Colorful Newspaper Earrings - With Gel Press

There are not many printed newspapers out there anymore, but when I get a grocery store flyer or a stack of old local papers, I always grab some for my projects. This is a simple paper mache craft that is light as a feather and also hard as a rock when it's dry!  When you paint it with a Gel Press, you'll get some amazing effects!  Make earrings or a funky necklace and definitely go color crazy since summer is right around the corner!  Say it with me, sweet friends...Use what you have and always Make Your Mark!
 These fit perfectly in a regular envelope, so pop a pair in the mail for a friend!
Mix shapes and colors and layer, layer, layer!
I used 5 pieces of newspaper and then topped it off with my painted sheet
