have 2
questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it just
me or does it seem like a few of these remarks look like left by brain dead folks?
:-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I’d like to follow you.
Could you make a list every one of all your communal pages like your twitter feed,

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
