Quick Craft: Easy Leather Cuffs, Plus a Give-Away!

This craft is so easy some of you will probably be rolling your eyes at me, but I want to show all those "non-crafty" types out there how simple it is to make awesome bangle cuffs with nothing more than a hammer, some snaps, and an old belt.

First, you need an old belt. Preferably one with a pretty design on it, like this:

I grabbed this at a GoodWill last week for a dollar. The orange and blue flowers caught my eye - of course.

The belt had two embroidered patches on it that just happened to be the exact length needed for a cuff bracelet, so I used one of my other cuffs for a template and cut out each section:

If you don't have a template, just round the edges however you like. (You could leave them square, but I find the edges tend to scratch a bit if you do.)

Now all you need is the $8 "Anorak Snap Setting Tool" from the craft store (like this), some snaps, and a hammer.

First you use the tiny little tube to punch a hole:

And then follow the instructions on the package to set the snap ends:

It worked out for these that the snap ended up right in the middle of the green flower on the end. Nifty, right?

You're not quite done yet, though: next you need to seal the cut edges - especially if the belt you use isn't real leather, like this one. The synthetic stuff is made up of layers which will quickly start to peel apart.

I used a simple white craft glue, but I think you could also a vinyl glue or clear fabric glue:

Once the glue dries you can either paint it with a matching color, or color it in with a matching Sharpie marker. I tried both ways on these, and found the paint was a little too light and too matte (ideally you'll want to use a satin or semigloss paint), while the Sharpie one is glossier and a bit darker than the leather. Here's the painted one:

It's not bad, but John says the Sharpie one looks better, so that's the one I'm going to give away.

But first, a couple more beauty shots:

These two cuff bracelets are virtually identical, so whoever wins my extra one will automatically become my bestie. FAIR WARNING.

  1. Movie Quote? That I can do... especially for a CUTE Bracelet.

    "As you wish" from the Princess Bride, mostly because it is what my Husband has always said to me... and I had no idea why... until I watched the movie (Which just so happens to be his favourite.)

  2. Mostly everything from The Princess Bride or Monty Python and the Holy Grail. :)

    But my all time favorite movie quote is from Harry Potter and Deathly Hallow pt 2 (I don't think the exact quote is in the book, so.)

    "Words are our most inexhaustible form of magic."

    aaaaaaaand that's why I love reading. :D

  3. "No more rhyming now, I mean it!"
    "Anybody want a peanut?"

  4. My all time favorite movie is Moulin Rouge so I always put my favorite quote as: "The greatest thing I have ever learned, is just to love and be loved in return." :)

    And The Epbot Facebook page link didn't work for me. :(

  5. Can I just be your bestie anyway? I really need to get to a Con...must meet more Geeky girls.
    "I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow." GWTW

  6. "Do or do not, there is no try."

    I say it to my kids all the time!

  7. Movie quote: I'm shocked, SHOCKED to find out that gambling is going on in here! (Man hands him his winnings) Oh, thank you very much. EVERYONE OUT!


  8. So, so pretty!!! I'm redecorating my living room right now in the blue/coral colors right now. As for the quote..."I picked the wrong week to stop drinking" - my all time favorite movie - Airplane!

  9. Very cute!
    Favorite movie quote:
    "You know what the boys of the monty python say... nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!" - Sliding Glass Doors


    I use that in conversation multiple times a week, no joke :)

  11. E-SCAP-E! Hey! You know that's spelled just like escape!


  12. "Where you at, Desmondo?"

    It's my favorite only because it's my husband's and my way of asking when the other will be home. Sentimental value and all. :)

    The cuffs are gorgeous! I WANT TO BE YOUR BESTIE! We already have matching Chucks...

  13. "Sweet dancing Jehovah! I've punctured my brain." Dr. Kelso - Scrubs

    Right, so not a movie quote, but definitely my most-quoted quote.

    Jenn T.

