So in an effort for mother's day gifts, I tried to make an assortment of paper jewelry for my mother (I know, i know, pretty cheap, but she still says she loves it when I make her things). While trying different things, I tried paper quilling. I really liked the look of the tight circles and the almost 70s look to the jewelry (which is her generation).

Step 1: Supplies

To do this project, you need a paper quilling tool (about 3 dollars at AC Moore), and paper quilling paper. Choose the paper according to your color scheme. If you like the jewelry, it may make a nice wedding party set for the bridesmaids, if they match the color scheme. You don't technically need the paper quilling tool, but it is slotted so it makes the process easier.

Cut the strips of paper according to how wide you want each section of the circle to be. Experiment to see what you like. If you are making earrings, this is the time to plan ahead and cut the strips to the same length for each earring.

<p>i have made it</p><p>thanks for the steps</p>
Can u post a picture?
<p>can u pls tell me wat can use for top coat oother products</p>
<p>Nice design, very 70's look. </p>
I thought so too. They were a gift to my mother...a true product of the 70s.
<p>I love these.</p>
<p>Omg! these looks very neat an gorgeous...</p>
I love these!!! I've been really into making paper beads. Do you think I could use a tooth pick instead of the tool you used?
Definitely. The only advantage to the tool is the slotted end.
<p>This is a wonderfully creative design. And I love how you used paper for the entire piece, including the ring! Did your mother like it?</p>
She did...and so (surprisingly) did my mother in law.
Did she? :D I sense another gift-making in your future, if not already.
<p>I loved the designs, very creative :)</p>
Beautiful, love the use of colour in the blue ones
Yeah, the blue is my favor so far. I'm going to try green next.
Thx, the colors can be cool
