Quill Springtime Cards

Rustle up these Springtime treats using the age-old art of quilling

“Quilling, it’s as simple as twiddling your thumbs!, says Pat Green, and we tend to agree although there is definitely an element of skill required to create these enchanting springtime posies. The gentle art of quilling is ideal for decorating all manner of papercraft items to suite any occasion. By simply using the correct tools and pinching a basic coil with your fingers, you can create a range of delicate quilled shapes. The pretty spring florals illustrated here are made from only four of the numerous coils that you can use. Framing the finished pieces, then edging the cards and box with co-ordinated quilling papers will give a professional touch to your creations.

Glass Gift Set

Paint florals onto a glass gift set to enhance the décor

Glass painting never fails to impress. It looks sophisticated, but this beautiful craft is very easy to master and here Jill Alblas shows us how. Flower motifs are brilliant for beginners as imperfections in the shape of the petals really won’t show, and when complete, the eye is drawn to the lovely jewelled effect of the colours instead. If you’re a complete novice we suggest starting with the card or tag as these are `quick makes’ and will help you build up confidence. Our pretty mirror and vase could be your next step. They will enhance any room and certainly be admired by all. As transferring a pattern and working directly on a mirror can be tricky, we’ve shown you an easy way to do this.

Say ‘Mother’s Day’; think flowers. It’s the traditional present of the occasion, but boy, don’t they get boring? Why not treat your mum to something a little more unexpected and craft together a gift project with a gorgeous floral pattern instead? This gift would not only last much longer than the average posy, but shows real thought and artistic flair. But don’t fret, these pretty little designs don’t require you to paint like Monet, they are just copied from templates that Sharon has kindly provided for us!

Folksy Bird Designs

Tags:
craft, floral, papercraft, spring, templates,

I was so excited when asked to do a master class on paper cutting. It’s a technique that I have admired for quite some time. The lovely thing about paper cutting is that you don’t need a lot of supplies to get started, most of the items you will already have in your craft stash. I’ve decided to show you the technique using tracing paper, so that you can then create your own designs. I’ve come up with a lovely spring like bird illustration which is suitable for beginners. The key to successful paper cutting is a sharp knife and most important of all, patience! The technique can be quite time consuming depending on the intricacy of the design, but it is still a very relaxing craft that produces stunning results.

Glass Painting

Outliner acts as a barrier to stop glass paints from running. The technique is simple and rather like icing a cake! Before you apply it to your project, test the out-liner on scrap paper, squeezing the tube gently until the leading flows smoothly. Hold the tip just above the surface and practice drawing a few shapes and lines. When you feel comfortable with the technique, work directly onto your project

Delicate Quilled Floral Designs

Celebrate the arrival of spring with Janet Wilson’s delicate quilled designs.

Huskings quilling was first used (and probably devised) during the Georgian period and the technique is an excellent way to make odd shapes that don’t always work when the more traditional closed coils are used. Why not turn these lovely quilled blooms into greeting cards? Friends and family whose birthdays or anniversaries fall in the early part of year would really appreciate them. The snowdrop can also be used as an elegant embellishment for a sympathy or ‘get well soon’ card.
