I’m going to post a wee tutorial on something I make quite a bit.
How to: Origami Jewellery!!
And when I say origami jewellery, I mean little paper origami used as pendants/earrings!!
You will need:
1: Make your wee origami. It can be anything. It could be a frog, a fish, a crane, it could even be a tiny dino!! Use your imagination!!
2: Figure out where you want the origami to hang from.
3: Poke a wee hole to thread an eyepin through, using the pin/needle.
4: Dip the head of the eyepin into the glue, and thread it through the hole you made in the previous step.
5: Coat the entire origami in glue, and find a place where it can hang up to dry.
6: Once dry, you can thread any beads onto the eyepin if you’re making earrings or a pendant.
7: Make a loop at the top, and attach the earring hooks if you’re making earrings, or attach a jump ring if you’re making a pendant.
The great thing about origami jewellery is that you can make lots at a time, and they will be totally different from everything else in the shops nowadays!!
Now go on and show off your amazing origami skills!!!
