The DIY version of Nasty Gal's Decay Starburst Earrings
-When picking your cardboard, try to choose something that won't bend too much when you poke a hole in it and isn't too thick to poke your file through easily.
-If you have a lot of files to choose from, try poking test holes in your cardboard. Ideally, the hole in your cardboard should have a lot of distressing.
The project probably won't take you three hours, I just put that to allow for the drying time of the sealer and glue.
This is what I'll be DIY-ing: http://www.nastygal.com/accessories/decay-starburst-earrings
You Will Need
Cut pieces of foil tape to fit over your stars. (the tape is really sticky)
Cut out the tape between the points of your stars, making sure to leave a bit of tape to cover the sides.
Use your bone folder or your fingers to push the tape around the sides of your star until the whole thing is covered.
Use your file (the one you'll use for poking holes) to sand the tips of the stars so that they don't poke you while you wear your earrings.
