Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

You will need some of these.
I cut the milk bottle in half.
Half a milk bottle.
Using the scissors, cut the milk bottle into three main parts to start with. I do this since as it provides 3 different types of material/texture to work with.
Cut out the shapes, as illustrated. See MiY Instructions for Milk Bottle Earring Square & Totem.Square: http://www.co-oproduct.org/component/mtree/plastic/milk-bottles/milk-bottle-earring-sqaure/galleryTotem: http://www.co-oproduct.org/component/mtree/plastic/milk-bottles/milk-bottle-earring-totem/gallery
Loosely tie each of the milk bottle shapes. Do this loosely, so that you can adjust them before tightening at the end.
Adjust and tighten the thread
