Picture of Quilled Paper Cake Dome - New Techniques
20140314_000619 (480x640).jpg

Quilling has got into my blood again and so I thought to try another project for the Papercraft Contest.
Coming up with an idea for this contest was tough as the contestants are pretty amazing! As I wanted to try out quilling, I searched instructables and found that a couple of quilling techniques were missing! how come?
Well I was happy! I finally have something NEW to teach you ;-D

I thought how best to display these techniques in an object that would display them perfectly also be useful. Hmmm... I thought and searched instructables. WHAT! No cake domes??? could this be? Well I was thrilled. haha.

These techniques I'm going to teach are pretty easy. If you already know it? Wonderful :-), still, I would like your vote
If you are learning this for the first time, then I would love your vote as I taught it to you first! lol

Step 1: Basic Materials

Picture of Basic Materials

Basic Materials
Shredded paper - feel free to use all your recycled paper -( heavy weight paper is best for this)
White glue
Quilling paper strips or Colored paper of your choice for flowers and leaves and a hand shredder.
A pin / Needle or quilling tool
Basic regular hair comb

If you do not know the basic shapes of quilling and are a beginner, then I would advise you to first check this and this . Once you master those if you like something different then this instructable. :-)

Now to begin

Not nearly as beautiful as yours. I'm new to quilling. But functional none the less! I'm not crazy about the bronze, but it's what I had. I like the silk leaves. I lined mine with lace scraps. Should be big proof, if not exactly pretty :)
