Paper Crimped Hoop Earring – DIY
Take one strip of 5mm yellow color quilling paper and your papercrimper. Insert the paper between the wheels of your crimper tool. Gently rotate using the handle. Now you will get the paper crimped.
You can repeat this process twice if you want small crimps on your paper.
Now we want to make a tight loop. Use half strip of green colorquilling paper for this loop. I used a quilling form to make this big hoop.
You can use [easyazon_link asin=”B00JG99DRM” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”jgazn-20″]Quilled Creations Border Buddy[/easyazon_link] or a small bottle cap to make this loop.
Now attach the crimped paper to the green loop using a glue.
Now we need to press one side to get the tear drop shape.
Create a small loop using half strip of 3mm quilling paper and attach to the earring.
Attach jump ring to the small loop and attach the ear hook.
Now our paper crimped earring is ready and follows the same step to make the pair.
You can try different color combinations according to your dress color.
Protecting Your Paper Jewelry
Keep your paper jewelry in any air-tight zip bag or any other moist free place (use an air-tight container or jewelry boxes) .On the other hand, you can give a coating using clear nail polish .
