Well, i desperately needed a new earring holder that was flat, because my last one didnt fit all of my earrings, but i didnt want to spend $20 on one.  Instead, i found some items in my house, and created a new one!

It's made of an old trivial pursuit game that was never played in my house, and i just used a box knife to cut out the shape.  I used my dad's wire that he had laying around, but i think its supposed to be used to patch holes in screen doors. Oops, he doesnt need to know that. Anyway, i just painted it in order to remind me of my childhood. I love classic nickelodeon shows, so i used characters from all of my favorites.  I'll stop blabbering and i'll get on with the pictures.


the entire thing










i made the center the nickelodeon logo, but its kind of hard to see if its not on a white backround


finally, all of my earrings on there

im happy i finally have a good earring holder, and it was really simple to make.  just a board game, hot glue, paints, and wire mesh. if anyone has any comments or questions, they would be greatly appreciated!

i wish they would create a channel where they played the classic nicktoons. they had gas where they played legends of the hidden temple and double dare, but then they got rid of it.  Embarrassed
