Earrings using Stampin' Up! Products!
Yes, that is right. You can use Stampin' Up! products for jewelry making too! What a great gift these make!
This is day 4 of my Better Business Practices for Stampin' Up!, so check out the other posts too.
Today's ideas are thanks to Debbie N. However, I can't find the particular post where here earrings were found. If you drop by her site, please tell her I sent you.
The first set of earrings were made using the Filigree Brads and Rhinestone brads. I used the large and small flowers from the filigree brads, but changed the brad to the rhinestone brad. I added a jump ring to connect the two flowers, and an earring wire. I trimmed the legs of the brads so they were not very noticeable. Super Easy!!
The second set (the brown ones) were made using the Corduroy Buttons and Brads, which come in Real red and Pretty in Pink for a limited time, as well summer sun, Pumpkin Pie, whisper white, and Chocolate Chip. I used a head pin to create the dangle with the beads. I rolled the legs of the brad so there was a place for a connection. I used a jump ring to attach the earring wire and then a second jump ring to attach the bead dangle. Easy Peasy!!
Finally, I used the Build-a-Brad Kit to make the last earrings. I punched a small flower from the 12x12 Old Olive Designer Paper using the 1/2" hole punch. I placed this on the base of the Build-a-Brad using a small dot of Tombow- Multi Glue. I then added the adhesive backed clear dome top to the brad. I trimmed the legs of the brad to 1/4", rolled the bottom leg up, and tucked it down in the back of the brad. The top leg, I rolled up and attached the loop on a head pin to it. I then added some beads and a earring wire.
Imagine all this using Stampin' Up! materials!