  14. The first quote to come to mind was, "Honey, where's my super suit?" It may not be my favorite, but it is the one I most want an opportunity to say.

    "Westley and I are joined by the bonds of love. And you cannot track that, not with a thousand bloodhounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords. And when I say you are a coward, it is only because you are the slimiest weakling ever to crawl the earth!"

For my power is as strong as yours, and my kingdom as great.

    I'm Anne, btw!

  36. Ooohhh Yay! Thanks! I have wayyyy to many fav. movie quotes to pick a favorite, but here are several...anything for a chance to be your bestie!!! lol ;D

    From the Santa Clause, when Scott Calvin tries to defend himself to his ex-wife re: the pj's from the 'waitress' or Elf, Judy:

    "I don't even wear pyjamas! Normally I sleep naked. Buck naked.
    [neighbors walking by] Ha! Morning, Mrs McGloin. Mary Catherine."

    Also, How to Train Your Dragon is basically full of quotable things, such as "Da-da-duh, we're dead." and "Thank you for nothing, you useless reptile."

    Also, oldie but goodie, from baby's day out,
    "The baby isn't sleeping, the baby's on the ROOF." haha I don't know why, it's just a whole lot funnier in context, as well as the rendition of "Mary had a little lamb/took her lamb to work one day/Mary lost her job" right before that...harhar

    And everything pixar, eg. "Just keep swimming" "You are a sad, strange little man, and you have my pitty" and "I can still hear her LITTLE VOICE!" never gets old!

  37. My name's Amy Dyer, and of course I follow you on Facebook!
    "Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious."

  38. "You want a slinky dress? I can buy you a slinky dress. Captain, can I have money for a slinky dress?"

    Ah, favorite guy. :)

  39. I absolutely LOVE cuff bracelets! OK, so my name is Jenn and my favorite movie quote is from Scuttle in The Little Mermaid: "Just a little twirl here and a yank there and VIOLA, you've got an aesthetically pleasing configuration of hair that human go nuts over!"

  40. My name is Julie & I'd LOVE that bracelet!!! My favourite movie quote is:
    "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

    I even have it on a t-shirt :)

  41. My favorite movie quote works best in context of the movie, but I always choke up when I hear or think about it.
    At the end of Return of the King, when Aragorn is being crowned and everyone is bowing down to him and the hobbits bow down as well, and he walks over to them, and says, "My friends, you bow to no one." I'm tearing up now thinking about it!

  42. my name is Amra and my favorite movie quote is from monsters vs aliens - the missing link- Its a little hotter than I remember. Has the Earth gotten warmer? It would be great to know that... that would be a very convenient truth.

  43. "These are not the droids you're looking for." Yes, I went there. Maria xo

  44. Ginamonster

    "Our Parents. They want the best of stuff for us. But right now they've got to do what's right for them. cuz it's their time. THEIR TIME. Up there. Down here it's OUR TIME. It's OUR TIME down here."

    I'm also a big fan of:

    "What's your vector Victor?" but, only when sending text messages to my friend Victor.

  45. "Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil; and I want you to remember this, that love... true love never dies. You remember that, boy. You remember that. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in."

    -Secondhand Lions. One of the best movies ever. <3 Bonnie M.

  46. My name is Molly, and my favorite movie quote is "DRAAAINAAAGE EELIIII!!!!" from There Will Be Blood.

  47. Favourite move quote?

    Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    Love the cuffs, so simple once you see how to do it!

    Claire x

  48. While the bracelets are gorgeous, these things never seem to fit me, so I'm here for the quotes. I'll just go with one that a friend and I threw at each other for a few years, because it EXACTLY fit the amount of money we were trying to give each other in the silliest war imaginable. (Also, because I rarely get quotes just right from memory)


    Or, from the same movie: "Tentacles! N-T! Big difference!" *grin*

  49. Name: Julia Beesley.

    Quote: "Boy, is my face red" --UHF

  50. Jen...."Come on in, I'll put on a pot of burboun" - Rumor Has It

  51. Great idea! I'm glad you showed how to do this with the fake stuff, since leather irritates my wrists (upside: I've had to use a pocket watch since my teens!).

