Our favorite trick is to use heat transfer vinyl (HTV) for the small intricate details and then press onto the faux leather backing. This can be a life saver when you are having issues with delicate designs tearing your faux leather sheets.

 

 

 
 

 


Once you have cut the earring bases out of the faux leather and the intricate parts of the design out of the HTV, use the Cricut Mini Easy Press to apply the HTV directly onto the faux leather base. 

 

 
Place the cut HTV piece right on the leather earring base and press for a few seconds until you can easily remove the carrier sheet. 

 

Now make the earrings double-sided by running the back of the earrings through the Xyron then press onto the front. 
 

 

 

  
Make the holes for your jewelry hardware using a small 1mm punch

 


 
We love how the intricate details of the spider web stand out when using htv on out faux leather earrings!
