Comb Quilled Snowflake

Twelve times the piece on the comb made my snowflake but snowflakes are great – six points of virtually any quilling looks good. They are just waiting for your imagination.

From the Eighties – Chicken in a basket!

Spring is on its way and quillers everywhere are decorating eggs to add to their Easter decorations.

This old lady was made from a blown goose egg back in the eighties.  She’s been around and had a lot of handling by students, so is slightly battered!  But that’s fine by me – spreading the skills is the main priority.  This is also the reason I’ve never finished the quilling – so you can see how she was made.

She has a secret inside, as well!

Light Up Your Festive Table!

Heavyweight tracing paper is great stuff!  The calligraphers can emboss their lettering onto it.  The quillers can glue their quilling to it and it can be decoratively painted.

We cut out rectangles 21cm x 7.5cm, decorated with our chosen craft and then curled it into a tube.

Simple (or festive) paper clips can be used to hold the ends together or cutting a simple flap and slot will work.  A flickering t-light will make your work come alive.  Have fun!
