Reference Materials

This category is chock full of free information and reference materials to help you on your quilling journey. If you are planning to teach a class, feel free to make copies and share with your students. Most of them are scans so just click on the image and copy and paste it into a document and you will have them  on your computer for future reference.

 A Brief History of Quilling-this is a one page history compiled from some of my favorite quilling books. For a more in depth history check your local library (or even Amazon) for a copy of Betty Christy/Doris Tracy's book Quilling paper art for everyone.

Basic Closed Coils-this is  a handout I used for classes, it is actually a scan-so just copy the image and paste

Open Coils-this handout show severl open coils and examples of cobining open and closed coils

Husking, Wheatears and Alternate Side Looping-these techniques are not as common-this handout simply illustrates the basics of these techniques

Borders-Lots of quillers get "stuck" on how to get started making borders-this handout gives you some helpful tips

Fringe Flowers-this handout gives you some variations on how to combine different color and different size fringed strips. When I started quilling many,many years ago we all fringed with a tiny pair of scissors. Then a quiller's husband, who was a tool and die maker, invented what we call the "Fred" fringer which was made in the USA marketed by Lake City. Then came a long line of copy cats (mostly imported and most left something to be desired). Paplin products puts out a nice fringer also made here in the USA. In addition to fringers we now have quilling die cut machines which cut fringed strips and the newest gadget is a fringing scissor that has five layers of blades. We've come a long way from the "old" days.

Paper Punch Flowers-this sheet shows some very basic (and small) flowers that can be made with everyday punches you can find just about anywhere. 

Roses-this sheet gives step by step instructions for making roses (one petal at a time) I make them using 3/8" paper and frequently use different shades in the same flower. They look like porcelain roses and have always been a favorite with my customers and students.
