After experiencing many failures, I make these earrings and a bookmark. Hope you like these.
This is such a fun project. If you have these tools and supplies, maybe you can have a try. So much fun will be found.
Step 1:It is really an easy activity. All you need is:
One sheet of shrink plastic
2Pcs head pins
Tiny glass beads
Hot air gun
I use these tools and supplies to finish doing these earrings and bookmark. Now, please read the following steps and follow me to start the DIY travel.
Step 2:Drawing and coloring
Use a pencil to draw some petals and small leaves, then cut them out of the plastic.
Next, Color them with pink and green powder( Color them with hands or a napkin). I think the powder is much better than using pencils directly. Of course, you can use the pencil to deepen the color.
These Sakura petals look very beautiful, all right? I think you can do better than me.
Step 3:Punching, fixing and shrinking
With a small paper hole-punch, center punches each Sakura and punch small holes at the end of each small petals and leaves. (In this step, I use a needle to punch small holes.)
A: Shrink the Sakura shape. Firstly, using a head pin with tiny beads fixes the plastic and shrink them. Within a minute, the plastic will uncurl and lie flat on the paper. While the flower is still warm, squish with a clay tool to create a bowl effect. Fix the head pin with tiny beads and the shrunk Sakura.
B: Shrink the petals and leaves. Fix them first and then shrink them until they are flat and become a small one.
Step 4:Decorating the earrings
Thread one bead through a head pin and create a bend in the wire to fix it. The another is same as this step.
Now, it’s time to decorate a chain and to show beautiful earrings. Firstly, take a piece of chain about 5cm. Connect the chain and the worked bead. Then fix other petals and leaves on the chain. Lastly, attach the chain to the needle and stick it with a hot glue gun.
Once the glue has dried, your earrings are done and ready to wear!
I love how these earrings turned out!
So what do you think? Do you like them? Would you give these a try? If you do, I want to see them! If you like these, please support and vote for me.
In addition, I also make a small bookmark with an extra plastic of Sakura shape. Some images are attached. I think you have got it. Have a try!
