How to make this quilled butterfly picture
Depending on how tightly you roll your strips, you may need more or less quilled shapes to fill the butterfly.
Have fun experimenting with different colours and patterns but make sure the wings are the same on each side or it will look unbalanced. ŅUse needle-nosed tweezers to arrange the quilled pieces, ensuring that you are happy with the placement before securing in place. ŅSqueeze some tacky glue onto a plate and use a toothpick to add glue to each quilled piece. ŅIf giving as a gift, personalise the shades of the butterfly for the recipient's favourite colour.