    Name: Danielle Koenig
    Quote: "Don't let them confuse you." (from Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. It comes in handy quite a bit as a self-reminder.)

  52. Name: Stephanie

    Movie Quote: "I love grapes." - Grandma Georgina from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

  53. favorite movie quote, huh? how about a TV quote?

    Doctor Who - The Empty Child - First rule of driving a stealth vehicle, park somewhere memorable!

    P.S. have you ever noticed how really creepy kids can be?

  54. Hi! My name is Alice and I've been a long time lurker. That bracelet is absolutely adorable! I would love to have one. Thanks for doing this.

    Favorite quote: Anything Bones says on star trek that starts out "I;m a doctor, not a..."

    I'm a doctor not an escalator is probably my favorite though.

  55. "O'hana means family. And family means no one gets left behind...or forgotten!"
    Lilo and Stitch

    Kristina Gregg

    I am excited to see all the quotes!

  56. When someone asks you if you're a god, you says, "YES!"

    That is my favorite quote from my husband and my's list of "How to survive a horror movie". Others include:

    You will never cover more ground if you split up.
    Never use yourself as an experimental test subject.
    Never read out loud from any book or diary you find laying around.
    Just stay out of basements and cellars, period.

    Lisa Howard

  57. My name is Carly Barth and my favourite movie quote is from Stardust.

    "But to see the way that mankind loves... You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and... "

  58. I love this tutorial! I have an old belt that will be perfect for this if I can get around to buying the snap put-er-on-er thing! Anyways, my favorite quote is from fantastic Mr. Fox. It's between one of the farmers and someone in his posse:

    Franklin Bean: What are you singing, Petey?
    Petey: Erm... I just kind of made it up as I went along, really.
    Franklin Bean: That's just weak songwriting! You wrote a bad song, Petey!

    For weeks afterwards, my husband and I would go around saying to each other "That's weak songwriting! You wrote a bad song, Petey!" You probably have to see the movie for it to be REALLY funny, but if you haven't seen it yet you should anyways!

  59. That's one pretty cuff!

    "It's the CHICKEN MAN!!"

    (probably inspired by having just watched Toy Story 2 yesterday, but it was the first awesome quote that came to mind.)

  60. Hakuna Matata, bitches!--Jean Girard, Talledaga Nights

  61. Collins: Elizabeth, we've been commanded to multiply and replenish the earth!
    Elizabeth: No. No!

    From the 2003 Mormon, modern-day interpretation of "Pride and Prejudice". It's so bad, it's wonderful. And it has by far the funniest Collins' proposal scene ever.

  62. Mawwiage is what bwings us togewerrr...

  63. Every time I try to talk to someone it's "sorry this" and "forgive me that" and "I'm not worthy"...

  64. This comment has been removed by the author.

  65. Not sure about favorite quote, but one I use frequently is: "I hope you've got a big trunk because I'm puttin' my bike in it." -40 Year Old Virgin

    And there are a bunch of Pulp Fiction quotes that aren't really appropriate.

  66. Super cute cuff!

    Here's one of my favorite movie quotes!

    "What the hell kind of devil-bird chirp at night?"

    Taken out of context it sounds creepy & ominous but it's actually Zooey Deschanel in Failure to Launch - she plays a hilarious character!

  67. The one that seems to get the most use in my house is:

    "What's in the boooooox?"

    "Her pretty head."

    (quote from Se7en)

  68. "Listen, strange women lyin’ in ponds distributin’ swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony." - Alex S

  69. Hi, I'm Anna!

    I love THIS quote because it's also a recipe!
    "Oh, that's simple. You don't need to write that down. It's a cuppa flour, a cuppa sugar, a cuppa fruit cocktail with the juice, mix and bake at three hundred fifty 'til gold and bubbly."

