Pop Can Alcohol Ink Earrings

Congratulations Kate!!! I've sent you an email, reply back to it with your info and we'll get your prize sent out to you. 


I'll be posting the Freebie Friday giveaway in a little bit, so stay tuned! :D -Brie


Today on Studio 5, I demonstrated how to make earrings from the metal from a pop can.



Here is the supply list:

Vagabond Machine
Various Sizzix embossing folders
Pop cans
Alcohol inks & Alcohol ink applicator with felt squares
Various punches (I used the heart, circle and square from Martha Stewart Crafts)
Tim Holtz Tonic non-stick serrated scissors
20 gauge metal
Earring hooks

Here are the instructions:
Using the scissors and wearing gloves, cut the top and the bottom of the pop can off.
Cut down the center of the pop can opening it up so it lays flat.
Cut off a piece of aluminum can and flatten it out.
Place a clean, white piece of felt onto the applicator.
Place the nib of the alcohol ink into the applicator. Press for 2 seconds.
Repeat with no more than 2 colors. More than that, makes the colors too blended and creates a blended look that the colors are too mixed.
Randomly stamp the applicator on the piece of aluminum so not to create a pattern.
With alcohol inks, they dry almost instantly so you don’t need to wait very long for them to dry.
Continue to stamp completely over the entire piece of aluminum.
When the entire piece aluminum is covered, place it into the middle of the embossing folder.
Run the folder through your Vagabond machine. (Note: Because the metal is very thin, I put a piece of chipboard inside the folder to take some of pressure of the folder. This creates the embossed image on the metal but doesn’t make it ripped or torn.)
Take the embossed metal out of the folder, and using the punches, punch a shape out of the embossed metal.
Punch a hole in the shape.
Add the earring parts, and enjoy your creation.
