and a few supplies.
It seems the most popular earrings are the ones worn by Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper. She introduced the world to the leather leaf earring. They can be made from cork, vinyl or leather...whatever you chose to use. Even if you're not artsy, you can sketch your own templates. They are that easy
I purchased the supplies from Michael's. If you're going to be selling them, I suggest you buy good quality hooks and rings. I used the small pliers I've had for ages, and a leather punch for the holes. You could just use a plastic tac to make the holes in the scrap piece. A permanent marker or oil based paint pen can be used to embellish your earrings. Glue comes in handy, as in my case, I doubled the earring pieces, as I didn't like the unfinished look of the backing.
Leather and cork are expensive so this is an ideal way for using the smaller pieces left over from making your bags and projects. Vinyl works just as well, and has eye appeal.
I made the label in my Picmonkey program, then transferred the label to the Word program copying and pasting until the page was full. I then printed onto sticker sheets. I would suggest those new at this first test the size before printing. The heavy cardboard cards were purchased at Michael's but would be easy to make from heavy card stock.
If you're on a tight budget, I noticed good supply of pliers and other smaller tools in our dollar store the other day. They also had the hooks which are totally affordable. Check You Tube if you're interested in making earrings. They have loads of excellent tutorials, or put leather earrings DIY into your google search.
