Follow these steps to make these fun ribbon earrings:

2: Fold the ribbons in half to create a loop and place the crimp end over the folded ends.
3: Squash the crimp around the ends of the ribbons using the Flat Nose Pliers.
4: Repeat steps 1-3 for the remaining ribbons.
5: Once the crimp is squashed in place, add an earring hook to the loop at the top of the crimp for each earring.

6: Repeat steps 1-5 with the remaining ribbons to complete the second earring.
