How to Make This
Easy Necklace Holder / Hanger:

You take cardstock in pretty colors or designs (whatever suits your design or display) and cut it in 4"x2" strips.

You can take your cardstock to Office Depot or Office Max or any store like that, and they will cut it in strips for you at very little cost - and they are even. :-)

Fold one of these strips in half.

Now it open up again.

On each edge of the crease, punch out a hole so it goes off the paper (as shown in the middle photo above).

Now thread the necklace through these holes.

Fold the strip again on the fold line with the necklace inside, and staple at the top (as shown in the last photo above).

Just below the staple, punch a hole in the middle for hanging.

(Optional: punch two extra holes to hold matching earrings, as shown in photo.)

Put a small label with your name on it, and there ya have it - ready to hang on any hook.
