I'm not quite sure how long they take from start to finish because that would include the drawing process.  Sometimes I spend hours on an image - sometimes I spend 15 minutes or less.

When I first started making the earrings & hairpins this way, I was winging it and didn't have a "process" - so it took a long time. 

Now I'm pretty efficient about it, so the post-print work itself doesn't take long.  But there's glue and paint drying times in there that can take a while.  Plus, I don't tend to work start to finish in one sitting.

Long story, short - I dunno!   Cheesy

You could also use clear packing tape for this instead of the xyron machine.

Thanks Smiley

I don't have pics of the process, but basically it's just:

Drawn in graphics program (I use Illustrator)
Printed on glossy photo paper
Laminated (I use a xyron machine)
Cut out carefully around design
Glued (superglue gel works great) to 1 layer craft foam & let dry
Cut out so foam doesn't extend past the image
Glued eyepin between dried layer and another layer of craft foam
Trimmed excess foam
Painted on back & sides with Scribbles 3 Dimensional black paint
