Hi today I am going to share with you a quick and easy project to use with your Cricut machine, Faux Leather earrings. They are very simple and quick to make and they make fantastic gifts. You can make this on the explore or maker machines as you only need the fine point blade.
You will see links in this project which I will get commission for if you make a purchase using them. This commission helps me keep making projects to share with you all. The ideas and thoughts of the products I share are my own.
Here is a look at the final product of today’s project.
If you want to recreate these at home you will need the following items
- Faux leather in two contrasting colours of your choice
- Earrings and jump rings
- Wood Earrings SVG file
I prefer to use Cricut Faux Leather for this as it is light weight and is comfortable for those wearing them. If you do not want to use two different Faux Leathers you can do the top layer with Iron on for a similar look.
The file Wood Earrings SVG comes with 48 designs and a commercial license. The commercial license means that you are able to sell anything that you make using the SVGs.
To begin this project you will need to upload the design of your choice into Design Space and add the design onto your canvas. Ensure that you have two on your canvas as one will become your back layer. Select one of the images and select the Contour button from the bottom right hand corner of your screen. You want to hide all contours except the top circle which you need to put the jump ring through.
To cut the earrings you will need to place the Faux Leather face down on your Cricut Standard grip mat. For this particular project you do not need to mirror your image as this item is symmetrical. However I still do choose to mirror more for me to be in the habit so that I do not forget for a project that requires it.
From the project mat screen choose to make 2 project copies (to make a pair) or as many as you need. Ensure you have the fine point blade inserted and for the explores turn your dial to custom and then choose Faux Leather (Paper Thin). For Makers choose Faux leather (Paper Thin) from the materials screen. Once they are cut you then add then thread the jump ring through the hole and then attach to the earring.
I hope you like this project and let me know if you gave this project a try.
Thank you for visiting and Happy Paper crafting
