How to make this quilled but­ter­fly pic­ture

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Quick Makes -

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.
