Stampin' Up!® Embellishment Earrings and gift box

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator

Hi Everyone and thank you for joining me today. I am bringing you an exciting project today, because Stampin' Up! products are so beautiful I decided to make some earrings. I simply added an embellishment to an earring hook wire and that was it almost instant earrings. I bought the earring hooks from Amazon, they are silver plated and cost 90p for 100, (so less than 2p per pair) so really inexpensive. You can make 12 pairs of earrings from the embellishment pack, which costs £7.25, so 60p for 2. Total cost of earrings 62p!

Stampin' Up!® Embellishment Earrings and gift box

Making the 2x2x1 gift box

  • Fresh Floral DSP 7" x 4"
  • Score on long side @ 1" - 3" - 4" - 6"
  • Score on short side @ 1" & 3"
  • Make gift box up like a pizza style box
  • Cut up all the score lines on the long side up to the first score line
  • Cut a notch in the square flaps
  • Apply glue to these flaps and form a box and a lid
  • Using a 1/2" circle punch made a thumb hole

Box insert

  • Whisper White cardstock 3 3/8" x 3 3/8"
  • Score @ 3/4" on all 4 sides
  • I used my Crop-a-dile to make 2 holes for the earrings

Making the earrings

  • This could not be simpler
  • I just added a earring hook to the embellishment!
  • For the leaf I added it directly to the hook
  • For the Daisy I attached a ring first

  • Punched using the 1 1/8" scallop circle punch 
  • Punch circle to mat this using the 1 1/4" circle punch OR the smallest Stitched Circle Framlit

  1. Amazing Gez, I love the earrings they are beautiful and would certainly remind me of that really special, well-loved stamp/die/DSP suite that I fell in love with as soon as I opened the SU Spring/Summer catalogue. Thank you for sharing. :O)

  2. Thank you Lorraine, I love this suite so much as well and yes wearing the embellishments makes me smile and those who I have gifted them to have loved them :-)
