What is Paper Quilling?
Paper Quilling Designs
Last week I shared another Valentine’s Day Craft that involved paper quilling hearts onto a homemade photo frame.
Today I want to share a fun homemade card that you can make with paper quilled heart balloons, to go with the paper quilling hearts frame.
The two of these compliment each other nicely and make a complete homemade gift that is so beautiful.
List of Supplies
How to Make a Paper Quilled Card
Follow the directions below to make your own beautiful homemade card using the paper quilling art technique and paper quilling tools and supplies listed.
Step 1: Take 2 quilling strips of the same size and color.
Step 2: Create 2 teardrop shapes with both strips like the ones in the photo.
Step 3: Attach the 2 teardrop shapes side by side to form a basic heart shape.
Step 4: Keep the pointy ends on one side and the curved end on one side for both teardrop shapes to form the heart shape.
Step 5: Grab more quilling strips and create more quilled heart shapes.
Step 6: Use 2 strips of the same size and color to form each heart shape.
Step 7: Take a black colored quilling strip (or any dark color of your choice) of the same strips used for the teardrop shapes.
Step 8: Cut the black strip into 4 equal parts.
Step 9: Use 2 of the strips to create open loose coils. Use the 2 other strips to create triangle shapes.
Step 10: Prepare the card or a piece of paper for the balloon art by folding a piece of craft paper in half.
Paper Quilling Tips
Sketch an arrangement of the balloons in your mind before you begin gluing. You can also use a pencil to trace small dots on the paper where you would like the paper quilled balloons to go.
Step 11: Start to glue the quilled hearts on the paper in the planned locations.
Step 12: One by one stick the quilled hearts on the paper, keeping the bottom end of the heart pointing inwards, towards a particular direction on the paper as shown in the picture above.
Step 13: Use the black marker pen to trace the strings of the balloon, joining all strings at the bottom side of the balloons.
Step 14: Stick the 2 triangle shapes on the joint part of the balloons, keeping their wide parts facing outside.
Step 15: Also, stick the open loose coils adjacent to the triangle shapes but keeping the coiled parts facing downwards.
