Curling Ribbon Earrings

with Gwen Studios

This month the Gwen Studios design team is working with curling ribbon. Curling ribbons can be used in a variety of different ways. Quilling paper is very similar to curling ribbon so I thought it would work in a similar way. I chose to roll the ribbons into disks and make earrings.

I would like to thank Gwen Studios for providing me with the ribbon to work with. Designer Crafts Connection will share links to all the projects made for this month’s nautical theme design team projects.

ribbon and quilling paper

The photo above shows the difference in size between the curling ribbon on the left and the quilling paper on the right. The ribbon is just about twice the width but comes in a really long length that you can cut to your desired size.

rolling the ribbon

Using a battery-operated quilling tool, made the rolling of the ribbon quick and easy. The ribbon naturally curls in one direction, following that direction makes the rolling of the ribbon a bit easier to work with. Use tacky glue to add different colors to the rolling.

To secure the ribbon, I added a piece of cardstock onto the back of the curled ribbon in a coordinating color. To see the entire process, watch the video tutorial below:

I made two different pairs of earrings using the same curling technique. The blue pair are stud earrings while the pink version is made using ear wires.
