Five minutes and youve got some pretty flashy footwear! I like to wear just one cuff...kind of like Michael Jacksons glove. :)
Vintage collars vary. Some sheer, some crocheted and so on and so forth. Each different kind will make a different type of boot cuff. Some can simply be tied on, some need ribbon woven through, and some need snaps!
Look at this pretty little thing! The only cutting involved is clipping off the tab at each end of the cuff.
Agdding the smaps is a snap! I added two snaps so the collar would overlap to create more interest!
Another peak at what was done!
When youre done snap it on your boot and act sassy! Yee haw!

As most of you know I am a big fan of the cowboy boots. I am forever looking for creative and original ideas to set my boots apart from others. This idea struck me as quick, easy, and yes, original. Vintage women's collars  are very pretty, but fairly useless in today's world. Thhis idea gives them reason to live on...at least for me!


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

I love those little touches that make a big look!

georgiamoon writes: Sue, I will take this idea and run with it...I just bought my Wyoming Cowboy boots here yesterday. You can't go home without a pair!! I have just the thing to try, once I get home...unless I find something here, which is not so likely as there are not many shops here and it has already started snowing.
Great Idea to add a feminine touch to your boots!
