Cre­ate th­ese strik­ing sea­sonal cards with Clare Buswell’s quilling master­class

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Masterclass Christmas Quilling -

Quilling is one of the most cre­ative card­mak­ing tech­niques around. Once you’ve learnt to make the ba­sic shapes, you can try lots of dif­fer­ent de­signs and even come up with your own unique ideas. If you’re new to quilling, the tech­nique uses thin strips of coloured pa­per rolled into coils, shapes and scrolls us­ing a quilling tool to cre­ate var­i­ous de­signs.

Th­ese fun and fes­tive cards will def­i­nitely impress your loved ones and are worth the ef­fort for some­one spe­cial this Christ­mas. The projects are a great learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and will help you de­velop your quilling skills. If you want to start off gen­tly, try the wreath first as the shapes and as­sem­bly are fairly easy be­fore mov­ing on to the bauble and the slightly more com­plex wood­land fox. Don’t be in­tim­i­dated by the fox de­sign – there may be a lot of el­e­ments, but by do­ing a sec­tion at a time, it is very achiev­able.
