What you need:
2 7/8″ Circle Aluminum Stamping Blanks
2 Dapped and Spring Ear Wires, Silver Plate
2 6mm Jump Rings, Silver Plate
2 Miniature Jingle Bells
ImpressArt Basic Metal Stamp Set, Uppercase, 3mm
Ergo-Angle Metal Stamping Hammer
ImpressArt 2 by 2-Inch Steel Block
ImpressArt Stamp Straight Tape
ImpressArt Chasing Hammer
8 Punch Dapping Block Set
Folk Art Enamel Acrylic Paint, Licorice
2 pairs ImpressArt Chain Nose Pliers
How to make:
Step one: Use round end of a ball peen hammer to add texture to the surface of your blanks. Step two: Stamp NAUGHTY on one blank. Stamp Straight tape secures the blanks and provides an edge so you can stamp across the center. The word NAUGHTY just fits, so start stamping in the center and move out to make sure you get it all on the blank! Step three: Stamp NICE on the second blank. Step four: Place blank bottom side up in dapping block, make sure the blank fits the block so you get a nice dome.
Step five: Place corresponding punch into block and hammer with brass hammer. Move the punch around as you hit to make an even dome. Step six: Repeat the dapping process with the second blank. Step seven: Use a cotton swab to apply paint to surface of blanks. Allow to sit for 30 seconds. Wipe off excess with paper towel. Step eight: Slide blank, bell and earring wire on jump ring and connect with chain nose pliers. Be sure to close your rings with tension so they’re secure. Repeat for second earring.
Jingle, jingle, you naughty little minx! Or nice minx. Whichever!
