  4. 4. Christmas Card WreathMaterial 3 mm quilling paper –purple red and light green in color, purpleshiny card 8 cm x 13 cm, A4 size paper – white and medium green in color,quilling tool, a pair of small scissors, card mount, craft adhesive.Making the Card Take the card mount and draw a rectangle shape with apencil behind the opening flap. The rectangle should be large enough toaccommodate the florets and candles. You may refer to the card above. Cutalong the lines with the scissors to create a rectangular aperture.

  5. 5. Now, you shall make the florets. You may need twelve florets in all. Take themedium green paper, and cut strips 1.4 cm wide by 24 cm long. Spread outthe green paper on your work board and mark out 12 x 1.4 cm strips and rulelines along the length.Fold the strip in half length-wise, and clip off the top of the strip at an anglestarting at the folded side. Cut along the folded edge at a distance of 2 mm,and continue to cut until about three quarters of the way i.e. stop just 1/4 th ofthe way from the other edge. When you reach the bottom of the length, cut offthe triangle. Check out here for more free patterns: http://www.freequillingpatterns.net/
  6. 6. Fold the top corner with the open edge into the quilling tool and roll the strip.As the rolling continues, the cut portion will start to fold out side ways andyour floret will begin to take shape. Glue the end of the floret to prevent it fromuncoiling.Next, to make the flames for the candles, roll the red paper over the quillingtool, remove it and drop it on the work board to uncoil. Glue the end, andpinch on of the ends and give a slight twist to form the flame. Make three suchflames for the three candles.

  7. 7. Next, you shall make three candles. Take the white paper and cut it to thesize 8 cm x 12 cm. Spread the paper out and roll it around a 5 mm knittingneedle and glue the end. Pull out the knitting needle, and cut the top edge ofthe rolled paper at an angle.You shall now make three Christmas roses. Take the purple strip of paperand make five tight coils using the quilling tool. Glue the ends before removingfrom quilling tool. Push out the centers of the coils softly, to form bell shapes.Apply some glue on the inner side to retain the shape. Flatten the coils slightlyat the sides to form five petals. Place the petals in a circular pattern, as shown, and glue them together at thesides. Take the light green paper and roll a tight coil on the quilling tool. Gluethe end. Place the tight coil into the center of the petals and glue it securely.Gather all the items you made and place them in position. Place one floretapiece on the top and bottom of the oval shape. Next, place the other floretsalong the edge of the oval. Take the three candles and snip off the bases atdifferent lengths to vary the overall length of the candles. Place them at thebase of the oval and glue them. Glue the three flames accordingly. Glue thethree Christmas roses at the bottom of the base just above the florets asshown.

  8. 8. Daisy CardMaterial The material required for making the Daisy Card is 10 mm quillingpaper - one strip of light pink, 3 mm one strip of green, 1.5 mm one strip ofyellow, and two strips of green. In addition, you will require a quilling tool,scissors, white card (10 x 15 cm), craft-adhesive.Making the Card For making the head of the daisy, take the 10 mm light thpink paper and use about one-third of its length to fringe it finely. Take 1/4length of the yellow paper, and glue its end to one end of the light pink paper.Take the yellow end and start rolling it tightly on the quilling tool. Glue the endto prevent it from unrolling. After removing the roll from the tool, bend thedaisy petals outwards. Your daisy head is ready.Making the bud is a simple process. Take the light pink paper and fringe oneeighth of its length very fine. Roll it tightly over the quilling tool and glue theend to prevent it from unrolling. Now, take the green paper and use 1/4 th of itslength for making a tight coil over the quilling tool. Glue its end so it doesuncoil. Now push out the center gently to form a cup and add some glue tothe inside so that it does come to its original position again. Fit the light pinkpart into the green cup and glue them. Your bud is ready. Check out here for more free patterns: http://www.freequillingpatterns.net/
  9. 9. Take the green paper and fold 20 cm of it in half. Apply glue on the inside andstick them together to form a thick flat strip. You will need two such strips ofunequal heights - the longer one for the flower and the shorter one for thebud.Next, you will need two leaves. Take the green paper and cut two one-quarterlengths. Roll them using the quilling tool to make two loose coils. Glue theend. When dry, pinch one of the ends to form the leaf.Gather all the pieces and fix them accordingly on the card. If you want to addsome designs on your own, you can do so. Stickers are available on themarket, which you can use on your cards, like in the above illustration. Thefour golden corner designs are stickers that have been affixed on the card. Check out here for more free patterns: http://www.freequillingpatterns.net/
  10. 10. Bunch of FlowersMaterial You may need 3 mm quilling paper in red, pink, and green colors.For a better effect, select three different shades of green. In addition, you willalso require 5 mm white quilling paper, a small quilling tool, craft-adhesive,and an SF-3P cream/brown oval card mount.Making the Card Make four leaves from the green paper using the ‘alternateside-looping method’. The leaves vary in design. Provide different number ofside loops to each leaf. You can also make them of different sizes to give theflowers a natural appearance. Check out here for more free patterns: http://www.freequillingpatterns.net/
  11. 11. Hold two strips of the green paper together and form loops, like thoseillustrated above. To alter the height, adjust the size of the loop.Fold the two papers to create a loop and adjust the inner side to create loopsof different sizes.Fold the papers to create a loop on the other side now, making adjustments toform smaller loops. Check out here for more free patterns: http://www.freequillingpatterns.net/
  12. 12. You may make as many leaves as you want this way, creating loops on eitherside. The number of loops on either side should give a balanced look to theleaves. Next, fold the paper at the base, as shown in the above illustration.If you have used three different shades of green for winding, snip the end ofthe middle paper. The ends of the other two papers should be wound aroundthe loops and glued at the base to form a leaf. Snip off the excess strips.To create loops for different styles of leaves, take a lighter green shade stripand fold to create multiple loops, as shown above. Stick the end with glue andclip off the extra strip. Check out here for more free patterns: http://www.freequillingpatterns.net/
  13. 13. Next, you may try making petals for the flowers. Take the red paper andcreate 24 half petals from 12 lengths, and from the pink paper make 12 halfpetals of smaller size. Coil these papers loosely, pinch the ends, and flattenone of the sides (as shown above). Pic 1 Pic 2 Pic 3 Pic 4Next, we shall make flower centers to provide more depth and detail to eachflower. Use the 5 mm white paper and snip off 1/3 rd of its length. This will besufficient to make three flower centers. Using the quilling tool, wind two orthree turns of the paper, making a right angle fold, as shown in the aboveillustrations. Keep rolling the paper over the tool until it is straight again (Pic2). Fold the paper over at a right angle again (Pic 3). Roll it until it is straight,as in Pic 2. Continue to roll, keeping the bottom tight. Remove rolled paperfrom the tool and stick the end with glue.Now, take the petals and pair them up, as shown. Apply glue along one flatside of each pair and attach the pairs with their respective counterparts. Holduntil the glue dries.

  14. 14. Following the pattern given in the above illustrations, join the petals to formthe shape of flowers. Collect all other items you made and stick them on thecard as shown. Lay the leaves first, and then place the flowers on top. Let acouple of petals of the pink flower overlap the top red flower. Similarly, let acouple of petals of the top red flower overlap the lower red flower. Take theflower centers and stick them in the center of each of the three flowers. Yourcard is ready.
