I’ve been doing a lot of crafting and sewing and wedding planning, but very little blogging. But I’ve something to share today. This is a very easy craft, but I think it turned out really well.
Basically, I bought blank earring studs and E6000 adhesive and made earrings. Not difficult. But I had so much fun going through my button jars to find pairs that would work as a set.
I think the real crafty-ness comes in the making of the little cards. I used what I had on hand, so just cut up a cereal box and poked holes in with a pin for the earrings to go through.
For this pair, I glued stone beads on the blanks studs. However, I didn’t like the look of the bead holes, so I glued small silver beads in them. I was originally going to write “You Rock” after the earrings, but then realized the earrings themselves could fill in for the o’s! So now there’s a nice little reminder/self-esteem boost to go with the earrings 🙂
Sometimes a simple craft can bring as much joy as a challenging one!
