Wednesday Trends

Dawn here for your Wednesday Trends.  I saw so many wonderful quilled projects and flowers in the latest pictures from CHA.  I wanted to share a tutorial my friend MariLynn shared with me.  I used the set Treemendous.  This is my favorite TSG set.

You will need paper (great way to use scraps)
2 circle punches
Quilling tool ( I got mine at Michael's for $3.00
Hot Glue Gun





Punch a hole in your paper.  I used a 1/4 in punch
here.  Save this tiny circle for the base.









Now take your larger punch and punch out another
circle around the 1/4 in circle.








Now take your scissors and cut this circle into a spiral until
you get to the middle of the circle.








Take the quilling tool and stick the little tiny end of the
beginning of your circle.  Twist the paper around into a tight
circle.






Now you can hot glue the quilled paper to your little 1/4 circle you punched and saved previously.


Well that's it for me.. I hope you will try this fun way to embellish your
papercrafting projects.. I want to thank MariLynn for her instructions.

  1. This card is just beautiful. I have been quilling for years and am so pleased to see the new trend of combining quilled embellishments with other crafts such as card making and scrabpooking. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Would you believe I have a quilling kit sitting in the closet... brand new...? Just haven't had the opportunity to use it yet. Thanks for the tutorial - pictures help.
