More Jewelry Making

A friend's little girl had her tenth birthday this week so I made her a pair if birthstone earrings. I had just ordered Swarosvki crystal beads so that's what I used. 

Of course for a gift I needed packaging. I made a matchbook style card for the earrings. Using white card stock I folded it in half and cut just a small amount larger that the little plastic bag holding the earrings.

 Next using rubber stamps I stamped the cupcake and Happy Birthday. I staples the little plastic bag in with the open end down so
The earrings could be removed without tearing the card. Then I punched two holes using the hole punch and using ribbon tied a bow to close. 

The gift was a hit with my friend's daughter.

I recently made a couple pairs of earrings for myself.

These are so pretty. I love those Swarofski Crystals and the blue silver combo is one of my favorites. Where are you getting your beads, Judy?
