Quilled Christmas Card

Introduction: Quilled Christmas Card

About: I live in the amazing country of Romania, in Western Europe. I started doing quilling in 2011. Quilling is the art of curling strips of paper. I invite you to see my artworks. I hope you will like them :) En...

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.

Step 1:

You will need

  • 11 green (2 shades of green) strips of paper (30 cm long and 1.5 cm wide),
  • glue
  • scissor
  • slotted quilling tool (optional)

Step 2:

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.

Step 3:

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.

Step 4:

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.
