supplies for making book earrings

Start by twisting the bottom of your headpin into a spiral. This doesn’t have to be perfect or fancy – it is going inside the book, and will be hidden in the final book earrings. It just needs to be smaller than your mini book.

Check the fit of the spiral in the book. The eye should come out right at the top of the spine. Make any adjustments as needed.

Put glue between two pages. Not so much it squishes out everywhere – just a few dabs is fine.

Put the eyepin back in, and close the book. Wipe away any glue that runs out, and secure with a binder clip.

Allow to dry, and your earrings are done! If you like, you can draw small pictures, add little notes, or just leave them as is. You can even suggest to the recipient that they can add their own notes. Perhaps a reading wishlist?
