          1. I have really enjoyed your tutorials! I can’t wait to try them myself! Thank you so much for bringing something exciting to look forward to into my day! I done many cricut projects but never cut the leather or faux leather. Looking forward to new crafting!

  2. Madeline Griggs says:

    I really enjoyed your Makerfest video. I have the Cricut Explore, will it cut faux leather? If so, what blade would I use? Thank you.

    1. Hi, Madeline! I’m so glad you enjoyed my presentation. I don’t have an Explore myself, I have an Explore Air 2, but I have readers who have told me they make my projects on the Cricut Explore. They cut faux leather with just the regular fine point blade. I hope that helps! Thank you. Amy

      1. I can’t to make these!! Thank you!!

        1. Hello Amy, I love your earrings. Thanks so much.
          I just watched the penguin tutorial and it doesn’t seem to give me my 5 extra entries. Please advise. I did watch all of it. I love penguins, they are th3 silliest creatures.


          1. Hi, Joanne! Sorry about that little glitch with the giveaway program. I’ve updated your entries manually. Thank you.

    2. I enjoyed your class I learned a lot Thank You

      1. I can’t wait. I am anxious to make my first pair of earrings.

        1. I’m excited, too, Sonya! Thanks for your comment. 🙂

      2. I can’t wait to make the earrings. Thank you.

  3. Just saw your video on making earring on the Maker fest event. I am slowly building my way to those supplies. I have a Maker, my deep point blade just arrived. But still need the iron press machine (mini would be awesome) and some material like leather. Can’t wait to make my first pair.

    1. Hi, Aleida! I’m so glad you liked my Holiday MakerFest video! Please keep in mind that I used the regular fine point blade during my video, you don’t need the deep point blade (although it’s great to have!). Thank you! Amy

      1. Hi Amy
        Question have you used any other faux leather than cricut’s. I am having trouble finding cricut faux leather and maybe it is the season and what is going on. So is there some other supplies you have used that are recommended? I really loved your class it was so much fun. I loved how easy you made it.
        Thank you

        1. Hi, Faith! Thanks for your message. I’m afraid we created a nationwide Cricut brand faux leather shortage after my Holiday MakerFest earring presentation!

          I do use many other faux leathers! Every tutorial on my blog has the exact materials listed, including where I bought the faux leather (usually from Etsy or Amazon). My Favorite Products page also has my favorite Etsy shops for faux leather at the bottom of the page:

          On Amazon, I’ve had success with nearly every faux leather I’ve purchased. That’s because (I think) the key to getting good cuts is less about the material and more about the cutting process. I have a post with 17 of my best tips & tricks for cutting faux leather that you may find helpful:

          Thank you again for your comment!

          p.s. If you are asking specifically about the Cricut brand faux leather I recommend in my snowflake earring tutorial, I still strongly recommend using Cricut brand for that project because it is thin but dense so it will cut the snowflake earring shape well. You can also use jelly sheets, which I made an alternate version of those earrings with. I’ve linked to several different jelly sheets on this page:

            Your Class at the Maker Fest was amazing!! I am an earrings lover, thank you so much, I already finished a small bunch of snowflakes and gingerbread earrings. They are super cute and they look super fancy and very expensive(wink). I am giving must of them to friends and family to wear during the Holidays, but I am making a couple for me too. Thank you again, and I can’t way until Monday to see what you’ll have to teach us during those 10 days of crafting. Thanks a lot.

  8. Hi!
    I enjoyed your video tutorial on Makerfest.
    For the holiday earrings. I made the gingerbread man ones they turned out so cute! Instead of earrings I’m making them into necklaces for my granddaughters.
    Instead of foil on back ( only because I didn’t have any on hand) to make them a little thicker I cut out another plain gingerbread man and glued the 2 backs together. Looking forward to making some more of your designs, and definitely will tune into your 10 days of crafting.

