Quilled Paper Ombre Earrings
Step 1: Whatchur Gonna Need:
Paper Quilling Tool
Ombre Quilling Paper
E-6000 adhesive glue
Glitter Mod Podge and something to apply it
(We used a toothpick)
Step 2: Let's Get Rolling!
Now, place one end in the slot of the quilling tool and gently start to roll the strip around itself. When I say gently, I mean like, "restoring the Mona Lisa" gently.
DO NOT (*flashes lights) I repeat (*sounds alarms) DO NOT roll it too tightly at first or it will not come off the quill tool! Then you'll lose faith in yourself and think you are a quilling failure when all you needed was some good old fashion practice. So-- don't roll it too tightly at first. As the bead begins to get larger, you can then begin to tug a little snugger so the wraps are nice and uniform.
Roll, roll, roll...
Step 3: Get Gluey
By the time the strip is all rolled up, it should look like a neat little disc and the ombre should naturally show in the rolls,
based on how your quilling paper is printed. At the very end of the strip, podge it all up so it sticks to itself and does not unravel.
Step 4: Time to Wiggle
Grab your toothpick and glob that beautiful, glittery podge right on top of the bead.
Let it dry. Turn it over and plop a wee, tiny dab of the E-6000 glue on the back and adhere an earring pad to it.
Step 5: Make More Stuff!
Have fun and until next time-