    Someday, I'm going to try that.

  70. That's awesome! Current favorite quote of the moment:
    Dr. Peter Venkman: "Let’s show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown. "

  71. Get in, boys! I'm gonna R-U-N-N-O-F-T!

  72. the first movie quote that comes to mind is "he did WHAT in his cup?!" and for some reason right now i cant think of any of the other million quotes that i quote in a day...

  73. Oh, I can't pick just one quote! I love Chunk's confession monologue in goonies.

    I'm also very into Megamind at the moment too. "it's cold and warm... and dark and light..." from minion and "But why do I feel so... meloncholy?" only with Megamind's pronunciation ;)

    And "Pull the lever Kronk! Wrong leverrrrrrr!" from Emporer's New Groove.

    And "Dear Buddha, please bring me a pony and a plastic rocket... " and pretty much anything else from Serenity of Firefly.

    Seriously though, I love movies and quote them ALL the time, it used to drive my siblings nuts ;) The cuffs are super cute, the belt was a good find!

  74. Jinx and Max, friends forever!

    They're so cute! I'll be your bestie even if I don't win.

  75. Oh, man, they're super cute! I'd like to enter (otherwise my wife will disown me for starting yet another craft...)

    "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

  76. We can be twins?! So cool!! :) I have a lot of favorite movie quotes but right now all I can think of are ones from the movie "Mean Girls" because my friends and I were talking about it the other day. Also, I'm currently taking calculus.. soo... "The limit does not exist! The limit does not exist!" :)

    Sara O

  77. My name is Glenna and my favorite movie quote is "never fear, Brooklyn is here!" from Newsies. It never fails to bring a smile to my face!

  78. so, pretty!!

    I wanted to do a geeky movie line but my favorite isn't.

    Auntie Mame: "LIfe is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving! Live, live, live!"

  79. Elizabeth Wilkerson

    No. We breathe. We pulse. We regenerate. Our hearts beat. Our minds create. Our souls ingest. 37 seconds, well used, is a lifetime.

    We must face tomorrow, whatever it may hold, with determination, joy and bravery

    Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium

  80. "No more rhymes now, I mean it!"
    "Anybody want a peanut?"

  81. That's really cute! I just got a snap-setting thinger, so maybe I'll try this sometime soon!

    And I think my favorite movie quote has to be from "The Sting" -- my No. 1 favorite movie of all time. Henry Gondorf (Paul Newman) has just met Johnny Hooker (Robert Redford). Gondorf has an incredible hangover/still-drunkover and Hooker throws him in the shower and turns the cold water on.

    Gondorf: Glad to meet you, kid, you're a real horse's ass.

    Classic! Lays me out flat laughing every time I see it.

  82. This one always comes up when someone asks me where I see myself in 10 years (Hunt for Red October - a conversation between a Soviet submarine captain and his first officer, on defecting to America):

    "Capt. Vasili Borodin: I will live in Montana. And I will marry a round American woman and raise rabbits, and she will cook them for me. And I will have a pickup truck... maybe even a "recreational vehicle." And drive from state to state. Do they let you do that?
    Captain Ramius: I suppose.
    Capt. Vasili Borodin: No papers?
    Captain Ramius: No papers, state to state.
    Capt. Vasili Borodin: Well then, in winter I will live in... Arizona. Actually, I think I will need two wives.
    Captain Ramius: Oh, at least."

    Love your blog!
    Amanda M

  83. Holy cow that looks easy! I wonder if there's any belts with geeky embroidered designs? Something like Pac-Man eating a bunch of dots.

    Ah, you wanted a movie quote! "Went away? 'I dwell in darkness without you' and it went away?!" - Sorsha from the movie Willow. That one always cracks me up.

  84. Michelle W. from Utah

    "It's got raisins in it, you like raisins."

