Holiday packaging tips

Upcycle items you probably already have
RELATED TOPICS: HOLIDAY | EARRINGS
Give your homemade gifts a little extra zing, with very little (if any) extra cost by using things from your Christmas decoration stash.

Look for more holiday gift and packaging ideas in the upcoming "Naomi Knows" post.
tip1
Some of the petals on my white silk poinsettia plan were yellowing with age. Before I tossed it, I saved some still-white petals for earring cards.
tip2
I created a bail with a bit of wire and suspended these earrings inside a clear ornament left over from a craft project. This only works with narrow earrings. You can also use a metallic Sharpie to write the recipient's name on the glass.
tip3
I love these gift tags, but they never seemed to match the wrapping paper I was using. They are a perfect whimsical earring delivery system!

PS: The earrings in these examples are from our upcoming special issue 365 Earrings Vol. 2.

Floral Wreath Earrings

Many flowers, like the chrysanthemum, bloom in the fall, bringing a bit of summer into the cooler autumn months.  Carry that transitional beauty into your jewelry creations with these earrings.  Design by Lori Anderson.
