Default Quilling

Hey...I saw some beautiful quilled snowflakes and decided to try my hand at quilling. It really isn't too difficult...and a great way to use up my cardstock.

My question is this: Does anyone out there have some websites where I can get free quilling patterns/designs? I have been searching, but usually come up with the same patterns. I would like to find some designs that I can "work up to"....

Thanks!!! AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Just make lots of shapes and play around with them. Make eyes, paisleys, squares, circles....I believe you can buy books of patterns. Try ebay.

Amy hi, it has been quite some years that I did "quilling" but it really is such a beautiful craft I agree. I have written an article with some factual background, and a link to a floral mix picture that I quilled also; it might be of interest to you.

Default Qilling

Thanks for all the input on this thread. I thought I was the only one who quilled! I have taught quilling in the past and there was a lot of interest in it. It is the most serene, calming craft...and it really doesn't take long at all! I'm still a card maker and rubber stamper but quilling and watercoloring are my relaxation!

Hi, I would just love to have a larger copy of the snowflake patterns. (The pictures were too small for me!) Thanks and love, Granny8stamper

Thank you for this site.

I took a quilling class at a LSS and have made a few cards using quilled flowers, frogs, and butterflies. You can buy books at Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby, Michael's and JoAnn's carries the paper strips and quilling tools. Of course after taking the class I had to have the board, fancy tool, glue, and book from my LSS. At the time I didn't think about using my cardstock for the strips. Now I do and they match SU colors.

Default ?? Card stock ??

Can I Bump, I'd love to know . . . .

Oh now, I would have thought that card stock would be too thick and too hard to hjold its curl. All the strips you byu are thin paper. . . So does card stock work? I presume you just use your cutter and trim off thin strips . . . ? I would love to know as I love quilling. Thanks for all the links to great new patterns!

I would like to know this too. I thought with quilling you had to use thin paper. I buy all SU! paper so didn't think any quilled pieces would match. CAN you use card stock to quill????
Thanks!

I personally do not like using SU cardstock as it is to thick. the packs of cardstock you can buy at michaels or Walmart are thinner and do work. I personally like the thinner paper and for glue I use the Quickie Glue Pen.
After I have my snowflake done I use a larger glue pen or glue & a brush and cover it with glue and pour glitter over it. Any thin paper will work or you can buy the quilling strips.
The glue really stiffens the paper and I made some of these some years ago and they still go on my tree every year and still strong.

I have made my own strips already. I just use my paper trimmer. You have to make sure you cut at the exact mark everytime though.

ebay also has some quilling kits on there. Just type in quilling.
When I started I did not buy the board or anything like that. Just the quilling tool and paper strips from Michaels.

I've ordered from:

quillingsuperstore.com

They have a great selection of paper and patterns, even beginner patterns.

I decided I wanted to make snowflakes and I remembered that one of my fav hobby stores in Kalispell, Montana, had stuff for quilling, so I bought a snowflake kit.

The first thing I made in the kit was a cute snowman. It was soooo easy, but decided I needed a board for the circle sizes.

I recently went to ebay, looking for a board and didn't want to pay $16 for it, and I found a brand new one on ebay with the foam backing for pins and the buy it now price with free shipping was only $6.75! I was thrilled!

If you go to www.craftcreations.co.uk and click on "free projects", they have projects from almost 50 back issues of their magazine. (All of them are at least a year old, but for what we're doing, that doesn't matter.)

You have to click on each issue of the magazine and then read thru the list of projects for that issue to find the ones for quilling, but they've got quite a few. Lots of lovely floral patterns; most of them are done up as cards.

While you're there, explore a while! There aren't a lot of stamped cards, but there are lots of other fun cards done with polyclay, paper scraps and other bits & pieces. They have nice, clear instructions with lots of photos and diagrams.

I've always wondered--do quilled items do ok in the mail or do I need to use a special mailing envelope? I made a few flowers and wanted to get back to quilling, but was afraid to send anything in the mail and it get destroyed.

I've never tried mailing a quilled item, but knowing that the post office isn't always as careful as they might be (and everything runs thru machines) I'd send it in a padded envelope.

If I'm not getting my chores done, the least I can do is distract the rest of you so I don't look so bad in comparison, right?

What she means is that the words "Scrapactivity.com" in the 'lets-go-there-bar' on the computer doesn't actually take you to anything that resembles such a page. Is this site still running? Av

I usually font the card with a double layer of bubble wrap. I put the raised part to the back of the envelope and hope it doesnt get killed!! No one has said their card was mashed up, but, thinking about it, may be they wouldn't tell me?? !! Avril.

quilledcreations.com

I have a couple cards i did on here. The one with 4 flowers i got out of a book I bought. The other ones were just playing around trying to get the shapes and design right. CardMaker magazine has a new quilling pattern every month. (The butterfly one is my version of a sample they had a couple years ago) A couple years ago, I found a quill a day calendar at borders after christmas for half off.

My favorite quilling book is Klutz Twirled Paper. Such fun creatures in there!

Here are a few cards I've made based on critters in the book:

Hi Jennifer, quilling is amazingly sturdy. Post in a padded envelope with a piece of cardboard behind it to stabilize. If you wanted to protect it another step you could turn your card inwards for the journey (i.e. the quilling is on the inside).

Wow! The number of free downloads and the superior quality of them is astounding. It will take me days to get through all of the back issues and it won't be to look at just the quilling!!!

Thanks for all of this information. It was just a week or so ago that DH said he would be interested in learning how to quill. I have no idea what set that off. In his world of college sports and power tools it kinda surprised, but he is always willing to try new things.

The Klutz Twirled Paper book (link in my post above) is a great way to get started because it comes with everything you need: quilling tool, paper strips, plus even glue and wiggle eyes. (I prefer Sobo glue and haven't tried the glue in the kit though.)
I've seen the Twirled Paper book at Michael's and then you can use your coupon. I've also seen it Barnes & Nobles and other places where they carry the Klutz books - usually in the kids section. HTH! Have fun!