  85. "Truth hurts. Maybe not as much as jumping on a bicycle with a seat missing, but it hurts."

    The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear- 1991.

  86. "A man in a really nice camper wants to put our song on the radio! Gimme a pan, I'm signing, you're signing, we're all signing!"

    (I swear, "That Thing You Do" is the most quotable movie of all time)

  87. Chelsy J. and my absolute favorite movie quote is "Hakuna matata" because it means no worries :P in fact I love it so much I'm going to get it tattooed on my back in the near future

  88. Suzanne F.

    "Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say Ni at will to old ladies. There is a pestilence upon this land, nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress in this period in history.

  89. Favorite Movie Quote Ever: I'm here to kick *** and chew bubble gum, and I am all out of bubble gum.

  90. Kim Krapf

    John Hammond: All major theme parks have delays. When they opened Disneyland in 1956, nothing worked!

    Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but, John, if The Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists.

    - Jurassic Park :)

  91. A gun rack? A gun rack. I don't even own A gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack. What am I going to do with a gun rack?

  92. Sue Rankin: Gosford Park

    Mary Maceachran: Nobody can stab a corpse and not know it.
    Robert Parks: Really? When was the last time you stabbed a corpse?

  93. "Listen. Do you smell something?" - Thanks. I really like this. -Sarah Flinders

  94. Awesome!! Love this!!

    My quote is: "I put a dollar in I won a car, I put a dollar in I won a car, I put a dollar in I won a car, I put a dollar in I won a car." ~Rusty Griswold in National Lampoon's Vegas Vacation

  95. Well, some people without brains do an awful lot of talking don't they? -Scarecrow from Wizard of Oz. Makes me laugh every time I hear it.

  96. My favourite movie quote has got to be "Laugh it up, fuzzball," just because when I was a kid my brother and I taught our pet budgie to say it. The rest of the family were trying to teach it the boring standard phrases like "who's a pretty boy", so the poor thing ended up getting all mixed up and usually came out with something like "who's a pretty fuzzball" - which was pretty hilarious to a couple of 10 and 6 year olds.

    "He was twitching!"
    "He's twitchin' 'cos he's got my ax *shakes handle* buried *shakes* in His Nervous System!"

    Incidentally, I love your crafts but I dislike brown, so this is entertainment, not entry. Internet loves!

  99. A leather cuff AND we get to be your bestie? Yes, please. :) (And now I sound like a crazy stalker.)

    Favourite movie quote...there are so many. Off the top of my head, "Llama face!" From The Emperor's New Groove.

  100. Such a cute bracelet! My favorite quote (recently) is: "The cynicism you refer to, I acquired the day I discovered I was different from little boys!" Bitter and better in context

  101. did you think I'd be too stupid to know what a ugoogly is?" - Zoolander

    Make me laugh every time :)

  102. "I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft!"

  103. My brain went straight to The Princess Bride, and "As you wish."

    Three simple, small words, yet they convey a world of meaning.

  104. The cuffs are so pretty! I'm Ma'ayan, and my favorite movie quote is "How dare anybody tell me what I should look like, or what I should be, when there's so much more to me than just my weight!" from Real Women Have Curves.

  105. I almost never can choose a favorite movie or a favorite quote, but today, the first that comes to mind is, "I know you can be overwhelmed, and I know you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?" "I think you can in Europe."

    And I'll definitely be looking for cheapy belts from now on!

  106. Favorite movie quote, that I use all the time "Two dollars!"

  115. What a pretty bracelet!

  122. Just another movie quote for you from 17 again- a movie i thought would suck but i actually loved-Ned Freedman: It's a classic transformation story. Are you now or have you ever been a Norse God, Vampire, or Time Traveling Cyborg?
    Mike O' Donnell: I have known you since what, first grade? I think that maybe I would have told you!
    Ned Freedman: Vampire wouldn't tell, Cyborg wouldn't know. lol annnnndddd ....Ned Freedman: We have to go shopping, your shirt is bedazzled.
    Mike O' Donnell: Bedazzled with rhinestones! ha ha ah its funny

  123. "We appear to have gone on holiday by accident!" - Withnail and I! :D I love that film! Your bracelet is very cute! :)

  125. I would love to win this bracelet since you happened to pick my birthday for your awesome contest!!

    Movie quote: "Nobody puts Baby in a corner."

