Earrings and earring cards

(sorry, not the best pic!) Each December, the 8th grade scouts at our school host a "Santa Sale" to allow all the students in the school to purchase inexpensive Christmas gifts for their families. The other grades at the school contribute hand made items to the sale. This year our troop made over 65 pairs of french wire earrings. I needed a way to package them inexpensively so the children could get them home. I decided to cut cardstock into pieces, punch holes to put the earrings through, and tape them to the back to secure. I stamped "Merry Christmas" on the front for just a bit of decoration. Where there is a need, there is a crafty solution!

Supplies: Riding Hood Red Ink, Double Rectangle Punch, sentiment from The Angel Co.
