I am currently getting ready for an upcoming show, so I thought I would share my latest earring displays with you.
I started making these earring cards several shows back. I got the idea for them from The Beading Gems blog posting: Making your own earring cards. They stand up well even in a light breeze. Here is a photo of my earring cards.
I used a business card template in Microsoft Word to create these cards. I have a design on the front and background information on the back of the card. I also include the URL of my Etsy store on the back of the card. Here are some examples:After I print and cut the cards, I then fold the ends to stablize the card.
I have used these cards on my tabletop in previous shows, but I decided to hang them for my upcoming show. I like the idea of hanging the cards, because hanging invites more touching. I bet you are wondering what I am going to hang the earring cards on.
Several weeks ago my husband and I purchased two sets of louvered shutters like these. I attached the louvered shutters together with a pair of hinges. Not very hard to do, I simply drill piolot holes in the shutters and screwed them together.These shutters will make the perfect display for my earring cards.
Hope you enjoyed todays craft show tip.
