I was working on a project that involved folding paper units, and later I realized that I had cut out and folded too many of them. Unwilling to waste paper, I decided to come up with something to utilize the excess, and this is what my imagination dreamt up, which is funny because I don't even have pierced ears. ^^ Even so, I had fun making these, and they look like the perfect present for one of my friends whose birthday is coming up...

Step 1: Materials

  • origami paper
  • headpins OR wire (I'll show you how to make your own) (paperclips will work)
  • earring wires OR wire (I'll show you how to make your own)
  • pliers
  • OPTIONAL: beads
  • glue
  • pencil + ruler + scissors
  • box or book with a crisp, 90 degree angle
<p> Its Simply Gorgeous!</p>
<p>Thank you! :)</p>
<p>I love these! It's always cool to see people looking at ways of reusing materials and offcuts that come from projects. Thanks for posting it.</p>
<p>Thanks for your nice comment! I hate to waste paper so I wanted to come up with this way of using the extra pieces. </p>
Man earrings?
<p>Ombr&eacute; means that the colors are blended to have a fade-in effect. Hombre is Spanish for man. ^^ </p>
