Please take a moment to vote for this tutorial while you're here! These are super cute made with paper punches... imagine how great they could be made with an Epilog laser cutter!!
Step 1: What you'll need
ï¼ A drink can
ï¼ A paper punch- Any shape you like will work. If your shape is solid, without any holes in the interior design, you will also need a small hole punch. (For the butterfly earrings, I used the EK Success Butterfly Layering Punch. For the 'Please Recycle' Earrings, I used a 1” and ½” circle)
ï¼ A sharp pair of scissors
ï¼ A small pair of pliers
ï¼ A few beads… I prefer teardrop shape, which I find easier to wrap with wire, but use whatever you fancy.
ï¼ Jewelry wire. It just has to be thin enough to fit through your beads. I used 24 gauge wire in this demonstration.
ï¼ Earring hook findings
Optional tools for extra fanciness:
ï¼ An embossing machine and embossing folder
ï¼ Alcohol inks
ï¼ Felt stamper
