This design can be used to decorate a greeting card for a young lady who is expecting a child or for parents to remember them the blessing they have received with each of their children.

Step 1:

Needed tools:

  • 4 strips of paper (20 cm/8")
  • 2 strips of paper (10 cm/4")
  • 8 strips of paper (5 cm/2")
  • glue

  • needle tool
  • circle sizer ruler
  • tweezers (optional)

Step 2:

Insert a strip of paper (20 cm/8") into the slotted tool.

This is a tight circle.

Remove the tight circle from the tool.

Step 4:

Step 5:

Glue the end of the strip.

Hold the loose circle between your fingers to help it glue.

This is a quilled teardrop shape.

These are the two tight cirles.
