Quilling Instructions

Instructions

quilling figure 1

1. Hold the paper strip in one hand. In your other hand, hold the tool at an angle to your paper and slide the tool onto the paper strip.

2. With the tool at the top of the paper strip, start turning the tool toward you, curling the strip onto the tool (keep the fingers of your other hand over the curling paper strip to keep it straight and at an even tension). When you finish curling the strip, let it go and then carefully remove the quilled item from the tool.

See quilling shapes below.
See introduction to quilling video below.
