This DIY paper jewelry tutorial by Mark Montano takes inspiration from luxe accessories and recreates them for a fraction of the cost. Mark takes inspiration from beautiful pieces by Cristian Lacroix and makes his own chunky 80s-inspired creations.

The DIY project requires a bangle for the base, some metallic paint, scrap magazine pages and as many flat-backed jewels as you can find. Rolling up the magazine pieces and topping them with gems really gives the accessories volume and creates a look that is quite believable. Mark uses this technique to create earrings and other fun pieces as well.

This DIY makes great costume jewelry pieces, as well as statement pieces you can wear everyday without the worry of losing them.
