I'm finally back! Last week hubs had a week of vacation, which was awesome since being a resident he hardly even gets weekends off. (Seriously, it's so rare to have a whole weekend off they refer to it as a "Golden Weekend" when a resident has both a Saturday and Sunday off.) First, my parents were in town for a few days, then hubs and I took a much needed break from New York and headed to a cute little town in Pennsylvania for a few days, and finally the day after we got back his dad and stepmom came to visit, along with hubby's brother and his wife! A great, but super busy week!
I came up with these cute little paper earrings while impatiently waiting for hub's week off to arrive. I've been wanting to come up with a good stacked paper jewelry idea for a while, so when I saw a pair of arrow shaped enamel earrings on Pinterest I thought that would be perfect!
You will need:
1 sheet of cardstock to cut arrow shapes (you can use my template)
1 set of earring posts with backs
Glue pen or white glue (I used a ballpoint-tip glue pen from Martha Stewart Crafts - I got it at Michaels)
Aleene's Paper Glaze (or something similar)
Scissors and/or ruler and x-acto
You can use my arrow template (click here to get it) or make your own. My arrows are 1/2 inch wide. There is probably a better way to do this (where the arrows don't have color printed on the back), but I couldn't figure out how. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them!
