How to Make Faux Leather Earrings

"Making earrings with your personal die cutting machine is a current hot topic in crafting. It is really fun to be able to make a pair of earrings to match an outfit or for a special occasion without having to pay a lot for a store-bought pair. I've done it before, but these leaf-like earrings are my newest design. The faux leather in blue and grey is cut on a personal die cutting machine. Then the layers are glued together and weighted down while drying. Finally, jewelry findings are used to finish off the earrings."
