Leather butterflies

I have been turning my scrap leather into butterflies:

Here is a cut file (you right click on it to be able to save it as a svg):
Leather butterflies

After printing them I fold them up like this and use a clip to just get the leather in line and make it easier to feed the cord through. I leave it clipped for about 10-15 minutes and then remove the clip and then lace up the butterfly.

Enjoy!

Really unique design. I picture zipper pulls or the ends of hoody strings, maybe.

Thank You for posting the files.

Very nice! I can see them dancing above a flower arrangement. Leather roses maybe?

That is a cool idea! Or shoe laces :slight_smile: You can easily weave them in during the lacing up process.

Gorgeous and indeed so many uses. However, I am really impressed by the wood in the background as well! I would love to see a fancy box made of it!.
