• Cut paper rectangles sized 3cm x 5cm. You will need two of paper A and eight each of B and C. Fold each rectangle into a triangle following the picture guide in PaperCrafter issue 62 (find it in page 34).
• All triangles are assembled the same way round to give a flat back and ridged top surface. Start by pushing both points of a C triangle into one sleeve of a B triangle. Push another C triangle into the other sleeve.
• Make the third row by pushing a B triangle into the two inner sleeves of the C triangles. Push both points of a B triangle into both the outer sleeves of the C triangles.
• Start decreasing the width of the rows by fitting two C triangles into the centre sleeves of row three, leaving the two outer sleeves empty. Take a single triangle A and push into the inner sleeves of row four, leaving the outer sleeves empty as before.
• Make the second of your paper earrings in the same way and coat each one with two coats of PVA or decoupage glaze. Pierce a hole in the top point of the first triangle and fit jump rings and earwires through these.
