Transforming Strips of Paper!

Change is the only unchanging something in this universe.
Everything changes over the time!

Quilling is the beautiful art which transforms strips of paper into something awesome! That awesome something can be anything from a handmade card or a showpiece to some gorgeous jewelry like earrings, neck piece, rings or anything and everything that your creativity delivers you!

Today I am presenting the transformation of paper into one of my creations. I take quilling strips of 3 different colors- Red, Black, and White.


Let us see what transformation does these little pieces undergo.

Actually, I’m fond of making earrings and handmade cards by the technique of Quilling and the feeling that it furnish when you use something that is being crafted all by yourself is priceless to me.

The paper strips are coiled to form different shapes and pressed in between fingers to apply a little force to deform them a bit and finally glued together in the process to make desired shapes. It demands a fair amount of patience and time from you if you are into it. And it’s worthy, in my opinion!

Here is what the strips of paper transformed to:


They are now kind of circular danglers with some stuffings 😀 which are finally embellished with some white half beads. The way in which the paper strips transforms into an eye-catchy earring gives me immense pleasure of creation and I admire using handmade products!

Do you have any such hobby? Would you mind sharing it with me?
