You may have seen some fun leather earrings cut out in the shape of a petal. Why not take it a step further and add some extra pizazz! Just adding some chain and a couple of crystals gives them a little bit of sparkle.

Make a paper template in the shape of a petal. Mine was about 2" in length and 1.5" in width at the widest point.
Trace with a small black Sharpie on the top of the leather. You may think, "Why not the back?" If you cut from the front of your leather, you get a smoother, more clean cut!
Cut out your shape. The Lindstrom shears work great not only for metal sheet, but also for leather.
Mark a couple of spots about 1/4" down from the top, but towards the side. Using the leather hole punch, punch one hole on each upper side of the petal.
Cut 2 pieces of chain about 1-3/4". Cut 2 pieces of chain about 2".
Place the smaller 3mm jump ring on each of the top chains.