    1. Hi, Jeanne! I’m so glad you enjoyed my Maker Fest project! I love how you adapted the design. I have a really popular video on YouTube about different ways to put a back on faux leather, and that’s one of them. Awesome job! I’m glad you are excited about the 10 Days of Crafting – I am, too! Amy

    2. How about elf earrings? I am obsessed with elves.
      Love the penguin idea too! Penguin necklace and earrings.

      1. I like the elf idea, Brenda! Thank you!

  9. This makes me soooo happy! Thank you for everything you do!!

    And your amazing wonderful earrings! I am a Christmas Earring hoarder, so I am excited even more!!

    1. Hi, Tracy!
      Thank you for your comment! I’m so happy you are excited about the event. I do have lots of Christmas earrings featured in the event, I hope you’ll enjoy making them as much as I did. 🙂 Amy

  15. Jodie Potter says:

    Hi Amy,
    You were great at Makerfest! Looking forward to your 10 days of crafts. Stay safe!!

    1. Hi, Jodie! Thank you so much. The Holiday MakerFest was SO fun. I’m sad it’s over! I think Jennifer Maker should do a Spring one, and a Summer one, and a Fall one… 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to write. Happy crafting! Amy

  16. I really enjoyed the earring class at the Maker Fest. I made the snowflake earrings out of gray cork, they turned out great and gave them to my 81 year old mother…she loves them. Know to make a pair for myself!!

    1. Hi, Jennifer! Thanks for your comment. Grey cork snowflake earrings sound really pretty! I’m so glad you mom likes them. That makes my heart happy. Thanks again for taking the time to write. 🙂 Amy

    1. Hi, SoozG! Me too! 🙂

  17. I enjoyed the projects in the Makerfest. Your Gingerbread and Snowflakes earrings were very nice. I had to go buy the material needed to make the earrings. I have visit your sight many times after the Makerfest. You do amazing work. Thank for sharing you work.

    1. Hi, Amelia! I’m so glad you enjoyed my Holiday MakerFest project. I had a wonderful time too, and I met so many amazing people. I really appreciate your support, and I’m so happy you enjoy my projects. 🙂 Amy

      1. Amelia Talamantez says:

        I have enjoyed the 10 day projects so far. The key chain and Christmas earrings are adorable. Are you going to make Christmas tree earrings? I’m imagining the Christmas trees with the Faux leather and shiny rhinestones. I think a nativity pendant would also be nice.
        Thank you for sharing your projects.

        1. Hi, Amelia! Great ideas, thank you! I’ve also sent you an email. Thank you. Amy

  18. So excited for this !! I wasnt even aware that we could do this on our cricuts lol yes Im still learning . Thank you so much for youre time and all you share with us 🙂

    1. Hi, Kathy!
      Thank you for your comment! I’m so glad you are learning and enjoying your Cricut. Thank you for being here with me! Keep crafting!
      Best regards, Amy

  19. I loved your earrings. Great job at the Holiday Maker fest

    1. Thank you so much, Ellen! I appreciate it. Amy

  20. I have an older silhouette, any idea about using svg files?

    1. Hi, Jacklyn! Thanks for your message. Unfortunately, I’m not a Silhouette user, so I’m not very familiar with them. I know you can use SVG files with the upgraded design software. If you do a lot of crafting with SVGs, that may be a worthwhile investment for you. As far as using an older machine, I know there are a lot of Silhouette groups on Facebook full of friendly and helpful crafters. If you posed your question in one of those groups, I would think they would be able to help you! Thanks again for your comment. Best regards, Amy

  21. Helen J Roberts says:

    I have been a fan of yours for awhile. I love your easy to follow way of making wonderful earrings. I was thrilled to see you are part of the Makerfest Holiday event. Thank you so much for sharing from a happy crafter.

    1. Hi, Helen! Thank you so for much for the kind words. I enjoyed the Holiday MakerFest myself – there were so many amazing crafters and makers. I’m so glad you liked it, too. I hope you’ll share some earrings you make with me, I would love to see them! Amy

  22. I loved your video on the Jennifer Maker event page and so happy that I will follow you as you inspired me to try to make jewelry. I can not wait to see your new event coming up. Thank you, Amy.

