As a private tutor, I travel from home to home, bringing the stuff I need to work with my students with me. To be prepared for any eventuality, my kit can be large. I was pleased, therefore, to find this brand new "office in a binder" at the thrift store - for $2, it was mine!

Then, the other day, when I was waiting for a student to finish working on some math problems, I started playing with some of the supplies to make some earrings. I used only what was in the kit to make one earring, then I made the second one when I was home and able to take photographs.

Step 1: Tools and Materials

You will need:
  • Two paper clips. I used black ones because those were the ones that came with my kit, but I recommend using plain metal ones if you have little holes like in my ears.
  • Tape flags, post-it style
  • Staple remover
  • Pencil or pen

Wow. That would HURT!! LOL.
