  • Then mirror your cuts in Cricut Design Space and pick faux leather as your material. Cut the leather with your machine. If you are using the Cricut Joy, I have a few tips and tricks in this post for you.

  • Once the cut is complete, remove the mat from the machine and peel back the excess material to reveal your cut earrings.

  • Then remove the earrings themselves from the mat. Remember that pieces cut from the insides of the earrings might make cute earrings themselves so do not discard anything until you are use you have used all of the pieces you want to use.

  • To assemble the earrings, use your weeding tool to punch small hole in the top of each one.

  • Then use your jewelry pliers to open up the loop in the hook or to open up a jump ring depending on how you are making your earring.

  • In this case, I just added the hook to the earring through the hole and closed up the loop in the hook with the jewelry pliers.
