To be a star yourself, you need extra star shine in your jewelry! Crafting a pair of supersize star shape earrings is easy with Imagine Sheet Metal and the Starstruck foiled paper from Rinea. The Sheet Metal star frames that are created with dies, keep inside the double-sided foiled paper that shows on both sides of the earrings with no extra work. Tear It Tape is a great tool to attach the metal pieces and the paper together. A liquid glue that may leak on in the center. To gift the star shape earrings, create a small pocket with more Rinea foil paper and a small sentiment stamped with VersaFine Clair ink. See how I did it!
Time: 40 minutes
Die cut four star-shaped frames from Imagine’s Sheet Metal using a 2.5-inch and a 1.75-inch star dies.
Die cut 2 Rinea foil paper stars using a 2-inch wide star frame.
Place Tear It Tape around the Sheet Metal star frame on the back side of it.
Set the Rinea foil paper star. It will leave space around it so you can easily glue the second-star frame.
Punch a small hole and add a large jump ring and an earring hook. Repeat on the second earring.
Score a 5×5 piece of cardstock at the lower 2-inch mark, place Tear It Tape on the short sides and fold to make a pocket.
Cut a 1×5 inch piece of Rinea foil, place Tear It Tape and glue on the folded side.
Punch two hole on the main card, leaving 1 ½ in from each side.
Stamp the “Wish” sentiment stamp with VersaFine Clair Purple Delight ink and cut along.
Set a star of Sheet Metal that previously removed to make the frame and the “Wish” stamped paper cutting on the front of the card using Tear It Tape.
