Cowgirl Rustic Floral Heart Earrings
Updated: Sep 18, 2021
You've seen the background patterns on our website and you're wondering how to use them? Here's a tutorial to give you a spark of inspiration for your next project!
To create your own heart earrings, you will need one of Metal Maven's pattern pressings. The one below is a good pattern to use for this project. We also have many other all-over background patterns to choose from on our website.
(Before starting this project I blackened my whole pressing using Gosiba and sanded it with 800 grit wet/dry sandpaper. You can use your choice of blackening agent before cutting, or you can wait until you've cut your pieces out.)
MAKE A TEMPLATE
First you will need to plot where you want your earring cutouts on your pressing. You can freehand your designs or make a template.
TIP: An easy way to make a reusable see-through template is to find something plastic that you no longer need like a lid to plastic food container!
Cut the middle out of the lid.
