Baubble Origami Earrings

Origami Earrings

These particular origami earrings are a little different then a typical origami project.  First you get to decorate your own paper and then work with paper in the shape of circles.  But there is folding involved so I am still calling them origami earrings.

What you will need:

Card stock paper or you can use book pages

Watercolors and/or acrylic paint

Glue stick

1″ hole puncher

Beading wire

Ear hooks

Random beads

Bead stoppers

Ear nose pliers

Wire cutter

Technique:

Decorate the card stock paper with marks, dots, lines using watercolors and acrylic paint. If you don’t have card stock paper you can use book pages and you don’t have to further decorate the pages.Origami earrings tutorial

Using 1″ hole puncher punch holes.  You will need 10 circles per pair of earrings i.e. 5 for each earring.Origami earrings

Using glue stick glue the sides of the circles together.  You will need 5 circles.Origami earrings

When gluing the last circle you will join it to the first one.  It will look like a bauble.Origami earrings
