When I make my earring cards, I use a scrapbook punch for the cardstock back. I use sticky dots to add a cut out cardstock front (to make the cards sturdy).
I have all my info printed on the front of my earring cards, and on the back I write the components used to make the earrings – and the price on a sticker that can be taken off for gift giving.

Lovely Effect with Double Cards
I love the double-card look! I would never have thought of that, but it’s a neat effect and probably makes your cards sturdier too.
Thanks for sharing your lovely cards – and this great idea!
Looks wonderful, I have been looking for a scrapbood punch that size. Where can I obtain one and about how much do the cost?
I have found all of my earring card and tag supplies at Michaels.

I’m also wanting to make our own, in order to put them in a store, I want a cohesive “look” that ties cards, tags, etc., all together. Do you also hang these? If so, how. firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a great look. I just used plastic earring displays for my earring stand but I’m going to try this out instead. Love it!
Where to find earring card hangers
Rings and Things carries the earring card backs. They are self stick, but I do cut a little off the bottom, (the punch will not go through the plastic).
I go to the Rings and Things trunk shows to stock up on stone. If you spend over $100 at a trunk show you get a coupon for free shipping. That is when I stock up on supplies or buy heavy items like a bench block.
These are lovely – but what are sticky dots?
Awesome Earring Cards

Your earring cards are awesome! I love them. Thank you for sharing them with all of us!
Hiya, Jen and Teri and all the rest of you. To make the wee holes for the earring wires you can use a shoemaker’s awl and you can find all sizes at places like Rona Lansing, Home Depot etc. Clover makes a really good awl as well. Put the paper on a block of wood, place the awl where you want the hole, give it a quick bang of your hammer: and bob’s your uncle, you have a small hole for the earring wire.
Or you can get a punch set used in bookbinding. I got my set for $1.00CAD at Dollarama – where everything is a buck. It’s my favourite store.
Well, that’s what I think.
