Quilling is amazing...when I discovered it ...I went crazy...so many design possibilities ...just with paper!
If you haven't got into quilling...I recommend you try it...you will love it!
My first quilled project in Instructables was this it will show you all the basic shapes.
Try that and try out these cards too......I'm sure whoever you give it to will appreciate it as it can also be turned in to wall art!
Step 1: Basic Shapes For This Tutorial
Here I have shown the basic shapes needed for this tutorial :-)
Step 2: Petal Hearts!
This is my favorite...but a bit time consuming in cutting the hearts :-)
Fold Cardboard in half and draw and cut template of heart. Keep the heart... you would need it for the next project.
Pin the outline template to your card or tape it down.
If you have 3-4 sizes of heart punches...you can use it to cut out various hearts and then fold them in two...making a petal shape.
If you don't have punches...so fuss! simply fold paper in half, draw your heart...then fold lengthwise so that you can cut about 4-5 hearts in one go.
When I find an easy way...I do it ;-) haha.
I had the smallest heart puncher...so I used that and then using that as a guide I made templates of larger hearts to draw on the paper.
First fill in the largest petals. Place the largest heart petals in the shape of a flower...making sure the open flap goes in the same direction.
Now fill in with the second largest heart petal. Gradually move to the smallest heart petal.
While filling up make sure you take in the shape of the heart outline with the the petals being placed strategically :-)
Now fill up the gaps with petals formed in hearts and single petals . That's it!
Don't you just love this??
Which one are you going to try??
