Travel Earring Book
I'm traveling again next week. I've been able to do a lot of traveling this year, certainly more than usual. But I'm always thinking of ways to make it easier. Bring less by only bringing things that can do double duty. Use convenient storage. Pack more and better snacks. For me the secret to traveling well is to do enough planning ahead of time to have some options, but being totally open to whatever wonderful, unexpected things come my way while I'm in a new or unusual place. I admit it's a fine balance that sometimes works out better than others.
I saw this tutorial for a little book to hold earrings on Made By Mazipan. It's perfect for travel! I always end up dumping out a bag of jewelry to try and find the match to whatever earrings I want to wear.
I made mine a little smaller than hers, but it's only to hold a handful of earrings in any case. And I didn't put the velcro between the foam sheets like she did. I'm not entirely sure what the point of keeping them closed like that is. Also, I put a button closure on the outside instead of velcro. I just have a thing for buttons really.
Seriously how cute is that rainbow cloud? I want to put that on everything now.
