Introduction: How It Is Made: Quilled Paper Bowl

I create a bowl from paper. It's not difficult :) Use 5mm wide strips of paper.

To make this paper bowle you need some basics of your quilling supplies:

  • Scissors
  • Quilling strips (many 5mm )
  • Quilling needles
  • liquid Glue (I use Express Wood Glue)
  • BluTac
  • a porcelain bowl

Step 1: Getting the Basic Shape

Make lots of drop and eye shaped pieces in preparation, these will be the ones you'll use for the bowl.

I use a porcelain bowl to get the basic shape. I use BluTac to fix the first flower in the middle.

Step 2: Filling Up the Bowl

I arrange the pattern in the order. I use Express Wood Glue fix the pieces I made in the first step together.

Be careful, don't glue them to the bowl.

Step 3: Almost Done

I use harmonising colors.

Step 4: Last Steps

Remove it carefully from the bowl.

Let the glue dry.

After that you can coat it with diluted glue or lacquer to fix the shape.

You can prepare a sole from some round shaped pieces.

And it's ready!

You can store light objects, jewellery or candies in it.

How do you keep from gluing the pieces to the bowl? And how do you 'remove it carefully' without it tearing? I think this is gorgeous!

Great idea, and so pretty. How do you create the eye shaped pieces?

Where did you get the Quilled Paper? Did you glue the pieces together?

I buy colored papers and have them cut in a printing house.

I think he's just saying to hold it in place with BluTak... the whole thing is glued together... whatever your favorite paper glue is would work.

Wow, lovely! What kind of glue do you use to connect the pieces together?

One suggestion: Re-name your Instructable with something a bit more descriptive, like Quilled Paper Bowl. That way people will be able to find it more easily.

Isn't BluTack that reusable stuff? That stuff always gives out on me. What if you tried a liquid glue or maybe a rubber cement?
