I have been known to do some really crazy things with my Cricut. I love to try materials that you wouldn't think would work. Well, here we go again, this one definitely worked!
As I was walking around my local Joann's finding fun things I thought would work with the Engraving Tip I stumbled upon a pair of earings....Yes, earrings in the Jewelry Department. Stay with me here....
The earrings were cheap! And...I got two, who would have guessed, LOL! I took off the "earring" hardware at the top of the circle. I then added some Scor-tape to the back of the earring to help it stay on the mat.
The image I chose is on one of the Creative Memories cartridges. It has a circle form to it. I used the Center Point feature on my Cricut. I moved the Blade Housing (aka--Engraving Tip) to the center of the earring and made my design 1 1/2". It fit perfectly!
When you are done, you just have to wipe away the "dust" that the evgraving leaves. I then used some Silver Stickles on the center of the design.
I would say I can't wait to wear this, but someone already took it from me as soon as it was done--actually the Stickles weren't even dry yet!!! Got to love having a teenager!!
