I am back with another Paper quilled earrings. This is no hi-fi and one can do it in ten minutes flat, including glue and stuff.
I have made a quilled Butterfly earrings before. Check it HERE.
I actually didn’t have any design in mind when I made these. I was making random yellow circles with some red paper strip lying around and next thing I know I had these earrings in my hand 😀
I like how they turned out. These may not be perfect but I love ’em.
I love doing crafts in my free time. And I love jewellery… Seriously I have like a gazillion earrings in my stash and I’m still on lookout for more 😀 So one day just for fun I tried my hands on quilling and thought of DIYing some jewellery. That is when I came up with quilled earrings. The first earrings I made were grapes sort of which I used to wear A LOT and got lot of compliments as well 🙂
I love bright things, be it clothes or jewellery or just anything. That is why I chose to use bright colors to make these. These will make a good statement piece if you are not wearing too many colors. Plus butterflies are supposed to be bright and full of color, right?
This is how it looks. Sorry for the bad lighting.
I have many such DIY jewellery coming up. Stay tuned. 🙂

Don’t we all hate it when our favorite little colored treasures are crumbled into pieces. Not only it breaks our heart, it also ruin other colors present in the palette. Well worry not sweets, I tell you a quick way to fix this.
Things you will need:
– Zip lock pouch/ any clear polythene piece
– Hand sanitizers/vodka/ rubbing alcohol (I used 70% ethyl alcohol as I have easy access)
– Some tissues to clear the mess
1. Take the broken eyeshadow and empty the contents onto the clear polythene with the help of toothpick. It is better to take the pan out if it is present in a palette.
2. Fold the polythene piece and crush the eyeshadow into powder. Don’t worry messing the crumbled eyeshadow even more. It will only get better in the end.
3. Add a few drops of alcohol to this powder to get a thick paste. Remember not to make it too dilute. The consistency should be thick.
4. Transfer the eyeshadow paste back into the pan with the help of the back end of a spoon.
5. Flatten the top portion or leave it as it is.
6. Let it dry for a few hours until it gets all solid and the alcohol smell goes away.
7. You can flatten it even more using a coin wrapped in fabric.
Tadaa!! Our favorite eyeshadow as good as new 🙂
This method can also be used to fix a broken blush, bronzer or a compact powder.
Hope you find this useful.

Its Tutorial time!! I bring to you another easy peasy tutorial. Remember the Floral nails I did HERE. This the tutorial for same.
Things you need
- Nail polish of your choice for petals (*I prefer white or pink*)
- Yellow/ brown nail polish for the center portion
Apply your base color and let’s get started!
Place a dot on your nail using the back of toothpick.
Make 4 more dots adjacent to it to make the petals.
Using the ‘pointy’ end of toothpick, drag the nail polish from the middle of the petal towards the center of flower.
It will look something like this.
Do this for all 5 petals.
The center portion looks messy but it’ll cover up in the next step.
Using yellow/ brown nailpolish place a dot in the center of flower.
Tadaaa…. Floral nail art done!
Remember NOT to use a super fast drying nail polish for making the petals.
Happy painting girls 🙂
