Instructions for Making Earrings

The first step is to pick out the scrapbook paper design you want. I stuck with a smaller, colorful, floral pattern for this particular pair, allowing for more design flair in the earrings.

Cut paper to pendant shape with a craft knife. This is the most tedious step because it may require more trimming and shaping to fit the paper inside the pendant.

Fit paper inside each pendant.

Dimensional Magic allows you to finish the earrings with a clear raised finish. Fill in the surface of each earring pendant with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, making sure it goes to the edges of your earrings, also removing bubbles with a toothpick. It’s important to remove any bubbles you may have; otherwise, they’ll show up even after the Mod Podge has dried. You’ll want to allow about 3 hours for this to dry. When first applied, it will look milky, but it’ll clear as it dries.Love finding Mod Podge ideas? Me too!

After your jewelry has dried well, then you can add the necessary hardware, using the round-nose pliers. Hardware includes jump rings (if you prefer them) and flat fishhook earwires.

  1. I would really love to try to make these, they are so cute! However I’ve been searching online for over a half hour and I can’t find anything even close to the earring pendants you used here. Where did you get yours/ do you know where these are sold??

  2. I am new to the Modge Podge Dimensional Magic. I was wondering about the longevity of the clear coat? Does it turn cloudy over time? Is the pair that you made in the photo still clear, or have they dulled? I make (and sell) jewelry, so I am wondering if this would stand the test of time. I have been using glass cabochons up to now, but am interested in testing this product. Thank you so much for your insight, and great tutorial.

    • Hey Cheryl, I have a couple necklaces that are still very clear. And I’ve had them for at least 3 years, probably longer. I gave the pair of earrings I made in the photo to my niece, and I’m not sure what they look like now, but if they’re like the necklaces, they’re probably still clear too. You’re very welcome. Thank you! I wish you the best of luck.

  3. Do you think this would work with fabric? I make a lot of my clothes and thought this would be nice to make earrings to match.
