Have you ever wanted to start quilling words?

The second quillography design is here! I hope you like it and through it you’ll be inspired and encouraged to continue in your quilling journey.

Fell free to comment below or share this article!

In my first tutorial I gave more details on how to start quillography. Take a look here.  

Do you want to quill the word JOY? You can find the pattern in this post.

If you have not done any quilling letter before, you might think is super hard.

But, do you remember the first time you started quilling?

Maybe you thought it is not for you, but you gave it a try.

This happens again with quillography. Another “fear” you need to put aside and focus.

Follow the instructions below and you will learn how to quill a letter.

Why not start with your name’s initial?

I started by adding glue on the letter line but later i came to the conclusion that it is better to add glue directly on the strip of paper and then apply it to the guiding line and it does dry faster.

For the letters that need to be quilled inside, i start from the center and then continue quilling the outer shape.  If i’d start from the edge, when i quill inside i would probably touch the strip of paper i just glued and need extra time to fix it.

I filled the first letter with straight strips of paper and tight little circles that gave a nice effect.

This letter was also filled with horizontally strips on top and bottom, and in the middle i made them to follow the middle circle’s orientation.

    […] Filling the letter – this is a very important aspect of the design you want to make. Handmade gifts have the advantage that they can be personalized, this helps you create something you know the receiver will like. I usually fill the interior of the letter with basic quilling shapes: tight circles, loose circles, marquises, teardrops or even straight strips of paper (see the pictures).
