At first, I wanted to make a simple card to gift the custom earrings I’ve made but then I couldn’t help myself and ended up designing a set of them.
These DIY earring displays can be used for craft shows are as simple cards to gift.
I didn’t do it in the photos but you can easily add a brand logo or a handwritten note on the card itself.
If you are looking for DIY earring display ideas, three of the designs are free standing can act as a prop in addition to being a general card for the earrings.
I also left the size of the cards appropriate for longer earrings or hoops. you Can shrink the template if you have smaller earrings.
Even if you don’t have a cutting machine the picture frame earring holder is simple enough to cut by hand.
Materials for DIY Earring Holder Cards
Cardstock – I would recommend at least 60lb or heavier cardstock for this project. The free standing ones might need even stronger cardstock depending on how heavy your earrings are. Here are some of my favorite brands:
- Recollections 65lb Cardstock from Michaels
- Favorite Assorted Pink/Blush 12″x12″ Recollections Set
- Favorite Assorted Purple 12″x12″ Recollections Set
- Metallic Shimmer Assorted Set from Amazon
- Neenah Collections Assorted Set from Amazon
- Kraft Cardstock from Michaels
Templates – I’ve included the earring holder templates in both printable and SVG formats for free in my resource library.
Tips for making the earring holders
These are pretty straight forward to make.
I like using the light grip mat for paper projects like this. Some of the cut are more intricate and I find the standard mat too sticky and hard to clean afterwards.
I’m also not a big fan of the scoring tool. I like to score my paper by hand after cutting.
I simple take a ruler and a straight edge like this scraper or a credit can imprint a crease. This usually provides enough guidance for the cardstock to flexible and crease in a clean manner.
