I bought earrings at DAISO for $2, took out all the dangly stuff with a pair of small pliers, saved one round red gem each and attached the stretching kitties I cut out of gold paper with a pen knife.
I dropped the knife and cut my knee -_- klutz. I'm lucky the tip broke off before then. I might have bled much more.
I colored the white sides with gold felt tip marker (same I used on Scarborough Fair).
Yes I know it's the night before STGCC!
*runs to see if I can still rush the charms*