    1. Hi, Lisa! Thank you so much for your comment. I really appreciate the kind words! I love to teach, learn, help, and inspire, so you’ve made my day! I’m glad you are looking forward to my 10 Days of Crafting Event. I’m really excited about it too. 🙂 Amy

  23. Lula Knox says:

    Hi Amy so excited for this event. I got my explore almost 2 years ago and have not used much of anything so I have some faux leather, htv, and printable posterboard like that just no sparkly stuff lol thats my next investment but I have a few colors to start .
    Thank so much for doing this and the makerfest. I think this is going to help me get use to using alot of different materials but on a smaller scale since I have limited income. Im excited, your book is great too

    1. Hi, Lula!

      Thanks for your message. It sounds like you have some fun materials to get started. I would say, even if I use faux leather or something in a project and you don’t have it on hand, just use what you have. Get comfortable with your machine and experiment cutting different materials. If you get stuck or have a question, don’t hesitate to ask. That’s what I’m here for. 🙂

      I’m so excited you’re here, and I can’t wait to share more projects with you!

      Best regards,

  24. Amy, Loved you earrings and ornaments form the Holiday Maker fest. Have not had time to make them yet but I will be busy in the first week of December (staycation). Wondering if there are any step by step instructions for the snowflake ornament on your website?

    1. Hi, Sandra!

      Thank you for your comment! A staycation sounds wonderful. 🙂 I don’t have the snowflake ornament tutorial on my website yet, but I do have the snowflake earrings tutorial.

      The ornament SVG file is different from the earring file in just three ways. 1. The ornament is larger 2. the ornament has a pre-cut hole 3. the ornament has two sides to cut, a front and a back (glue the two sides together with a fabric or craft glue).

      Here’s the link to the snowflake earring tutorial:

      Do you need the ornament SVG file? If so, you can get it here:

      Thank you!

      1. Nancy Cece says:

        Love Love Love your tutorials Amy!!
        Thank you so much!!

        1. Hi, Nancy! Thank you so much for your comment, and for the love! I appreciate it! 🙂

  25. I enjoyed your class During the Holiday Makerfest and will be making matching earrings for my granddaughter and I.
    Looking forward to this event as well.
    Thank you for sharing with us.

    1. Hi, Krista!
      Thank you so much for your comment. I’m so glad you and your granddaughter will be wearing these matching earrings. That’s so fun! Thank you for being here, and for being excited about my event! I’m very excited, too.
      Thank you.


    1. Hooray, Yvonne! I’m busy getting everything ready for you! It’s going to be great! Amy

  27. Debbie Platt says:

    I loved your class. I have a maker and haven’t felt comfortable cutting leather yet. You changed all of that. Yesterday I went out and bought everything I need to make my first pair of earrings. Thanks for being a great teacher.

    1. Hi, Debbie! Thank you so much for your amazing comment. My heart is so happy after hearing that I’ve helped you in some small way. You’ve made my day! Thank you for reaching out, and for being a part of my little blog. 🙂 Amy

  28. HI! I was wondering what type of faux leather is the best. Also would you recommend buying a “kit” for the jewelry making tools? I am a newbie at this but your tutorials on the Holiday Maker Fest has me hooked! :o)

    1. Hi, Pam. Thank you for your message. I buy a lot of faux leather from Etsy and Amazon, and most of it works really well for earrings. I would suggest buying what you like and trying it out. If you are new, I would avoid using the Hobby Lobby faux leather “ribbon” at first – some of the colors can be tricky to cut.

      I have a list of my favorite Etsy shops to buy faux leather from at the bottom of My Favorite Products page here:

      Also, all of my tutorials include links to the exact materials I bought for each product.

      If by “kit for jewelry making tools” you mean the pliers, yes, that should be fine. If you mean a kit of faux leather packaged with the earring findings – that can be a good starting point, but be aware that the earring hooks and jump rings in kits aren’t always the best quality and may break easily. You may have to swap those out at some point. But a kit will give you a lot of material to play with at once, so that’s definitely a good place to start.

      Thank you.

