Quilled Christmas Card

In today’s post I present to you a beautiful design. This Quilled Christmas Card is easy to do. I found this design on the internet and I liked it, then I taught I’d give it a try. This free tutorial will show you how to create a Christmas Tree which you can use to decorate a card for someone you love.

You can use two shades of green to give the design a nice effect, but one shade would work just fine.
I cut the strips by hand but you can use a fringer quilling machine which will last shorter time. The Christmas Tree can be decorated in many ways so feel free to use your creativity and personalize this design.

 

Step 1
You will need 11 green (2 shades of green) strips of paper (30 cm long and 1.5 cm wide), glue, scissor, slotted quilling tool (optional).

Step 2

Cut the strips of paper the way you see in the pictures below. If you have a fringer machine then this is the moment to start using it in this design. Using the machine will help you speed up your work, which is very good.

Step 3
Roll the strips of paper as a tight circle using a slotted tool or by hand.
Glue the end of the strip and let it dry. Start pressing down the short strips of paper. It looks like a flower that opens the petals.

Step 4
Arrange all the quilled flowers to form a Christmas Tree. See the pictures below. I glued some pearls inside each little opened flower, to imitate the Christmas Tree lights. Feel free to decorate your design the way you like it.
