Here’s an easy but fun pair of earrings that you can make for a friend, a loved one, or yourself! The origami model is called a Japanese Brocade, designed by Minako Ishibashi. It’s fairly simple to fold, but making them at a small scale might require a little extra patience.
If folding tiny pieces of paper isn’t your style, you can still follow these instructions with larger sheets to make elegant Christmas ornaments for your tree. Instead of attaching earring hooks at the end, you can use some ribbon to hang up your origami ball!
