''The Art of Quilling'' - an art as easy, effective and efficient as it can get! All you need is some strips of paper, some glue, a little bit of patience and marvel at your hands create miracles like they never did before!

We got introduced to this 2 years ago and today we can proudly say that all that we have made and learnt in these past 2 years was all entirely by ourselves without the help of any external source, not even the internet, and thus we can say it with confidence that you don't require any experience in advance.

A Mandala is a spiritual symbol that represents the universe, encompassing the whole.

Keeping these two ideas in mind, we have let our emotions flow out into these strips of paper to create something simple yet beautiful. We also wanted to take it up as a challenge and therefore kept our diameter a meter long! We also used a total of 3500 strips!

If you like it, please share and follow us for more innovative craft projects. We would love to hear your feedback, so do drop a word in the comment section below and don't forget to vote for us in the ''Papercraft Contest!''

Step 1: Gathering Your Materials

You can choose the colours and thickness of your strips depending on the design that you wish to make. We used ''5mm strips'' and picked a variety of colours to make several colour combinations as we felt that would give it a more vibrant look.


  • Quilling Paper
  • Paper Glue
  • Cardboard
  • Coloured Paper (We used Handmade Paper)

Once you have your materials you are ready to get started!

Vibrant and stunning. It looks like a wheel of Energy with power pack. Congratulations for putting the energy, time and concentration for creating this.
Thank you so much! All our effort was worth it! :)
<p>Wow!! Absolutely beautiful, and the directions are so easy to follow. Thank you for sharing.</p>
<p>Thank you so much! :)</p>
<p>That's really pretty. Nice project.</p><p>Well planned Instructable as well. Clear and concise with the right pictures showing the right concept at the right time. Nice work.</p><p>Except for one thing. The YouTube video showing basic quilling shapes is blocked by Sony Music Entertainment (SME). I assume they didn't like the music you used and since they own the copyright they are flexing their giant iron fist. Overlay some different music and load it again, you should be good. I'd like to see it.</p>
Thank you so much for your positive feedback.<br>Yes, about the video, i realised after i had put it up that the song is copyrighted. I will change the music and i hope it will work again then!
<p>One of the best Instructables I have seen! Clear instructables, with beautiful pictures. Love the project, you have definetely deserved my vote!</p>
Thank you so much for your feedback and vote! :)
