Christ­mas bauble

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Masterclass Christmas Quilling -

1 Round­ing all the cor­ners, layer a 113mm square of white card onto a 120mm square of red card. Stamp a sen­ti­ment onto the white card us­ing black ink. For the stem, glue two 80mm brown strips to­gether to thicken and at­tach up­right onto the white card.

2 For the pine nee­dles, make a 12mm loop at the end of a 160mm medium green strip and glue in place. Bring the strip around the first loop to make a slightly larger loop. Con­tinue for the rest of the strip. Glue down at the end. Re­peat to make 14 light green nee­dles and 14 dark green nee­dles.

3 For the bauble, cut a 47mm cir­cle from red card. Glue two 450mm red strips around the cir­cle, up­right, to cre­ate a bor­der. Roll a 225mm red strip into a loose coil, pinch into a semi cir­cle. At­tach a 160mm strip of red and a 160mm strip of white to­gether at the ends and roll into a tight coil.

4 For the pat­tern, roll a 225mm white strip into a 12mm coil and pinch into an eye shape. Re­peat eight times. Roll a 225mm white strip into a tight coil and glue cen­trally, as shown. Glue the el­e­ments to the stamped panel and at­tach to a 145mm square white base cov­ered with blue card, to fin­ish.
