Paper Earrings

I've been really wanting some new earrings lately but I haven't been wanting to actually buy some new earrings lately. I've made myself a fair amount of pairs in the past so yesterday, after carving a stamp I made some.

I made them with some heavy card stock, origami paper, envelopes and sealed them up a bunch to make them sturdier. The only thing I don't like is that I had to use some crappy earring hooks because I only had one nice pair. I took the big silver ball off that is usually on those cheaper ones, since I think it just looks kinda awful. 

It's really nice out again today. I have the back door open to the screen and I can hear the neighbor busily doing stuff on the other side of the fence. I hope he starts singing at some point! That's always my favorite.

And hey, here's a good song for a springy day by the super cute Sondre Lerche:

  1. Very cool earrings and good read, thanks for sharing and hope the do well! I'm not so sure about cute, but I truly dig the 60's threads the gals and guys in the background are wearing in the video! Again, thanks for the share.
