snowflake charm earrings in an envelobox

img_0563A project to present simple earrings made from snowflake charms in a cute little envelobox.img_0562


materials- bag of snowflake charms (Amazon 50 mixed charms), jump rings, earring wires, square of patterned paper, glue , tissue paper and raffia

equipment – jewellry pliers, crafters companion ultimate pro or score board

method – make the earrings by opening the jump rings (twist don’t pull) and thread on the charm and ear wire before closing the ring again

To make the envelobox take a square of patterned paper and score it across each corner in parallel lines as shown, cut out the intersection. To save the calculations follow the Crafters’ Companion template. Optional round corner and stick the envelope closed.

I wrapped the earrings in tissue to given the envelobox some bulk and then tied it with raffia.

With thanks

imageWhether it is to say  a big thanks or a little one I like to make simple, happy cards and have a few ready for a variety of recipients

I found theses pennant sentiments printed on the back of a ‘pay per box’ carton when tidying my paper stash and couldn’t bear to waste anything, so four quick cards were created by fussy cutting around the pennants and using saved embellishments, craft card bases and docrafts backing papers.

I have glued white paper inserts inside to make the message easier to write and see.