  29. Diane Pryich says:

    Hi Amy,
    Thanks so much for your fun tutorials at Maker Fest. I’ve never had much interest in making earrings, or jewelry for that matter, until your tutorials. Now I’m excited to get started. In your tutorials, you had really pretty faux leather in red, gold, blue and silver but checked at and all they had were drab colors. Where do you suggest looking for the beautiful colors like the ones you used?
    Again, Thank you and I’m looking forward to the 10 days of crafting.

    1. Hi, Diane! Thanks for your message. I’m so glad you are interested in making earrings!

      I link to all of the exact supplies I use in each tutorial on my blog. So if you’ve clicked on a link and the item isn’t showing, it may be out of stock. I think the issue right now is after the MakerFest, a lot of the Cricut faux leather is sold out at the moment. I hope they will get more in soon!

      Thank you. Amy

  30. Thank you for the files and tutorial on Makerfest! I had materials to make both the gingerbread man and the snowflake ornaments and love the look of the finished products. Looking forward to your 10 days!

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed my MakerFest projects, Pamela! 🙂

  31. Liz Bacchus says:

    Love your earrings from faux leather, do you have a pen holder svg? With covid we are not allowed to share pens at work and I would love a holder to carry my pen on a lanyard.

    1. Hi, Liz! Thanks for your comment. I don’t have a pen holder SVG, but I like that idea. I’ll add it to my project idea list. Thanks again! 🙂

  32. Nikita Sanders says:

    So exciting! Love your videos-
    I watched it on YouTube but it wouldn’t show up for the 5 entries!

    1. Hi, Nikita! I’m sorry about that! #technology. I updated your entry count for you! Amy

  33. Raylene DeSanto says:

    Oh, what fun! Off to the craft store I go!

    Love yout easy to follow tutorials. Very thorough for all machines and levels of crafters! Thanks for sharing such cute creative crafts! Happy holidays!

    1. Hi, Raylene! Thank you so much for your comment. I really appreciate it! Happy holidays to you, too! 🙂

  34. Patricia McCutchan says:

    The gnome earrings are adorable. You have me so inspired to try making these. Your instructions are very clear. Thank you.

  35. Love the Gnomes. I dont have the items to make it right now But three questions
    1. can i use an iron to put backing on
    2. Do you always use foil backing? Is that the best?
    # 3. I forgot because l am old lol.

  36. I am loving the gnome earrings! I can’t wait to make these! Thank you for the step by step tutorial and video. I’m definitely a visual learner!

  37. Diane Osment Graham says:

    So adorable!! I have to go looking for iron on foil after work tomorrow evening. I’m so excited that you picked the Gnomes to be your first 10 design. I’m looking so forward to the next 9 days too. Thank you so much for sharing.

  38. Cindy Garel says:

    Thanks for the class it was very informative and I can’t wait to make me some gnome earrings.

  39. GAYLE SACKETT says:

    Enjoying your tutorials very much! In the keychain tutorial, I missed looking at a pair of your pretty earrings on you. Show them off every day 🙂

    1. Thank you, Gayle! I’m so glad you are enjoying the tutorials. 🙂

  40. HI Amy,
    I absolutely love the keychains. I am definitely making some of these for stocking stuffer / Christmas gifts!! Thanks so much for sharing such fun projects! 🙂
    Be well,

    1. I’m so glad you like this project, Chris! I am making some as stocking stuffers myself. 🙂

  41. Thank you so much for doing these for us!! It is so nice to be able to see everything step by step 🙂 Can’t wait to get started!
    I think I accidentally hit to stop getting your emails on the 10 day event but I will just go into your website everyday. Hopefully I will still be able to see them. Thanks Again!!!!!!!

    1. Hi, Debbie! Thanks for the kind words. I found your email address in my system and I fixed that for you, so you should be good to go with daily emails. 🙂 Thank you.

  42. Heather Callahan says:

    I absolutely love your crafts. Have you tried that same art glitter glue for bows? I am wondering if it would hold the clip or not.

