Halloween Earrings

This was a fun little project using up the scraps from a larger Halloween piece I’ll hopefully be able to photograph and share tomorrow.  The paper was from K & Co and i just covered small wood tiles front and back with the paper, trying to somewhat center the spiders on the fronts of the earrings.  I then covered front and back with Crackle Accents from Ranger.  After both sides had dried, I applied black Stickles (Ranger) to the edges and used a McGill paper drill to make the holes to attach the jumprings for the earrings.  I used the paper drill rather than a Crop-a-dile because I had forgotten to do this before applying the Crackle Accents and I was afraid of the CAD splitting the crackle.  The paper drill actually drills into your project in a circular motion and I have yet to have it splinter, crack, or in any way mess up anything I’ve used it on, from acrylic to CD’s to paper and chipboard.  It’s a great little tool and a wonderful option for those who might have trouble with the Crop-a-dile because of arthritis or carpal tunnel.  You simply spin the handle around and even the toughest material doesn’t require any strength to turn it.
