Chipboard Halloween Earrings
Hello crafty friends! Lauren here, sharing a few pairs of Halloween earrings that I made with some of the Brutus Monroe laser cut chipboard pieces!
The earrings are big and gaudy and not everyone's stye, but it's Halloween! Plus I'm a speech therapist in the schools and a mom to twin 5-year-old girls, and all the kids enjoy it when I go all out for holidays! Jewelry is the best way to be festive while still being able to dress appropriately for work!
For the first pair, I used the "skulls" and "spider web" laser cut chipboard strips. I cut the skulls and the spiderwebs off the strip and coated them both with embossing ink by squishing the pad down on the top. I embossed the skulls with two layers of Alabaster EP and the spider webs with 2 layers of Raven Sparkle EP. I took white paper flowers and sprayed them several times with Aubergine Surface Spray to turn them purple. I used a little piece of foam to dab embossing ink into the center, and heat embossed it with gold. Finally I glued little gems to the skulls and assembled the earrings.
For this next pair, I repeated the heat embossing process with two layers of Alabaster EP on two ghosts that I cut off a chipboard strip. I had some extra tassels in my stash, so I attached them to the bottom. Simple!
For this last pair, I used two pumpkins from the Jack-o-Lanterns laser cut strip, and I coated them with DecoFoil transfer gel. When it was dry, I ran it through the laminator with the Orange Sketch foil! I attached purple tassels to the bottom and they were ready. Easy peasy!
