Roses for my Valentine 

                                                                              

                                                                                                                    

This is one of my favorite hearts. I love the white on red but it is just as pretty in red on white or pink on white. Lightly draw a heart shape on your card or backing. Then cover the lines with 6" marquises. My heart was about 3 1/2" wide; I used 34 marquises. (The number will vary depending on the siize of the heart.) Make 33" tight rolls and glue them as shown. The roses are simply folded roses made with 1/8" paper. I made a dozen and glued them to covered floral wire for stems. Top it off with a paper bow and you have a beautiful card for Valentines day, a birthday or anniversary.

                                                                  Bandaged Heart

 

                                                                                                 

 

This heart is made with a technique called bandaging. I used six strips of pink 1/8" quilling paper and then "wrapped" a strip of red around them. I drew a heart lightly on my back ground and glued the bandaged strips to the outline. The flowers are 3" triangles pushed into a heart shape. I made two pink flowers and one red. I then wrapped one of the pink flowers with red paper and added the stems.

Make a black oval "collar that fits around the cross. Fill in empjty spaces using "beehive" technique using the new color blend vellums . . . it almost looks like stained glass.

Crimped Easter Egg

I used 5 full strips of shades of lavender/purple/and pink to make this little egg. I crimped them all and then started rolling with one strip.I then added the other four strips one at a time to get the varigated look. I then added a little punch flower for an accent.

He is standing in the shade of a large crimped 3 looped wheatear flower ( I used 12" strips). The leaves on the stem are also 3 loops wheatears pulled into a point at the end.

 

new-web-tea-cup.jpg (849×474)

. I started out by making a tight roll with approximately ten full length strips for the base of the cup. I put the tight roll in the bottom of an actual tea cup and then started adding the quilling one row at a time. After each row dried, I would loosen it from the sides of the cup, then place it back into the cup and build the next row of quilling. When I had built the cup up to tea cup size, I took it out of the cup and made the handle.  The saucer was done in exactly the same way. When both pieces were done I sprayed them with several light coats of Stiffen Stuff

Using 12" strips of red and green, make 5 loop wheat ears and pinch into petal shapes.Crimp a 12" strip in yellow, coil and glue to center of flower. This is really pretty ornament if you make two poinsettias and glue them back to back.

ringcoil-point.jpg 

 Ring coil Poinsettia.

 The petals on this poinsettia can be as large or small as you like.They are determined bythe size of the "ring" you wrap the strips around. If you use a pen the petals will be small, if you wrap around a prescription bottle they will be larger. Wrap the strip around two  or three times and then pinch ends and glue. Use tight rolls for a center and you are ready to go!
