I saw some really cute earrings made from scrapbooking brads and knew I needed them. Since I am a copycat, I got right on it.
I also got these sets:
Sunny and I have enjoyed giving away some pairs.
I used Ryan's cutter-thingers to cut the brad part off the back. The little bit I couldn't cut I just opened up. Glued and earring to it with E-6000 and that is it. I made about 20 pairs of earrings during one episode of Parenthood. So easy.
Plus Hobby Lobby often has them on sale for 50% off (normally $3.99), so 6 pairs of earrings cost me about $2.50.
EDITED TO ADD: I finally found the site I saw these at! I need to start bookmarking or something, takes me forever to refind ideas... Anyway, check them out HERE
