Fashion is not only garments. Its much more than that! such as DIY Paper quilling accessories
I love shopping, do you, actually that was a rhetoric question, who doesn’t? Apart from buying crafting supplies online, I keep on scouring malls and online stores for new fashion collection. For a long time fashion for me meant only garments; whereas fashion is so much more than that. If a nice dress is not accessorized well, then it does not cut any ice. A complete package is what it should be, from head to toe each article should complement each other.
Fashion defines you, fashion makes you stand out and the type of fashion you choose is your style statement. We are living in an era where being fashionable is considered to be cool. When you have just a few seconds to make an impact, Fashion comes to your aid, and if one has an inherent style then there is no stopping you.
So, I just bought a lovely summery white top and was thinking of a way to accessorize it. I didn’t really wanted to go for any chunky metallic jewelry as a neck accessory and then my friend suggested wearing some nice silver filigree with it. And that’s what made the mind churn and I stopped at paper filigree popularly known as paper quilling.
Take one quilling strip of each color and cut it into half. Stick them in gradation of your choice at the ends. I started with white and ended with orange.
Make around 12 – 14 tightly rolled coils with the strips. Quilling tools come in real handy when we have to give a shape to the strips.
Then I took some paper thread that I recently got from the market. It is available at most of the leading craft stores.
Leave it to dry.
Here, a glimpse of my summery blouse with the quilled neckpiece and I am still getting compliments for it. Do try!
Adios till the next one.
