Quilling – Gift Tags

Quilling Quilling Quilling…

Quilling seems to be this weeks project. Mom finds a new craft and gets the most out of it!

During the Renaissance, French and Italian nuns and monks used quilling to decorate book covers and religious items. Here are some holiday gift tags that she’s made by quilling.

  • To make the tag you can use a left over pricing tag as the base. If you don’t have a price tag simply cut one out from card stock and it will work just as well!
  • Then cover one side with paper of your choice and the other side with a different print/color if you wish.
  • Then quill a flower, petal and add a leaf! When rolling the flowers, roll them tight and let them uncoil a little before gluing and pinching to give them dimension.
  • Then tie a bow on the tag and you’re done!

The craft of quilling has become increasingly popular due to the low cost of the material. She got these gift tag ideas from www.theartofquilling.com. There are a lot of other creative ideas to check out on that site as well!
