Travel Earring Book Tutorial
All you need to make one, is some felt squares and some trim if you want to decorate the front. You really could even get away with hot gluing this, if sewing isn't your thing! I found that the cheaper felt, like you get in the kids craft section works the best to poke earrings through, because it has a looser weave.
Stack them, and sew straight down the middle.
I sewed a strip of lace down the front just for pretties.
Now all you have to do is stick your earrings in it! Depending on how the earring post is made, you might have to wiggle it a bit to get it to poke through. Types, like hoops, that connect to themselves I just pinned on the edges of the "pages".
Now mind you, this isn't an absolutely perfect system, the earrings still will flop around a bit. I just pack the book flat in my bag, and it works wonderfully. It keeps them organized and tidy so it makes me happy!
Do you have a good method you use to pack small things? Do share!
