Handmade Presents: Earrings and Christmas Card Gift boxes

A very easy present to make if you have the right tools, is jewelry.  With a couple of needle nosed pliers and cutters especially sized for jewelry plus some beads, hooks, and wires, you can easily make a very nice looking pair of earrings!  I dabble in amateur jewelry along with sewing, knitting, and other crafting, so I have a lot of jewelry making supplies.  Since jewelry is easy to make, I decided I'd make some for aunts, cousins, and my step-mother-in-law

And because I didn't want to spend money on boxes, I made my own boxes out of old Christmas cards (which you can make yourself if you follow this link).

 Mostly, I just made the earrings based on the colors I had and then decided which relative would like that set, but for my sister-in-law...
...I made special Steelers colored earrings because she's obsessed.  It was hard for me to do since I'm an Eagles fan, but love breaks through football boundaries.
