Tools & Materials

o   Corrugated quilling papers

o   strong glue

o   scissor

o   earring hooks

o   jump rings (4 pcs)

o   small pink beads (6 pcs)

o   eye pins (4 pcs)

o   plier


Let’s start by cutting the stripe into halves. You will use a half of the stripe for one base of the cupcake.

One stripe is 18.5 x 0.5 inches.

You can start roll the stripe tightly. You can determine the diameter of the base as you want.

If you’re about to reach the end, glue to secure the roll.

With your thumb, gently push it right at the centre to create the base. Then, you can glue the inside of the base to secure it. Let it dry.

While you’re waiting for the base, let’s create the cake. Cut in half the pink stripe with your scissor. Because the cake should be wider than the base, add more stripe (~5.5 inches) to the end of the half stripe you’ve cut before with glue.

Roll and push the cake gently with your finger.

Glue the inside of the cake and repeat the same step to make another cupcake.

Glue the cake and base together and you can add a little heart on the top of the cupcake.

To make it as earrings, glue and insert the eyepin into the cupcake.

Assemble the eyepin and beads with the plier as shown.

Bring it to live by attaching the beads with the hook and the cupcake!

Enjoy the sweetness!