  126. Lovely! I now know what tool to get with my next Michael's 40% off coupon.

    Favorite movie quote: "If he gets up, we'll all get up! It'll be anarchy!" from The Breakfast Club.

    I teach high school, and I reference the movie all the time; the kids don't get my references, which I find both sad and hilarious.

  127. My favorite movie quote is from Willy Wonka:

    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.

  128. Favorite recent movie quote: "Puny God" - Hulk from the Avengers.

    And hmm.... Favorite movie quote of all time.... Well, this is ONE of my favorites: "LIGHT THE LAMP, NOT THE RAT, LIGHT THE LAMP, NOT THE RAT! " -Rizzo the Rat from The Muppet Christmas Carol.

    I love the bracelet! I would be giddy for at least a year if I received a package from you Jen!

  129. "I can see, I can see...nope, I was wrong" Robin Hood Men In Tights. I know it shouldn't be funny... But I laugh every single time I watch it!

  130. hi, i'm becky and i would love to rock this phenomenal cuff! you really make it look easy to make, but i'd rather stick with winning and being your new long distance bff.

    "sure, rocks friends." - ludo in the labyrinth

    "are you a good witch or a bad witch?" - glinda in the wizard of oz

    and of course, "as you wish." (my heart still skips a beat at that one.)

  131. Love the cuff, the belt was an awesome find.

    Struggling with a movie quote, which is stupid, because we do movie quotes a lot round here. "BANANA!" gets shouted a lot when we go to the supermarket

  132. So, this is my favorite non Princess Bride quote, because every line of TPB is my favorite line.

    "Imagine you’re a deer. You’re prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water… BAM! A f***ing bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f*** what kind of pants the son of a b**** who shot you was wearing?"

  133. Love it!
    "There is no cure for bullet in the brain."

  134. Pretty!!

    For your entertainment:
    "Also, I can kill you with my brain."

    And shameless plug for you to pick me:
    You won't have to ship the bracelet when you pick me. You could just give it to me when we meet up at Disney next month! *grin*

  139. A River Runs Through It, "chicken in the car, car won't go, that's how you spell Chicago." Love it. It's so bizarre. I saw it all the time. No one ever gets it though.

    Rocky Horror Picture Show, "Master, dinner is prepared! " Great line to yell out when dinner is ready.

  140. I'm Madi, and I would very much love to be your automatic bestie due to our shared interests in Ghostbusters, Muppets, Disney, and crafts
    My favorite movie quote would have to be "thank you dear lord baby Jesus for my red hot smokin wife Carly, and my two sons Walker, and Texas Ranger" (that's paraphrased a bit, I don't know the exact quote) from Talladega Night the Ballad of Ricky Bobby. I just love the whole prayer scene, it's hilarious

    Ken: "Pam Shortt's broken both her legs,and I want to dance with you."

    Kylie: "That was unexpected..."
    -Strictly Ballroom

  144. How awesome! I never would have thought of that. My favorite quote is "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries."

  145. "...right at that moment, an unconscious Argentinian fell through my roof."

    My all time favorite movie quote from my all time favorite movie, Moulin Rouge!

  146. I hope you have seen this movie, 'cause if you haven't you HAVE to rectify that ASAP! From Murder By Death:
    "conversation like television set on honeymoon: unnecessary!"

