Handmade Earrings Cards

Here is a popular post I did on my blog a while back on how to make your own earrings cards. Written by me, the post also incorporates ideas from other jewelry designers.

That is a neat compilation of ideas!  I also thank you for taking the time to share this~ I had to look up what a "Moo Card" was...  This is yet another neat source/idea!

I have been using some paper I found that has wildflower seeds embedded (the paper is also from recycled sources) and I use a paper cutter to get it to a certain size then I found a scrapbooking paper punch that is perfect for earwires. I hand-write on the back 'PLANT ME' and have a lil stamp on the front that says Seedlings.

That is good for sending out orders etc. but I need something slightly different for my first upcoming show! I had seen the sticky backed adapters in a catalog, Fire Mountain Gems maybe? Anybody have any experience with those and custom cards?

I used the idea of the tent card for some custom cards I made using 70% recycled paper cardstock. Going to try them out in an Etsy Team NorGa home show next weekend and also have been using them to update some of my shop photos!

We use a similar card and they work great as craft show displays when the racks are full.

Ya, they worked out better than the display cards I had, I think because they were easy to pick up and play with.

Thanks for writing that.  I think I came across it months ago when I was looking up ideas for what to do with my tags as well.  I ended up using Vistaprint and designed my own cards.  I had gotten sick if using the punch and paper, etc. that I had been using.  Plus I wanted to make sure when someone purchased something from me they had a way of finding me again!

I made it so that I can use the card lengthwise and cut it in half to get 2 earring cards with my name and website on them. I've attached a photo for a sample.

Now that's a cool and thrifty idea! You still have to punch for the earwire though yes?
