[Make Your Mark DIY] 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!