    1. Thank you so much, Heather! I think something thicker would be better, like E6000 or Quick Hold. Art Glitter Glue is a little thin. 🙂

  43. Amy, I find I can follow you better on you tube , I can pause you and follow easily.

    1. Hi, Yvonne! That works for me! I love YouTube! I bet my husband wishes he could pause me sometimes. Ha ha ha! 🙂

  44. Thanks for sharing at MakerFest 2020. I enjoyed your presentation. I finally made those earrings (team both) and I am sooo impressed by them. I feel confident after your class, that I can make my own files for earrings. I loved that you had something on the back of the leather and layers on the top of the leather. I am so grateful to you for teaching me a new way. Thank you again.

  45. Ardyth Cummins says:

    Thanks so much for your tutorials and the inspiration to create so many unique pieces.

  46. Hi Amy!
    I discovered you at MakerFest and am loving all your tutorials. You are so informative and do excellent step by step instructions. I have purchased your digital book and can’t wait to get started on making some of them. I dabbled in earring making a while ago but got so frustrated that I gave up, your tip of putting htv on the back is awesome; it makes all the difference oh and taping the faux leather to the mat, that’s something I wasn’t doing.
    I do have a question. What is your policy on commercial use? I’ve been to your Etsy store and saw you need purchase a commercial license for those, but what about the free designs?
    Looking forward to the rest of your videos during your 10 Days of Crafting Event! Happy Crafting!

    1. Hi, Adan!

      Thanks for your message. All of my files are for personal use only, including the free ones. You are welcome to buy a commercial use license for the free designs if you’d like to see physical earrings made from the designs, however. So you would only have to buy the license, not the SVG file as well since it’s free! The link to see my available commercial licenses is here:

      Thank you.

  47. Thank you Amy for the tutorials. I love all of them & cannot wait to make them. I am missing a few supplies but I now feel confident to make earrings, thanks to you. Have a wonderful day.

    1. Hi, Tami! Thanks for your message. I hope you have a great day, too. I can’t wait to see what you make!


  48. I will be making earrings for my grandchildren’s teachers at school.

  49. Hi, Amy! #153 is not on your Resource Library. I have tried and tried. Even tried using Santa and Candy Cane instead of 153. Nothing. I love these earrings and hope to be able to make them; I have all of the materials. Perhaps it is a broken link? Please look into this for all of us (or at least tell me what I am doing wrong).

    1. Hi, Pamela.

      I’m so sorry your browser isn’t showing you the current version of the library page. You may need to refresh the library page, clear your device’s cache, or try viewing the library from another device or browser. You can also try logging in to the library again using this link:

      If you still can’t get it after trying the above, please reply and let me know which file you are trying to access so I can assist you further.

      Thank you.

  50. Diane Osment Graham says:

    I am so enjoying your 10 Days of Christmas. You do such a great job on these earrings. I’m trying to get some done to give as gifts on Thanksgiving. That way the receiver has a month to wear them.
    Thank you for sharing your great talent with us all.

    1. Hi, Diane! Thank you for your comment! It’s so smart of you to plan ahead and get gifts ready for Thanksgiving. I love that idea. Thank you so much for letting me know your plans! 🙂

  51. Hello lady, I love this, I can cut these by hand for Christmas stocking gift. I am so glad for this pattern, like I said still cutting by hand great idea for me to use. I love crafting.
    Thank you so much


  52. Hello Amy, I have enjoyed all of your videos. I just ordered my material for the earrings you have made. Can’t wait until I see what else you have for us.

    1. Hi, Ingrid! Thanks for your comment. I’m so excited you are going to make some earrings! I hope you’ll let me know how it goes. If you have any questions along the way, please ask, I’m always happy to help. You can reach me fastest via email at [email protected].

    I am going to make this a gift for my girls. I have one question for you. What blade do you use in Cricut Explore Air 2? I just started trying to do something with my daughter’s Cricut Explore Air 2. I enjoyed your video on all three Cricut cutting Machines. I will repeat looking at these videos. Thank you and Keep up the great teaching and Crafting my sister.

