Setting Up Earring Designs in Silhouette Studio

You want to start by either creating your earring designs or finding leather earring templates.  If you're just starting out I'd definitely recommend using some leather earring templates specifically designed for Silhouette.  There are lots of options on our sister site So Fontsy.

Silhouette SVG, Cricut SVG, Commercial use SVG, Silhouette cut files, Cricut Cut Files 

Open the designs in Silhouette Studio. Size the earring designs to your liking.

For each earring you will need both a front and back. These will be put together so you don't see the back of the faux leather sheets while wearing the earrings.

Select the design > right click > Duplicate. Select the duplicate > right click > Flip Horizontally.

Now for each set of earrings you should have four shapes: a front and back for each earring.

Cutting Faux Leather Sheets with Silhouette

Open the Send panel. Hopefully you created a custom material cut setting for faux leather, which you can pick from the material list. If you did not, the best Silhouette cut settings for Cricut brand faux leather sheets are:

Put your faux leather sheet on a Silhouette cutting mat and load it into your Silhouette CAMEO or Portrait.
