Trim paper to fit into bezel and glue into place.
Seal the top of the paper with two layers of white craft glue and let each layer dry.
Apply adhesive rhinestones where desired.
Apply glue in selected areas of the paper and sprinkle a tiny bit of glitter onto the glue. Use just enough glitter to add sparkle to the design without covering it; let the glue dry for several hours. Shake off excess glitter.
Cover work space with a piece of waxed paper.
Mix a small amount of EnviroTex® Jewelry Resin per kit instructions.
Pour a little resin onto bezel and spread with a craft stick. Add more resin until it forms a slight dome.
After about 25 minutes, pop any bubbles by gently blowing through a drinking straw over bubble.
Leave in place to dry for 24 hours before finishing earrings.
Thread three to five beads onto the head pins then snip and create loops for hanging. Attach these beaded pieces onto the earrings. We used more beads for the center dangle and decreased the other lengths to create a chevron shape with our beaded dangles.
Attach french ear wire.
Michaels stocks many new paper designs, and you may not find the exact paper we used here. However, you will find lots of fun choices to craft with!
