Today is my mom’s birthday, so of course I had to make something uber-fun & fab for her special day!
She mentioned to me that she was in need of a pair of bronze-y/gold earrings and that’s all I needed to hear to get my crafty mojo going!
I had never made jewelry before, but I knew I wanted something simple, classy and a little bit flashy!
I scoured the jewelry aisles at Michael’s for at least 2 hours – I’m pretty sure the manager thought I was casing the joint.
Here’s what I came up with: 
I think they are so pretty. Definitely something she can wear everyday, but special enough for a night out on the town!
Now, you know I couldn’t just make earrings without making some fabulous packaging too!
So I mounted the earrings on a couple pieces of cardstock by using by 1/16 hole punch to give them somewhere to hang. The finished look is similar to what you get in the department store – but way more fun!
I also made a cute little matchbook folder to package them. I was inspired by the Papertrey Ink Lunchbox Note die – which is very similar is design.
I dressed up the packaging and made a card to coordinate. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the stars with that sentiment – they are a match made in heaven.
And a matching envie (duh!)
I am really happy with the finished product and I’m sure my mom will be happy to. 
Keep checking back today, because I’ll also be posting day two of my week-long Ode to Valentine’s Day!!

  1. No SERIOUSLY, I am obsessed with these earrings and the amazing packaging and card. The cut out for the earrings is just too perfect. Linda is going to love it all!!!

  2. Lovely gift Amber. The earrings are beautifully enhanced in your little folder – love how you used that die to cut the opening. The card and lined envelope are super cute.
