“300 pairs of earrings”

  

Description from Mommykat Bubbly Chick: I need to make 300 pairs of earrings before the 14th of Nov. Hahaha! I have a show, and I will need something the children can purchase for their moms/grandmoms! I take cardstock, and cut into squares, and then scallop the edges w/ scissors, and have my children decorate each square w/ Christmas stickers. I use silver plate, and sell them for 3.00 pair!

    This is how many I made last year… sold them all. It made the kids so happy! They got to do their own shopping, and have ‘suprise’ presents for their moms, and Grandmoms.

    You should look at your schedule this month, and see if you have any days that are good for you. I can check w/ my hubby, and see if it works, it would be so nice to meet you in person!

    Wow Lorrie, that’s an ambitious goal! But I know you can do it. It’s such a great idea, too! Can’t wait to see what you make. Maybe I’ll have to consider that for my show the 21st…

    Lorrie—please don’t hurt your hands/fingers and I am not kidding around. I went on a extreme earring making but did it all in one day like a dummy and made about 40 prs—used silver plated headpins and wrecked my fingers wrapping. Just be careful! Not trying to be a mother hen here LOL–Oh heck yes I am! :)

    Sue, They turn out really cute- and also it is great for marketing- if the little girls have something to look at the moms are more free to shop!
    See….

  17. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    yes, I do- I go to Acmoore/Michaels/Joannes, ect & buy the mini tree ornament packs, in an assortment of colors & styles, and keep the prices low- I can make 5 pairs of the peppermints for under 5.00 (I dont count my time on these) I will post an assortment when I have a few more done in the gallery!

    Snowflakes are good, and I make sugar cookies as post earrings.

  19. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    I will probably only make half now, and prepare the other half for my Early December show!

    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    REAL sugar cookies? Either way, I love that idea! :D

    Good thing – pace yourself, girl…go Lorrie, go! :D

    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Okay Lorrie—that’s a good little Chicky :) My fingers were ruined for months and months—they were clicking and locking up on me and were numb when I woke up in the morning. Love your little paperstock designs. I do the same thing—take paper stock and cut them with some cute little scallop scissors and punch the holes in them. I use black a lot b/c from learning through my photography–black makes things stand out b/c your eyes are drawn to the color instead of the black. But of course yours are awesome for Christmas.

  22. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    And the best part is all of my children help make them! the older ones cut, and then my special guys place stickers! It is a sweet deal! ;)

    Nite Girls! Sleep sweet! Off to bed…
