Steps:

DIY Tassel Earrings1. Go to Cricut Design Space and open up this Make It Now Project. I love working with Make It Now projects because the instructions are easy to follow but they’re still customizable. Size your earrings in Cricut Design Space and switch from the Deep Cut Blade to the Rotary Blade. With its precision cutting ability, it can turn within a quarter of an inch to achieve a cut that scissors never could.
