Organizing earrings

You all have seen Leila, my earring organizer. I use her for earrings that have those backings. I don't like putting them in a drawer since they get moved around.
What to do with those other earrings that are looped though? My solution? A frame, some cardboard, nice fabric and tulle. Put them all together and you get this nifty earring holder.

You can make it as big or small. Hang it on the wall if you want or just use a stand for it. You can also substitute the tulle for cork board and you can just push your earrings in. I need to upgrade my frame to a larger one but for now, it'll suffice. Now I can see my earrings and not have to look for them in a jewlery box all mixed up with other earrings. Ahhh, the small pleasures organization gives me. Try it if you're tired of searching for the mate of a loose pair of earrings. You'll be happy and it looks cute too!
A bientot!
