DIY: Earring Holder Cards

12 Sep

I needed to come up with a way to display my earrings for Made in Mogotes, something a bit different, something colorful. This is what I did:

1. Set up a table in Word with squares about 3.5 inches long by 2.5 inches wide.

2. Find a photo, import into Word, make 50% transparent then copy and paste into each square. (Mine is a photo of parents in Colombia, but it didn’t show up very well in the photos)

3. Write business name and website on the bottom of each square.

4. Print cards and cut with a paper cutter so the edges are perfect.

5. Use different colored scrapbook paper and hot glue the printed cards to a piece that matches the pair of earrings.

6. Trim the edges so you can see a slice of the scrapbook paper behind the cards.

7. Poke pin-sized holes at the top of each card.

8. Punch a hole in the middle with a hole punch for hanging.

9. Insert earrings.

10. Admire.

Here’s what I came up with. Apologies for the photo quality. I took them at night with bad lighting and a flash would have left more glare on the earrings themselves since they are varnished, but you get the idea!

What do you think?
