4 strips of quilling paper (any color of your choice)
Earring hooks with rings
You and Your Amazing Hands !
Things to remember
STEP 1: Take your 4 quilling paper strips. Name each of your strips as A, B, C and D.
STEP 2: Take strips A and C, glue each of their ends together, forming the A-C strip. Repeat for D and B strips, forming the D-B strip. Stick the D-B strip on top of the A-C strip so that it looks like a perfect cross (STEP 2 in the above diagram).
STEP 3: Gently bring strip C to Region A. Make the fold tight.
STEP 4: Gently bring strip D to Region B. Make the fold tight.
STEP 5: Gently bring strip A to Region C. Make the fold tight.
STEP 6: Gently bring strip B to Region D. Make sure to slide strip B under the loop made by strip C in STEP 3. Refer STEP 6 below. Make the fold tight.
In these steps I exchanged strips A with strip C, and strip B with strip D.
But only the names are different, the steps remain the same.
Front view after the first fold.
Behind view after the first fold.
This is what results after repeating the above 6 steps another 5-6 times.
These 6 steps complete one full fold. Repeat these steps as many times as you want till you are satisfied with the size of the earring.
Once you are satisfied with the number of folds, cut off the extra quilling paper and stick them on the base formed with all the folds.
Now stick the two ends of the folds together to get the circular shape.
There you are 😁 you made one cute little boondoggling earring !! Now do the same for the other one 🙂
