I fell in love with paper quilling about 5 years ago....and since then i've been gifting people with quilled cards , frames and so on.
Its inexpensive and very beautiful ...all it takes is your time :-)
You could use different colors to suit your clothes and moods....the possibilities are endless!

Step 1: Things you need

A hand paper shredder or quilling paper
colored paper of your choice ( if you are buying quilling paper then just buy the colors you want)
ruler with circles
Styrofoam board
barbeque stick/ tooth pick
<p>Thank you!</p>
<p>what varnish do u use?</p>
<p>Regular varnish is fine...else you could mix 50 /50 % of glue and water mix . Just coat it and let dry. You could also use decopage </p>

hey...just a thought....would people be interested in a quilling wheel? meaning something that would automatically roll up your paper.. :-) i'm in the process of inventing one..
That's a cool idea! have you come up with anything?
This is nice. The photos are hard to see and for anyone who doesn't know what quilling is, there could be a little more detail. Your pieces are very pretty though!
Thanks.., yes..I agree... The closeup of the basic shapes are blurry ... I will try to correct in... When I get the time... Please let me know how I can add more details... I would like to add it so people would understand. Thought this was quite detailed... Guess I was wrong :-)
really lovely! <br>I've never tried quilling before but I'm defenitely going to!
that's great! please post pictures here when you do ..i would love to see them.
Shanzi Beautiful addition to ur instructables... <br /> <br />but r these water proof?
if you varnish it about 3 thick coats...yes...it's water proof as in an decoupage crafts. i've forgotton and had a wash with it a couple of times and it's still the same. :-) just make sure you varnish well.
i am confused on how to get the paper measurements. this craft is all about making jewlery aout of long pieces of paper right?
yes....long strips....different colors....i just rolled randomly till the width i preferred came...for this tutorial...i measured the randomly cut pieces .
to get perfect strips, you can use a paper shredder that shreds neat, 5mm wide strips, thats what i use
My paper shredder is in the picture...the box like thing with the yellow top ( i haven't perfectly closed it) What's fantastic about it is it cuts 2mm strips or 1/8&quot; strips...which is exactly the normal quilling paper width. If i need wider strips i generally mark and cut with a exacto knife :-).<br>btw..please rate it if you like it. thanks
handy, isn't it?<br>i would but my computer won't show me the rating stars...i'll have o get onto a admin
ooh, beautiful, i love quilling
Whoa, awesome! I've never seen this technique applied this way. I love it!
Thanks! I just hope Mrballeng and Penolopy Bulnick love it too! :-D

It is! I've already have gifted 2 of the above and have been requested to make more with different shades :-)
Thanks :-)
