No paint today, just folding-- teeny shirt earrings




I have not been painting much lately since I have been traveling and very busy with things, but I have been folding.  Folding you ask?  Origami is one of my favorite pastimes and I am happy to say I have brought many smiles to wait staff when I leave my tips in the form of…stars and animals and jewelry—created simply by folding a few dollar bills. (Or higher denominations)

I don’t only fold money, however, I also fold using the standard Japanese origami paper in the colorful prints and hues.  Which reminds me that if you are a man…you don’t have many choices when you want to deck out do you?  Your wife puts on a silky red dress, or a printed sheath and you go get your boring black or gray suit.  The only time you get to let your neatly shorn hair down is when you are on vacation and you can pull out that loud, and so cliché Hawaiian shirt.

Well, guys you gave me an idea and I started folding mini shirts that so remind me of the Hawaiian ones.  But what can I do with these one-inch high mini-shirts?  Sorry guys it isn’t going to perk up your wardrobe on the drab days of upcoming winter…but it will perk up your wives and girlfriends when they wear them on their ears.

If you would like a tutorial on how to make these mini shirt earrings…just leave it in the comments.  And soon, just like magic the instructions will appear…right here--crystal clearly. 

Have a great weekend!

Crystal - will your great, creative ideas never end! They're great!

(Just wondered whether you could make something like that for men's cufflinks to brighten up their dreary suits - or maybe men don't wear cufflinks any more?)
