DIY: earring holder

I have been looking for a cute earring holder ever since I decided to get my ears pierced a few months ago.  Do they not make them anymore or something???  I can't tell you how many places I went to with absolutely no results.  Finally I looked up "earring holder" on Pinterest and found a picture of an old letterpress box with hooks on it for earrings.  Bingo!  I took it one step further and added the cork board for the earrings that can't be draped onto a hook.  I think the solution is genius and really beautiful!

The entire project came to $14.75.
$10 letterpress box
$2.50 cork
$2.25 hooks

I love it and am so excited to hang it in my bathroom!  Now all I need is more earrings. :)

UPDATE: So, thanks to my awesome friends and a surprise birthday party, I've now completely filled this thing up.  Maybe I'll make another!
