NEW Paper Quilling Techniques!!

Try out the NEW line of Paper Quilling at Ben Franklin Stores! See how easy it is to create these cute cupcakes and other designs using Quilling Papers and a Quilling Tool

Quilling Tool
Quilling Papers
Quick Dry Tacky Glue

Step one:
Choose the design you want to create. Begin rolling the strip of paper around the quilling tool, holding the paper snug as you go.

Step Two:

Let the paper spiral un-ravel to the width you want. Glue the end of the strip to help keep its form. If you would like to make a tear drop shape, pinch one side of the circle. Make different shapes by pinching in different areas.

Step Three:

Glue shapes together to make your design! Use on Cards, Scrapbooks, Mixed Media and so much more!!!


 Thanks for looking and CRAFT ON!!!!!!
