|Handmade Glittery Paper Earrings|
This is a very easy project and you do not need to have prior experience with mixing resin. Just follow the instructions on the package. Jewelry making resin is available for under 20 dollars at Hobby Lobby or online. You will need to know some basic jewelry making techniques to assemble the earrings.
|Simple But Fun Handmade Jewelry|
-EZ Cast or Ice brand jewelry resin
-thick card stock paper
-1/16th hole punch
-ear wire findings
-basic jewelry making pliers set
-loose craft glitter (I used Martha Stewart brand)
|Teal Loose Glitter|
Mix resin according to package instructions. This takes about 2 mins. Use the resin in a project of your liking, such as pendants or cabochons. Take the leftover resin from your project and stir in loose glitter until you achieve the desired shade and uniform thickness. Please note, you have 15 mins working time with resin until it starts to harden, so move quickly.
Pour the glitter resin mixture onto a thick sheet of flat card stock. It will self level and spread out. Make sure to leave a few inches of room for the resin to spread. If you have a lot of mixture, make multiple sheets.
Allow 48 hours for the resin to harden.
|Cutting the Resin Coated Paper|
Using scissors, cut the resin sheet into desired shapes.
Using a 1/16th inch hole punch, put a hole in the top of each shape for a jump ring.
Assemble the jump ring and ear wire finding and you are done!
