    Step 1

    Cut out the interfacing, thin cardboard or leather to a shape/shapes that can be stuck to the backs of a pair of earrings. Experiment by holding them up to your ears to check what the shape will look like once attached. I cut these shapes to look like leaves because the earrings look a little like flowers, but you can make whatever shape you like.
