I am a little obsessed with two things right now: compasses and leather. I also have a natural inclination toward DIY fashion, so I thought, why not put all of my favorite things together? Leather compass earrings are what came of it. This project is awesome because they are extremely simple to make and looks amazing, so try out the Cricut Explore® Pen on leather using a compass or another fun design.
Here is what you need:
Cricut Explore® machine
Cricut Design Space™; software
12 in x 12 in StrongGrip Cricut® mat
Cricut® Antiquity Pen in Midnight
6.5 in W x 3.5 in H Vegetable Tanned Leather
Heavy-duty hole punch
Click here to open the Leather Earrings project in Cricut Design Space™. When the project opens, read through the instructions and click “Make it Now.”
Follow the instructions in Cricut Design Space™ to cut the earrings from leather. The project file creates 3 sets of earrings; each earing measures 1.5” W x 1.5” H.
Use a heavy-duty hole punch to cut holes in the leather for the jump rings.
Connect two jump rings and ear wire using pliers.
Connect the jump ring to the leather medallion using pliers.
It is just that easy!
Peace & Love,
