Here's my mama and me. 🥰 🥰 🥰 


My mom passed away a week before my 17th birthday.


I started celebrating mother's day for me, instead of feeling sad that she is no longer around.


I know she would love this bracelet!

Supplies Needed for Engraved Leather Bracelet:




Supplies Needed for Engraved Leather Bracelet:  Leather Bracelet Blank xTool M1 10W Deluxe RA2 Pro Simple Design ( I wrote Beauty and paired it with line drawn hibiscus) xTool Creative Space (XCS) free download

Step 1: Design


Begin by opening up the xTool Creative Space software. 


Then import picture files. 


I import png files so the background is removed and the lines are sharp.

Step 2: Line up Bracelet


Set the leather bracelet blank inside the xTool M1 Laser Cutting machine.


I used painters tape to hold it in place.


In future, I wouldn't tape the sides close to the design.


Then the xTool will take a picture and show you on the software exactly where the bracelet is placed.

Then align the designs on the bracelet.

Step 3: Settings


Select the image.


Then set it to "User-defined Material" and have the machine auto measure the thickness.


Then change the Output Power to 45% and the Speed set to 100.

Step 4: Start Process


Once the settings are updated for each of the images imported, select the start button.


Then click the button on the xTool Machine.


Watch the engraving process...at least keep an eye on the laser engraving to prevent any issues.


Engraving leather smells like burning hair, FYI!

That's it!


After the laser process is complete, the bracelet is done!


Remove the bracelet from the machine and enjoy.


It's real leather, so you can dye it or add studs, rhinestones or leather paint.


I keep my leather real natural, so maybe just some neatsfoot oil.

The engraving turned out the perfect darkness.


You can see the issue of lighter lines where the painters tape was in the way of the engraving, so in future, I'll just tape down the edges, not the sides.

Still, it's everything I love.


It's a power mantra, I love the word beauty. 


You pick a power word that you (or your mom) love.

I love being able to quickly whip up a show-stopping gift that has my handmade custom touches to it. 


I just know my mom would love crafting with me.


She was an avid crafter. She worked for Zim's craft store and got all the supplies and had to come up with fun and new ideas for trendy crafts back in the 70's.


She was like Pinterest. She was published in magazines.


I know she would have loved to use the xTool M1 Laser Cutting Machine to create custom crafts.
