Brother ScanNCut: Earrings

The Brother ScanNCut is finally available for sale!  To get you excited, I'm sharing a quick and easy project that uses leftover scraps from another project.  (I love using every little bit, don't you?)

We’re going to use the leftover bits from having cut a stencil design (I'll be sharing a video all about that process very soon!).  One of the great things about the Brother ScanNCut is that you always get two perfect pieces – a positive and a negative – whenever you cut something out. 

Color the leaf shapes with markers that will write on a slick surface since we're using stencil film.  I used four different colors in a haphazard manner.

Use silver metallic ink and a rolling stamp to stamp a dot pattern onto the leaves.  

Be sure to let the ink dry before going on to the next step.  I didn't and you'll notice my dots got a little smeary.

Punch a hole in each of the leaves.  Use the smallest hole punch you have.

Insert an earring hook through each of the holes. 

That’s it!  You have a fabulous new pair of earrings!

I made a video for you too:

Thanks for stopping by!
