Handmade earrings from handmade paper

 It is finally Spring, according to the calendar, but we had snow a few days ago! I have no idea why it does that because the next day it is warm enough to melt it all but living in the Midwest, our weather changes constantly.

Today I have earrings to show you. I used scraps of leftover paper to make them. I use my punches shown below...

 And then glued them together using Helmar's Tacky Craft Glue but not before coloring them using my Pitt Pens, I love making jewelry using different elements besides wire and beads.
To make them strong enough to wear, I spread a layer of Glossy Accents onto them and let that layer dry before adding another.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget, you too can make your own handmade paper using the Arnold Grummer paper making kit and directions here.
