Quilling Sneak Peek

It’s Friday!!!

Hope your all well today and have had a nice crafty week, we have been very busy at home with a few home chores so haven’t done as much crafting as I would have liked. But I have got a sneak peek of the start of a very special card, If she reads this she will know its for her so keep it quiet lol 😉

Supplies

Quilling Tool
Quilling Paper Strips
PVA Glue
Scissors
Cocktail Sticks – Applying the glue
Sponge or Rubber Mat
Pins
Card Blank
Embellishments

I try and pin out my letters or numbers first to fill with quilling patterns when they are dry and secured.

I first start rolling my paper in the tool then cut the end and glue in place or leave loose apply a little glue to the side that will touch the inside of the number and place it gently inside. Once you start building up the pieces the shape will form quickly and after it’s all filled up you should have a solid piece when it’s dry and you can remove the pins. I think you can get special boards for quilling but I have so many tools and not enough space to keep every hobby lol, so my hands and eyes have served me well so far. I still get the finish I want it just might not be as accurate or precise as the next crafter.

I am sorry I can’t show the whole card today but I would love to share this with you on Sunday morning after the party the night before 🙂

Thanks for reading and update will be with you Sunday x
Hope you enjoy your Friday and you’re weekend!
