Box of Earrings

Today I'm sharing something a little bit different - a box of handmade earrings!

I created the earrings by stamping a butterfly from the For The Love Of Stamps Butterfly Wishes stamp set twice onto Shrinkies clear shrink plastic (I used black StazOn to stamp with). I coloured in the butterflies (on the reverse) and cut them out, punching a hole just above the image and cutting round that to create a little loop. I then baked them in the oven so they shrunk down. Once cooled, I added some earring findings.

I created the box out of Adorable Scorable matt-tastic card, adding another piece of card into the box with 2 holes punched in for the earrings to hang from. I die-cut the aperture into the box lid using one of the dies from Hunkydory's Beautiful Butterflies die set and added acetate behind.

I will be entering this one into the following challenges:
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #81 anything goes
Creatalicious #138 anything goes with optional add a sentiment
Crafter's Castle #5 anything goes with option to share a favourite technique


  1. Wow....beautiful earrings!!! You did a wonderful job and I would have never guessed they were shrinky dinks. A few years ago I was playing with that stuff and now you have inspired me to experiment again (I have plenty in my craftroom still). I love the box too. Thank you so much for entering our challenge at Crafter's Castle this month....good luck :)
