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!*

*and if you do, please vote :D thank you!

Step 1: 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
<p>Thank you for this project Instructable! So well done! </p><p>I would add one thing to make it easier -- quilling strips are readily available in all colors and several widths. Most common size is 1/8 inch, but 3/8, 1/4, and even 1/2 inch are also available. I would recommend the wider strips for ease of use for a beginner, and for sturdier snowflakes. The 1/8 inch strips make a beautiful dainty snowflake!</p>
