On our trip to Philly this weekend my little sister took us to the Philadelphia Museum of Art where we got the coolest admission tags ever. OK, I’m not a huge museum goer, so maybe all museums give this cool little things out. Either way, I thought they were super neat. Depending on the day you go to the museum, you get a different colored tag to fold over your collar. Basically, it let’s the guards know you paid to get in and are allowed to be there. Some obnoxious, snobby people like to give the guards a hard time about wearing these on their collars, but I thought they were freakin’ awesome. Pretty much as soon as we got them I called dibs on them for crafting.
After we got home last night, I dug these bad boys out of my purse and quickly made an awesome pair of souvenir earrings.
First thing I needed to do was to cut off the tabs. The tin was thin, so I snipped the tabs off with scissors.
Next, I pierced a hole in the top using a rubber mallet and a nail.
I flattened the sharp edges with some flat jewelry pliers, then added a jump ring and ear hooks to complete my set of souvenir earrings.
How easy was that?!
Adorable, yes? I love that when I wear them I’ll be able to remember our fun trip to Philly with Em.
My older sister just moved to Chicago, so I guess that is next on our list 🙂
