Bendy Bandaging

Just discovered/invented/came across a new variation on a very old quilling technique – bandaging.  I’m calling it Bendy Bandaging because it can be bent and will stay in virtually any shape you put it.

Wrap your bunch of strips as tightly as possible and glue only at beginning and end.  Two layers will do it.

It’s great fun twisting and curling it into a multitude of shapes.








The big question is – how to make use of it?  Well, I do need a badge for the upcoming Quilling Guild Celebration Weekend so here’s how it turned out.

PS  Have a go at Bendy Bandaging yourself and find some quilling uses for it.
