Lego Cufflinks

I know that I’m a little late, but I wanted to share what I made Anthony for Father’s Day. 
That Sunday, I posted that we went shopping over the weekend so that he would have more work clothes,
but I was pretty sneaky about convincing him to buy a french cuff shirt so that he would be able to wear these!

LEGO Cuff-links!

I’m sure some of you are making a face right now thinking “who would wear those to work?” 
but it makes more sense when you know that Ant is an Architect. He works in a really fun office,
and these are now the envy of most of his co-workers. 😀
And you’ll love how ridiculously easy they are to make!

I got the backings from a shop on Etsy, and the legos came from the Lego store in a nearby mall. If you’ve never been to a Lego store, they have a wall full of compartments each with a different lego, and you fill a little bucket with whatever you want. (Just like a candy store.) The one we visited didn’t have the pieces we were looking for on the wall, so they actually let us take them from the “play area” for free. The manager was so impressed with the idea that he said I could have any piece I needed as long as I sent him an e-mail of the finished product. How cool is that!?
So Ant’s super cool Father’s Day present cost me only $5 for 6 pairs of cuff-links.
How am I ever gonna be able to top that next year?
For anyone interested in something similar (not just lego) search cuff-links on Etsy.
