Make your own Cricut Craft Foam Earrings!
I use my deep cut blade on a regular basis because I like to cut the more challenging materials for my projects. The deep cut blade can even cut balsa wood! (Don’t believe me? Check out this post I did a couple of Christmases ago!) If you are not using it, you will need to change to that blade to create your earrings.
Open blade clamp B and remove the blade housing unit.
Depress the plunger which will expose the blade. Carefully pull blade out and set aside. Open package for deep cut blade and remove the plastic cover. Place blade into opening. It is magnetized so you will feel it pull into the housing unit. Place entire housing unit back in clamp B and close clamp.
You can tell the difference between the standard blade and deep cut blade.
Now that your blade is in place, you are ready to cut the thicker materials! For this project, I used the plush craft foam but you could also use faux leather to make some amazing jewelry!
I made teardrop earrings but you can use any shape you want. You can also size it to your preference. I don’t like particularly long earrings so I would say these are about medium length.
Preparing to cut your Cricut Craft Foam Earrings
Once you have created your image in Design Space, you will need to adjust the machine for the new material. Craft foam is considered a custom material. Turn the knob on the right hand of your machine to custom. In your mat preview, click change material. Use the drop down box and choose”craft foam, plush”. You are ready to cut!
Remove your cut earrings from the craft foam. Using your weeding hook, punch out the small hole in the top. This is where you will place your fishhook earrings.
You will need 2 jump rings and a fishhook earring to complete each earring.
Attach a jump ring to the craft foam through the hole at the top. Add another jump ring so that when you add the fishhook it will hang the correct way on your ear. Finally, add the fishhook.
I LOVE how these turned out! I’ve made a couple of different pairs now!
You should see the ones I made from cork! Swooning…
I’d love for you to pin this image!