  147. "Eating greens, it is a treat. It makes long ears, and great big feet ... but it sure is awful stuff to eat." (aside) "I made the last part up myself"

  150. Name: Sharon Rutledge

    Favorite Movie Quote: "Malvert can have punch, Malvert help make punch. Malvert pee red!" - Student Bodies

    I saw your soda bottle jewelry stand featured on yesterday, in an article titled "94 Upcycling Ideas That Will Blow Your Mind."

  151. Whoa so cool. I'm already imagining all kind of steampunk wrist bags and wand holders.

    Anyway, my favourite movie quote is "After all this time?" "Always."
    Because that is when almost everyone in the theatre started audibly sobbing. I still tear up a little...

  152. My favourite movie quote is from Casablanca when Renault has been forced to shut down Rick's.

    Renault:"I am shocked, shocked to find there is gambling going on here"

    Staff: "Your winnings sir"

  153. I have so many! All I can think of now (besides pretty much anything from Princess Bride) is "There's no place like home!" :)

  154. Oh, I like the snarky friend from Brigadoon: "Can you think of one good reason why I, a strange man, should be interested in proposing to you, a mighty strange woman, and at this hour of the day?"

    It's right up there with "It's not the heat, it's the humanity."

    The Interweb informs me his name is Jeff Douglas.

  155. Favorite movie quote? That's easy!

    "I'm a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar." I love me some Serenity, especially Wash.

  156. "Never fear, Brooklyn is here" -Newsies

    Adorable bracelet!

  157. My current favorite quote is from my new favorite movie Pitch Perfect that I saw on Monday.

    "Nothing makes a girl feel more like a woman than a man who sings like a boy."


  158. "This is where the fish live."

    I may spend too much time watching MST3K on Netflix.

  159. Sarah K.

    "Just love me, fear me, do as I say, and I will be your slave"

  160. I'm not using a Dr. Horrible quote because I'm trying to win you over. I'm using it because it's stuck in my head, tempting me to burst into song for the last three hours at work. Which is awkward, because it's "A MAN's gotta do what a MAN's gotta do. Don't plan the plan if you can't follow through. All that matters taking matters into your own hands. Soon I'll control everything--your wish is my command." And so on. Having a whole three part harmony going on in your head is exhausting.

  161. "My mind has an endless capacity for useless information."

    From Playing by Heart, one of my all-time favorites.

  162. I have so many favorites from Harry Potter. Not sure if this is quoted directly in the movie but

    We've all got both light and dark inside of us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are." - Sirius Black

  163. From 'Galaxy Quest,' "Did you guys ever WATCH the show?" or almost anything from 'Young Frankenstein."

    Heather M.

  164. "You gave me *loaded dice*!?" I'm not sure it's my all time fave, but it's my current fave. Lovely cuffs you made!

  165. "Whoa" from The Matrix seems to be the most fitting, because those cuffs make me go Whoa! You rock!

  166. Oooooh. Movie quote?

    "Dear Buddha, please give me a pony..."

    -Cap'n Tightpants

  167. "We don't need a NUG!"
    (GUN, M*A*S*H)

    -Tina Stannert

  168. My favorite movie quote from "The Wedding Date". 'Since he's my stepdad, he's technically not family, more like a hostage.'

  169. "Shiny. Let's be bad guys."

    Can't wait to teach that to my daughter. Once she can speak, that is. Love the site!


  170. "A life lived in fear is a life half lived."

    Strictly Ballroom - best movie ever!!

  171. "We may not always get what we want, we may not get what we need, just so's long as we don't get what we deserve."

    This is from True Colors with John's always been one of my favorites and I use it as a toast when I can!

  172. I don't remember if they mentioned it in the movie, but I'm pretty sure it was in the TV miniseries of Hitchhiker's Guide. "Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is."

  173. Leah Wrightson annnnd my favorite movie quote:

    "All-Go-No-Quit-Big-Nuts Harry Stamper"

    Because who doesn't love Bruce Willis saving the world?

