Apologies for not updating my blog frequently. The past few months have been very hectic but there is no excuse of the lack of updates. So here I am bribing you with a DIY which will hopefully give you ideas on how you can make statement neck pieces at home.
All you need is
1. Glue gun/fevistick
2. Comic strips copies
3. Coloured satin Ribbon(I chose white)
4. Pearl beads stickers
1. Punching machine(if you want to pass a thread or wire through your design
2. Beads for more decoration
Cut pictures of the comic strip according to the size you want. The reason I have used comic strips is because this way you won't have to use poster colors or color pencils to add color to your neck piece. This automatically saves your time and you don't even dirty your hands*winks*.
Fold the cut out picture 1/4th inch just the way it is shows in the image below. Continue folding till the picture has multiple fold. I am sure everybody has used this technique as a kid to create a fan:P
Use a glue gun or a fevistick to stick the folds so that they stay intact. Remember to apply glue only on the bottom so that the paper is wide from the top(like a fan) and tapers towards the end.
Stick the paper folding on the ribbon. I have stuck the paper folding in such a manner that there is alternate colored portion and white portion paper folding all over which makes it a reversible neck piece.
Now use the pearl bead sticker on the ends of the ribbon to add a touch of bling in the typical bohemian neck piece.
And Voila, the funky neck piece made out of comic strips is ready.
