How To Make Faux Leather Earrings

Making earrings with your personal die cutting machine is a current hot topic in crafting. I've done it before [see post here], but these leaf-like earrings are my newest design. This version of earrings was made using The Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect. It really made making them and attaching the layers together easy. The tacky glue dries quickly but leaves enough time to maneuver the position of the layers.

Once glued and in place, I used a tile to weight the layered faux leather down.
Let dry overnight.
 


I used a T-pin to poke a hole in the faux leather and
attached a jump ring and earring wire.
