Quilling is a very nice technique that I learned when I was little and although I really liked it, I stopped doing it after a short time (like most things I did!). Luckily I tend to keep everything, and when I recently started to think about trying it again, I remembered that I still had the quilling tool that I got back then!

So here is the first quilling creation I've made in years!
The shapes you can make with this technique are endless so you can really have fun creating your own. It's also perfect to do with kids because it's so simple to do! 
Since I love snow and snowflakes, I decided to make snowflake decorations for my Christmas tree and I am going to show you how to make a couple in this Instructable. They are actually 2 snowflakes in one!
I hope you enjoy it!*

Step 1: What you need

Picture of What you need
  • a sheet of white A4 paper (the one you use for printing)
  • slotted quilling tool
  • white glue and painting brush
  • scissors or cutter
  • pencil
  • ruler

Step 2: Make the strips

The first you have to do is dividing your piece of paper in stripes.
The stripes must be 0,5 cm (0.19 inches) large and as long as the longest side of the sheet of paper.
It's very important that you make all the strips the same width so use a ruler and a pencil to do this.

When you are done making all your strips you have to cut them.
I started cutting them using scissors but after the first strip I actually used a cutter because I realized that it would have been much faster!

Try to be as accurate as possible in this step.

Linda... your craft ideas are just super awesome. Congratulations for your winning, so happy :)
