  • How to make a pair of pop tab earrings. Eco Friendly Earth Earing - Step 1
    Step 1

    I suck at MS paint, don't judge me :D I was just going with the flow so I didn't take pictures, but I hope you get the idea.

    Okay, so, pretty simple, very fun.

    Take your handy dandy blue baking clay, and roll it up into a little handy dandy blue ball.

    Stick your safety pin, or needle, or whatever else you have through the north pole down to the south pole [the world is currently sumberged at the moment, bud no fear, land is about to appear].

    Now take you handy dandy green baking clay and create cute little land-masses :D Jut gently push them on. Be sure not to disfigure the world, or we may fly off our axis.

  • Step 3

    Bake them at 275 degrees [130 C] for 15 minutes for every 6mm of thickness.

  • Step 4

    Take them out [don't forget to turn the oven off! :D] and let them cool for five minutes.

    During those five minutes, find your can tops [I WAS going to use green and blue, but I lost my blue, so I used green and plain].
