Earring Cards with my Silhouette Cameo Cutting Machine


I was experimenting today making earring cards with my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine. I made two sizes, one that fit 4 pair of earrings and ones that fit 2. I don't know how to get the font on the cards yet without it cutting out the font. But as I was finished it occurred to me ((perhaps how)) to do it, so I will do it again in a few days.  Here are the results without the text I wanted on the front sides.

It's so exciting that my silhouette cameo cutting machine can cut earring cards for me, I have wanted to make my own for a long time without the long arduous task of doing it all by hand.  

Here is the backside of the 4 pair earring card and I love this paper pattern very much.

 Front side, I used double sided paper


Here is the 2 pair earring card

Yes more paper fun with my silhouette cameo. 

I think these are so pretty and look very professional. This is much better then my Recycled Earring holders I made using Kleenex boxes. I had tried to cut through the Kleenex boxes using paper punches but it would not go all the way through, so I guess that idea is out. Though somewhat a cute idea it's not professional looking. See my post here, Eat Your Earrings.
I had made 33 pair of earrings and sold quite a few, but I need to get the rest up on my website at www.krystalkats.com 
Now today I have made several more earrings and I plan on making quite a bit more as well in the next few weeks, so I better get busy adding them to my online shopping cart.  

It's hard to believe we are just 3 days away from the new year 2012, that sounds funny, I always think the new year sounds funny.

  1. Great idea! Just curious if you would share more info about these. What weight/type of paper did you use? I saw that it was double sided but not what kind. Also, would you mind sharing if you figured out the lettering? Oh and what are the dimensions of the card, like 3x3 or so? Thanks!

    1. I used my Silhouette Cameo to make/cut the earring cards. I don't know any of the specifics about paper or what brand, there is no lettering on the cards. Without digging them out I don't know what size they are either, I used the Silhouette Cameo to make them and you can make them whatever size you want with that machine.
