Refashion old earrings into new with the Cuttlebug

I have a stash of mismatched earrings because I have, inevitably, lost one of the pair. Now I make a matching set with the ear wires and the Cuttlebug.

Here’s how:

  1. Pull the ear wires from an old pair of earrings or match up two wires from single earrings.
  2. Run tin you buy at a hobby shop through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder. The one I used is the Victoria Emboss folder
  3. Using tin snips or utility scissors, cut two squares the same size
  4. Pop a hole in the top with a punch and use a pair of pinking sheers to give it the zig-zag bottom
  5. Run the ear wire through the little hole in the tin and close the hole

It’s that easy!
