Intro: Cardboard Earrings
So unique and elegant, these earrings have been successful on my website and a lot of people asked me how to make some by themselves!
I made them with colored paper and cardboard.
Enjoy the video!
Step 1: Materials
2 strips of colored paper (10” long). I use craft quilling paper 3/8-inch.
2 strips of corrugated cardboard 3/8- inch x 10”
2 hypo-allergenic fish hooks earrings
2 jump rings 6 mm
Craft pliers tool
Step 2: Make 2 Rolls With the Quilling Paper
Trap one strip of paper in the quilling tool and wrap it in twisting gently.
Put a pinch of glue every 2 or 3 twists.
Step 3: Set Up the Corrugated Strips
Pinch a strip of corrugated paper with a plier then wrap it on itself quickly, just to make it more easy to handle/ workable.
Step 4: Roll...
Put a pinch of glue on one corrugated strip then glue one rolled paper.
Step 5: Roll Again...
Wrap it around the paper in putting a little bit of glue every half twist.
Maintain a few seconds at the end
Step 6: Add the Fish Hooks Earrings
Open a ring with a plier and insert it in one corrugation.
Add the fish hook and close the ring.
Do the same thing for the other earrings!
