STUDS WITH STYLE!

i got some earrings as gifts for my girlie girls...only problem...all 8 pairs came in one box...so...had to figure out some creative packaging...i've been eyeing up the cameo-ish cuts on the forever young cart...and thought they'd be perfect!...how great would these be for bridesmaids?...or anybody!...

now for the how to!...using the emblem creative feature i cut at 5 1/2" inches...for the girlie head i also cut a chipboard layer along with the cardstock...there's no shadow for the emblem feature...so i just cut the base 1/4" inch bigger...which made it 5 3/4" inches...also cut a chipboard layer for that one too...then...i figured out where her ears would be and punch holes...put the earrings in and added a bow!...

 

but...i needed to get some space in between the silhouette and base...so went to my box of random supplies and found 1/2" inch foam...cut a little square and adhered to the back of the head...cut a tiny little piece and did the same thing at the base...

 

here's one that's a little bit more casual...i found these adorable ant earrings and had to pair 'em up with a picnic blanket-ish pattern...punch two holes and the top and added a satin ribbon piece...aren't they ench"ant"ing?...added note...she flinched a bit when i went to pierce her ears...that's why one's a bit off!...lol...

LOVE this.. that is the cutest thing. I bet that if people who did shows and put their original creations on these they would sell twice as fast. You are so creative. i am guessing this is your full time job creating???