    1. Hi, Maurethia! Thanks for your comment. I really appreciate it. I make a lot of faux leather earrings with my Explore Air 2, and I use the standard, fine point blade that came with the machine. It’s the same blade I use with the Maker. So EVERY earring tutorial on my blog (with the exception of one genuine leather one) that I demonstrate with a Maker can also be made with an Explore Air 2! The only difference is you’ll need to turn your dial to Custom before selecting “Faux Leather (Paper Thin)” as the material setting. I hope that helps! Thank you.

  54. Thank you so much for these wonderful tutorials. I have fought with faux leather since day 1, so I am looking forward to trying again. I haven’t view your Maker Fest presentation, yet, but I am looking forward to watching and picking up new tips. Very thankful I bought the pass so I could watch at a later date!

    1. Hi, Kathleen! Thanks for your comment. I’m so glad you are enjoying my tutorials. That means a lot to me! I got the pass for the MakerFest too, and I’m glad I did. There are still so many projects I want to go through and make. 🙂

  55. Debra A Harwell-Braun says:

    I’m excited to finally get started using my Cricut. Thank you for the inspiration.

    1. Hi, Debra! That sounds great. Thank you for the kind words, it makes me so happy to hear you are going to get started. Please let me know if you have any questions along the way. Thank you.

  56. Amy, I just wanted to let you know that all your hard work is noticed and much appreciated, especially during this national pandemic and with holidays approaching. There is enough stress to go around and you are making a difference in others’ lives. Thank you.

    1. Hi, Gina! Wow. Thank you so much for your comment. I am really touched by your kind words. It is absolutely my pleasure. I love helping and teaching others. Thank you again, you made my day. 🙂 Amy

  57. Thank you so much Amy, I so love the faces on these and want to use as gift tags.

    Such a crafty lady.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment, Yvonne! You are always so sweet. 🙂 Have a great day.

    Hi Amy
    I just started following you after Makerfest. I really enjoyed making the Snowflake Earrings. My friends and family started requesting them and one wanted a matching necklace. I am looking forward to trying the other patterns you have created.

  59. Marilyn Jones says:

    I have always wanted a Cricut Maker,I think now i will ask Santa
    for one!

  60. Nan Spier says:

    I’m thoroughly enjoying your videos with the tips and tricks to using HTV. Do you use that so the layers stick together better than using Permanent Vinyl?

  61. Sanjuana Rebollar says:

    Hi Amy I’ve been enjoying your 10 days but I haven’t been able to get your svg files since day 4. I was able to get day 1.2 and 3. I hope you can tell me how to get the other files.

  64. Jennifer Markee says:

    I cut faux leather on my Cricut for the first time yesterday, 100% because I have gained the confidence to do so through Amy’s tutorials. I’m making the fall leaves necklace, and I cannot wait to show it off! I have wanted a fall leaves necklace for years but could never find one that fit my vision. Now I can make my own! Thank you for the confidence, Amy!!

    1. Wow, Jennifer! Thank you so much for the kind words! You made my day. I’m so glad you have gained some more crafting confidence, and I’m thrilled to be a very small part of your creative journey. Thank you. 🙂

    Thank you for the 10Days of Crafting Event. I first saw you at The Holiday Maker Fest and I really enjoyed your way of instructing, you’re very thorough and leave nothing to question so I have learned quite a lot from you that even if I don’t make earrings that skill set is still very useful in other projects so Thanks!

Even though I did not catch all the tutorials on the day they were posted I will be binge watching the videos later to check them out and chose which ones I can tackle. I cannot wait to get the Cicut Maker, maybe Santa will be extra nice with me this year 😉 thanks again for all that you share! Have a wonderful day and stay safe!

    1. Ah! Forgot about a suggestion for a future project: kawaii inspired animals, I got a niece that is into the KPOP craze and I am sure she would love a collection of earrings or maybe some poinsettias (unless of course I miss them some how in your library 😬) thanks again for this event, the giveaways and the files! Have an amazing day!

      1. Hi, Liz! Thanks for your message, and the ideas. I also love kawaii inspired animals! I do have some poinsettias in the works, so stay tuned! Have a great evening! Amy
