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.
I want to personally thank Cricut and ScraPerfect for providing materials for this post. I am a design team member with Cricut and ScraPerfect.

Using a Cricut Maker, I cut the faux letter
cut pieces of faux leather
using The Best Glue Ever
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.
Threading the crystals and finishing off the wirework
to make the finished earrings.
