Creative Project Episode 2 - Earrings

I finally located some proper tweezers to do this project with, so here goes.

How to make earrings with origami lucky stars:

1. You need:
- 2 paper stars
- 2 earring hooks, 2 earring pins (these come in the little baggies you see)
- tweezers/tongs with a narrow tip
- long, kind of thick needle
- beads (optional)

2. Use the needle to poke a hole in the stars. Wiggle it around a bit to make the hole large enough for the pins.

3. Open up the ends of the pins a little so you can slip the hooks onto them. Then close them back up.

4. Put your stars onto the pins, maybe with some beads as well. Leave about 3mm at the end.

5. Bend the ends into a small loop. Admire your new earrings!
