Intro: Make a Quilling Kit for Kids Less Than 8 Years Old
A friend of mine wanted something awesome for his kid who is 6 years old. A quilling desktop card came to the mind. But handing over a sharp tool like a quilling pin to a kid less than 8 years old is totally a no no, considering the safety. So I decided to make the parts before hand and give it as a kit to the kid.
Step 1: Materials
Modeling board for the card
Computer and printer to print out the cover
Step 2: The Card
Cut out a modelling board size will be 4inchx6inch.
You can use your own size as required
Cut a triangular piece as the stand from another board. I used 2 inchx5 inch piece. Cut it diagonally and you get the stand.
Using scotch tape attach the stand to the back of the main board and you are done with the board.
Step 3: Quilling Pieces
We need to make
1 s shaped strip for the stem
3 bullets (tight rolls) for the center of the petals and the fruits
2 flat shapes for the leafs
Step 4: All Comes Together
Assemble the pieces one last time ( no gluing) to check if we are missing anything.
Collect the pieces into a packaging thing. Please use your imagination for packaging the things.
Step 5: Print the Label
Preferably use a laser printer to print the label. You can also use a ink jet printer. Just make sure the ink does not smudge.
Step 6: All Comes Together
Assemble everything together and put them into some kind of packaging and you re done to give it to a kid. I have not included any manual as the images on the label are self explanatory.
Step 7: Final Output
The kids have the just open the packaging and glue the quilled pieces to make their own personalized cards.
