Introduction: Quilled Christmas Card
This Quilled Christmas Card is easy to do. I found this design on the internet and I liked it, then I taught I'd give it a try. This free tutorial will show you how to create a Christmas Tree which you can use to decorate a card for someone you love.
You can use two shades of green to give the design a nice effect, but one shade would work just fine. I cut the strips by hand but you can use a fringer quilling machine which will last shorter time. The Christmas Tree can be decorated in many ways so feel free to use your creativity and personalize this design.
You will need
- 11 green (2 shades of green) strips of paper (30 cm long and 1.5 cm wide),
- slotted quilling tool (optional)
Cut the strips of paper the way you see in the pictures below.
If you have a fringer machine then this is the moment to start using it in this design.
Using the machine will help you speed up your work, which is very good.
Roll the strips of paper as a tight circle using a slotted tool or by hand.
Glue the end of the strip and let it dry.
Start pressing down the short strips of paper.
It looks like a flower that opens the petals.
Arrange all the quilled flowers to form a Christmas Tree.
See the pictures above. I glued some pearls inside each little opened flower, to imitate the Christmas Tree lights. Feel free to decorate your design the way you like it.