  174. One of my favorite movie quotes is from When Harry Met Sally -

    "When you've found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible"

    It always gives me warm fuzzies :)

  175. I'm going to go with a line that isn't deep, or has a lot of meaning, but makes me smile every time: 'Nice marmot' from The Big Lebowski.

  176. Gah! I don't know if it submitted the previous one, so here goes again. Apologies if it's a repeat.

    "Shiny. Let's be bad guys."

    Can't wait to teach that to my daughter. Once she can speak, that is. Love the site! :)

    Marla aka LadyGunn

  177. "What do they think I am? Dumb or something? Why, I make more money than - than - than Calvin Coolidge! Put together!"

    And pretty much anything else Lina says.

  178. So, Princess Bride is getting a lot of play I've noticed, but the first quote that came to mind is this:

    "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    Useful pretty much every gorram day.


    "Let's go be bad guys."

    'Cause, you know Serenity is shiny.

  179. From the Incredibles;


    Because those bracelets are totally wicked ;)

  180. Love those cuffs! As for the movie quote, gotta have some Ghostbusters love here. "Nobody steps on a church in my town!"

  181. Nick Fury: I don't know about that, but it is powered by the cube. And I'd like to know how Loki used it to turn two of the sharpest men I know into his personal flying monkeys.

    Thor: Monkeys? I do not understand.
    Steve Rogers: I do!

    [Stark rolls his eyes, while Cap looks proud of himself]

    Steve Rogers: I understood that reference.

    - the Avengers
    (a coworker likes to make really obscure plays on names when taking customer orders, so I'm in Cap's shoes a fair bit)

  182. "We are here! You are saved!"

    It's the first that came to mind :-)

  183. Those bracelets are awesome!

    Here's my movie quote, from French Kiss (sung to the tune of I Love Paris):

    "I hate Paris in the springtime, I hate Paris in the fall, I hate Paris in the summer when it sizzles, I hate Paris in the winter when it drizzles. I hate Paris, oh why oh why do I hate Paris? Because my love is there, with his slut girlfriend."

  184. Hmm...most of my favourites are from National Treasure. "It's a big...bluish-green man...with a strange-looking goatee. I'm guessing that's significant!"

    My other favourite movie is Inception.
    "They're looking for the dreamer. Quick, give me a kiss."
    "They're still looking."
    "Well, it was worth a shot."


  185. Movie Quote? There's so many good ones, but one of my favorites has to be:

    President Bennett: "It's the old Potomac two-step, Jack."

    Jack Ryan: "Sorry Mr. President. I don't dance."

    -Clear and Present Danger

  186. "But that's what I like!! Leeetle theengs heeting eeach otheerrr!"

    ~ Napoleon, Time Bandits

  187. "She turned me to a newt."
    "A newt?"
    "It got better!"

  188. those are lovely!

    i don't have an all-time favorite movie quote, but the current one getting tossed around our house (at COMPLETELY inappropriate times, natch) is from baby mama: "i want you to put your baby inside me." tina fey and amy poehler are funny, funny ladies... =)

    as always, thanks for sharing geeky crafty awesomeness and being your adorable, inspiring self!

  189. This is Lydia Koenig. I have a favorite quote from a movie I know you know. "You mean you never even had a Slinky?" "We had part of a Slinky. But I straightened it. " I quote this all the stinkin time.

  190. Goblin king, goblin king, wherever you may be, take this child of mine far away from me!

    Potty training a 3 year old boy, I find myself saying this quite often lately....

  191. Lacey Barrett

    At the end of "You've Got Mail" Meg Ryan says "I wanted it to be you" *sigh* love that movie

  192. Here are a couple of quotes from Road to Eldorado

    You gave me LOADED DICE!?!?


    We're in barrels. That is the extent of my knowledge.

  193. Hi! I'm Jeanna and I just love those!

    It's so hard to pick but I finally chose a quote from one of my favorite Audrey Hepburn movies.

    "No. The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long, you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?"
