    This is Elise. 

    Anyone remember these? I do. Today we're making a slightly more grown-up version of that: the poor-woman's-Annie-Costella-Brown version to be specific. 

    You'll need:

    • This. (also available on Amazon)
    • Scissors
    • Oven or toaster oven
    • Parchment paper
    • Jump rings
    • Pliers
    • Earring posts
    • Hot glue
    • Hole punch

    • Check the instructions on the package for temp and preheat the oven. 
    • Cut out your awesome pieces and make sure they're HUGE. Like, 4-5 times bigger than you want the final version. 
    • Hole punch where the jump rings will connect the pieces. 
    • BAKE AND WATCH THEM SHRINK IT'S AWSOME!
    • Things can get weird while they're in the oven, so if you need to, you can straighten them out by placing them on a flat surface right out of the oven and flatten them with a metal spatula. 
    • Once they've cooled, attach them all together with jump rings and the pliers. 
    • Hot glue earring posts onto the back. 
    • Enjoy. 

    And Wyatt. You're welcome.
