start sticking the quilling stripes by applying glue to the one edge of the stripe so the stripe stands vertically on the paper. Do the border of the fish first.

Step 4: Filling In

Start to fill in the inside areas of the fish by shaping the stripes to create a pattern.

Step 5: Add Colour

use different coloured stripes for the patterns so that the fish looks colourfull

Step 6: The Tail

At the end of the tail roll the end of the stripes. it gives a nice decorative look.

Step 7: The Fin

At the end cut small circle from a white paper and draw a smaller black circle on it with a black paint and stick it in place of the eye.

    Very good Job!!


    Cool. That is really impressive how you got all the paper trips to stand up so straight. What kind of glue did you use?

    Thanks. If the paper is thick enough it stays straight. I have used the ones generally used while making greeting cards, they are thick enough. Have used a white all purpose glue.
