Stampin' Up! for Jewelry?

Hi there! Happy Saturday before Easter! Are you ready with your Easter baskets and colored eggs? I decided against an Easter Basket for my little Tucker. He's the most adorable little Shit Zu/Yorkie mix you have ever seen, but, Gamma and Gampa made him up an Easter basket, so I decided 1 basket was plenty since he has an entire room full of toys already...No, he's not spoiled at all! Anyway, today I wanted to share with you some of the versatility of our products as I know not all crafters want to stamp necessarily, (although, I have no idea why not lol) so, I thought I would show you a really cute idea to make a girly birthday gift, earrings!

These would also make a cute party favor for a girls birthday party. I just picked up some inexpensive "fish hook earring" blanks in the jewelry making supply area of my local Walmart and some "O" rings to attach the fish hooks to the Party Animal Embellishments and with a pair of needle nose pliers, squeezed the "O" rings closed around both pieces. I then punched a 2" circle and stamped the sentiments in Emerald Envy and Pacific Point. I then punched 2 holes using the hand-held 1/8" punch into the center of the 2" circle and using a craft knife, I cut slits from the hole punches to the outside of the 2" circle so that I could slide the fish hooks down into the holes and slipped the entire piece into a 3" x 4" zip lock baggie. Aren't they just too cute? The sentiments happen to be from the coordinating stamp set, Balloon Adventures which happens to be on the retirement list.
I hope you enjoyed today's project. I thought it was cute for something a little different from our normal cardmaking and occassional 3D project. Let me know what you think as I always enjoy your comments and thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate it. Happy Stamping, and Happy Easter to you,
Katrina
