You will need (for one earring):
— quilling paper strips: 3.5 yellow, 5 red
— hooked earring base
— quilling glue
— fine-tip scissors
— *a toothpick or a match
— *slotted quilling tool
Make a tight coil of 1 yellow strip and glue on it four equal marquises (1 red strip for each).
Turn the item over.
Make four short yellow curls and glue them between the marquises. The curls should be a bit shorter, than the marquises.
Apply glue to the points of the marquises. Fold the end of the yellow strip, glue it to the top marquise and then wrap the strip around the marquises.
Wrap the strip around the marquises one or two more times (until the strip ends), spreading some glue on the corners before each wrap.
Fix the end on the strip with glue.
Make a coil with a hole in the middle of 1/2 of a yellow strip. Thread a small piece of yellow strip through the ring-coil. Curl the ends of the strip.
Attach the ring to the earring, gluing the curls to the sides of the square.
The earring is complete. Attach a hooked earring base to it and make the second earring the same way.
