Step 6: Gluing Coils

...release it on your work surface and let it expand to a "loose coil", then glue it. From there you can pinch it into shape or leave it a circle.
<p>Now thinking of making a larger butterfly using this method</p>
thx a lot 4 dis!!!i made a very nyc 1! :D :D :D :D
It is possible to do this while subsituting the quilling strips with construction paper, no?
Well, it depends... construction paper is actually thinner than the strips I use in this instructable. Thick can be easier to work with. But if you felt like putting up with cutting nice straight strips from construction paper, then first of all you have a very good cutting hand and second of all it would be a nice way to get a different texture. Good Idea.
Your notes are _incredibly_ detailed. I like it, good job.
I've finally made another instructable. Search for "powhatan."
Thanks. Sorry for waiting so long to reply. I know that the contest awards are given for detail. I'm making another instructable really soon. Hopefully just as detailed!
I've always wanted to get into quilling. Thanks for posting this!
It's a lot of fun. I hope this Instructable makes it easier!
Very nice!!
hang all of these on a wind chime or childs mobile
That`s another good idea. It`s neat how people always see different things in different projects.
I like them. Have you thought about filling in the spirals with something?<br/><br/>I seen these plastic pellets that have a low melting point, as part of a craft stain glass window kit. Do you know what I'm talking about?<br/><br/>Or maybe some of the stuff used in this instructable<br/><a href="https://www.instructables.com/ex/i/765E5ADA077A1029853F001143E7E506/">https://www.instructables.com/ex/i/765E5ADA077A1029853F001143E7E506/</a><br/><br/>You could make an awesome mobile with different coloured sections of your paper butterflies.<br/>
Yeah, I know what you mean. That`s a good idea. Actually, the original butterfly idea was much larger, and they were window hangers, but without the plastic.
