If you are a regular reader of this blog, you wouldve already read THIS post on Quilling tools where I explained in detail about all quilling tools that are available. I own only a few of them viz slotted quilling needle, quilling board & quilling comb although I create quilled projects.
This is again a quilling tutorial and this is one from the basic series. No quilling is complete without Beehive technique and so here is a very easy and well explained tutorial for beehive technique in quilling.I also had promised a series of quilled flowers tutorial and this is one in the same. You can read about my quilling comb flower tutorial HERE and yes you can also watch a video tutorial for the beehive technique HERE.
Someone had shared these very beautiful quilling comb flowers on facebook and I just loved how neat and simple it looked. She hadnt posted a tutorial and I was sure it was done with a quilling comb. In my previous post on All-about-quilling-tools (HERE), I was telling you guys how I had purchased a quilling comb and not yet done anything with it! Well when I saw this quilling comb flower on facebook, I immediately grabbed my quilling comb and tried the flower and the one petal was super easy! What grabbed my attention was how different the quilling comb flower looked altogether unlike the loose coil flowers of different shapes.
Basic Quilling Tools & Supplies : Exhaustive list with details
Quilling is like the “in” in-thing these days and there are many people who want to try quilling but not able to figure out where to start! Dont worry I have been there and I have crossed that phase right now so long back that I actually am in a position to give some tips for beginners 🙂 Anyways since there was a huge response to my beginners quilling shapes tutorial (HERE) I realized that I should do a post on Quilling tools as well. Not that I own all the quilling tools but I can tell you what you need and what you dont!
I know its sort of boring to see similar posts at a go and trust me its even more boring making them! As you might know I have recently taken the plunge into cardmaking and my cards are very simple to make with hardly any element or twist but I loved making them 🙂 This heart card is very much different from the Confetti hearts card (HERE) that I did earlier since this one is a Quilled card and also I have used stencils to make the background. If you havent seen my previous post on quilling basics HERE, please do check them out because you will be needing them to make these quilled hearts card.
Hope you all found use with my basic quilling tutorials for quilled tight coil HERE and quilled teardrop shape HERE. I have been making these shapes to fill in my quilled wall hanging which is finally over 😀 and this time its malaysian flower 🙂 Well Malaysian quilled flower was apparently a quilling design first made by Solehah Muhammad of My Quilling Soul (HERE) The Quilled Malaysian flower looks very simple but getting the right symmetry on either sides of the petal is a little tough job. Honey in her blog at Honey’s quilling has done a very well explained tutorial on making Quilled Malaysian flowers (HERE) and also has shared some interesting tips and techniques (HERE). When I tried to make these flowers I had to keep repeating the petals again and again because I just couldnt get the symmetry on either sides of the petal and so I devised a way of my own. So shall we get right into the tutorial?
So last day I shared with you guys a very basic quilling tutorial on how to make really FLAT tight quilled coils which you can check out HERE. I thought nobody would want to read such basic basic really basic posts but I was surprised to see the turnout & response and so I figured that I need to share more of my secret quilling tips with you guys 😀
