It’s Nancy back with a fun new project!
Today I’m sharing a tutorial on how I made these super cute Fall earrings,
using some fabulous files from the shop.
Here are my earrings:
Aren’t they super cute?
I chose some images that would suit the approaching Fall season.
However, you can do the same thing with any of the fun clipart images in the shop.
These could be totally customized and personalized gifts for all your friends!
Definitely affordable as well!
Here’s how I made them:
I began by choosing my images.
Then I decided on the size I wanted them.
The sunflowers are sized at 1″, and the coffee cups are at 1 1/4″.
I decided I wanted three layers of cardstock for my earrings.
That gives it some nice weight and substance.
Since I’m making dangling earrings, I wanted the image on the back too.
You don’t want white cardstock showing every time you move your head, right?
Due to the nature of various designs,
the cut lines don’t always line up perfectly when you turn them around.
So what I did was I flipped two images horizontally.
So here’s the run-down:
Size six sunflowers at 1″, flip two horizontally.
Size six coffee cups at 1 1/4″, flip two horizontally.
I added all of them to my canvas and used the print/cut feature.
If you look closely, you can pick out the flipped images.
Here are all the images printed and cut out.
I also cut two fabulous cards from the Earring Display Cards SVG File.
The one on the left I sized at 4″, and the one on the right is sized at 4 1/2″.
From my stash, I grabbed 4 fish hook earring wires, and 4 jump rings.
You could just punch a hole and add the jump ring
but I decided that I would add a small eyelet to the top of each one.
Then it’s just a matter of adding the earring wire and the jump rings.
Here you have the finished sunflowers:
Here’s a closer look at the coffee cups:
Cute, right?…and so much fun to make!
Head on over to the shop and see which images inspire you.
There are so many creative possibilities with something like this!
If you want some sparkle, you can add glitter, stickles, or beads.
If you want some shine, you can coat it with glossy accents.
Experiment and have some fun! :o)
