Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

For this project, you will need these items.
Give some consideration to where and how you want the toy to hang, and then carefully drill a hole in the toy, using the 1mm drill bit. This was the only part of the build process that my daughter could not do.
Repeat the above process for both toys, as illustrated.
Now, using the pliers, carefully open the loop of the oval jumpring.
Thread this through the hole in the toy and then thread the finding through the jumpring before closing it with the pliers.
Do this for both earrings, like this.
Finished. It's really that quick and easy!
