Learn the basic techniques of paper quilling.


  • Quilling tool (Quilled Creations tool used here)
  • 1/4" x 11" strips of quilling paper or copy paper
  • Mini glue dots
  • Liquid glue
  • Cardstock and embellishments


  1. Step 1

    Insert one end of the copy paper or quilling paper into the slot in the quilling tool.
  2. Step 2

    Slide the tool as close to the end of the paper strip as possible and begin rolling the paper around the tool.
  3. Step 3

    Keep pressure on the coil of paper while rolling it to keep the coil tight and even.
  4. Step 4

    When you come to the end of the paper strip, keep pressure on the coil.
  5. Step 5

    Gently slide the coil off the quilling tool, keeping pressure on the paper.
  6. Step 6

    Relax your grip a bit to let the coil expand to the size you want.
  7. Step 7

    Where the cut tail of the paper is, pinch the shape to form a point. Adjust the "eye" of the coil to the desired position before crimping a point into the paper. Be sure the tail lines up with the point.
  8. Step 8

    This is what your quilled petal will look like before you glue the tail down.
  9. Step 9

    Add a little liquid glue to the tail and glue it to the quilled shape, lining up the edges carefully.
  10. Step 10

    Pick up a mini glue dot with the "eye" portion of the the quilled shape.
  11. Step 11

    Adhere the quilled shape to cardstock.
  12. Step 12

    Use the quilled shape on a completed card.
