Happy 4th of July!! As promised, today we're publishing a second tassel tutorial as our gift to you for the 4th of July.  These earrings are remarkably easy to make and extremely beautiful.  Its amazing what can be done with al little imagination and the right materials :) 
Yesterday, in our first tassel tutorial we hinted at the ridiculous amount of pictures we took this week, and after seeing today's post you'll see why.  We had tons of fun making this for you and you'll notice that we wrote the step by step instructions in both English and Spanish.  We do the same thing on all our video tutorials and that's because we're based out of Puerto Rico and Spanish is our first language :)  For those of you lucky enough to come to the Caribbean , make sure to give us a visit in Bayamon. 
Finally, make sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel and to our Newsletter, so you won't miss any of our free tutorials in the future.
