"Recycle your old leather bags and turn them into beautiful earrings. I actually had some leather samples from shopping for a new living room sofa and decided to repurpose them into a small handmade gift for my girlfriends. These are super easy to make with a cutting machine like a Cricut or Silhouette. I've included a tutorial and free templates in my post. These designs work great for both real leather and faux leather. Make a set today for yourself and your friends!"
