Got ten minutes? Then you’ve got enough time to make these punny earrings and show ’em who’s Queen Bee. Heck, you can make up a whole hive’s worth! In fact, you can make these Queen Bee Earrings in just three easy steps, just stamp, ink, connect and wear! Even the busiest gal has time for that. And don’t be afraid, the new Soft Strike pewter stamping blanks from ImpressArt make it easy to make a great first impression. You got this!
What you need:
2 ImpressArt Stamping Blank Washer, 15/16-Inch, Pewter
2 Fine Silver Plated Pewter Small Honey Bee Charms
2 Beadalon 10-MM Jump Ring, Silver Plated
2 Beadalon Dapped and Spring Ear Wire, Silver Plated
ImpressArt Newsprint Stamps in Lowercase and Uppercase
ImpressArt 2 by 2-Inch Steel Block
Ergo-Angle Metal Stamping Hammer
ImpressArt Stamp Straight Tape
ImpressArt Bent Nose Pliers
ImpressArt Chain Nose Pliers
Step one: Stamp ‘Q u e e n’ on each blank. Start at the bottom center with the letter ‘e’ and work up each side, spacing your letters evenly as in photo. Step two: Use cotton swab to dab ink into letters. Wipe excess off of surface with paper towel, leaving ink in the stamped areas. Step three: Connect the washer, charm and ear wire in that order to a 10mm jump ring using the bent and chain nose pliers. You may need to gently turn the loop at the bottom of your ear wire so they hang forward. Step four: Wear them with pride because you made them!
“You can call me Queen Bee,
and baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule,
let me live that fantasy.”
These Queen Bee Earrings would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift too, I’m just sayin’.
