I love to make jewelry with paper! If you’re not new around these parts, you’ve probably already noticed that about me. Scrapbook paper is so fun and versatile – I just can’t get enough of it. I always save my scraps from bigger projects so I can come up with smaller projects like these. I’ve made these Glass Paper Cabochon Pendants, my DIY Washer Pendants, and now these cute and colorful paper stud earrings and I can’t wait to show you how!
You’ll find a complete list of materials listed below the video. If you are on a mobile device or are otherwise unable to view the embedded video, click to watch> DIY Paper Stud Earrings Tutorial <on YouTube.
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
• cardboard or paperboard (from the back of a notepad is perfect)
• scrapbook paper
• rubber cement
• paper punch (I’m using a 1/2″ round hole punch – I misspoke in the video)
• Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
• nail file (or sandpaper)
• earring post findings + post backs (sometimes sold separately)
• gummy eraser, modeling clay, etc. (something soft to stick the earrings into while you work)
I forgot to mention this in the video, but it’s a good idea to wait at least 24 hours before wearing your new earrings or handling them too much. This is for both the glue holding on the post and the Mod Podge on top – even though they are dry to the touch they take a while to fully cure (like nail polish).
