Conjure up the scent of spring with this dainty floral collection from our new quilling designer, Claire Willis. The quilled petals are given structure by coating them in a layer of PVA glue, which when dry makes the finished pieces hold their shape really well. Arrange them on a card blank as you wish, or pop a bunch into a small vase to brighten up a mantlepiece.

Make a Paper Houseplant

flowers, paper flowers, paper plants, papercraft, plants,

“Swiss cheese vine, also known as Monstera obliqua, is one of the plants I have long coveted and delighted in. I love how expressive and different each leaf is. The “Swiss cheese” holes always vary in size and location on the leaves, giving each leaf its own personality. It takes patience and finger strength to cut out all the holes, but the results are worth it. I’ve styled the plant in a pot, but it would also look great in a hanging basket, or in any place where it can show off its flamboyant character.” Corrie Beth Hogg, Author

Felting Ellen Kharade

Ellen’s tip

When using felting needles, make sure you hold them vertically while working the stabbing action, otherwise the pins may snap

Helen Philipps works up a springtime gift set with a novel twist

Got the stitch itch? We’ve got just the project for you! This embroidered Easter trio would make the perfect gift for a kiddie’s birthday, but do be careful of the buttons. Our advice is: if in doubt, replace with thread - simply sew little round circles or flowers instead of any easily-swallowed embellishments. Helen’s project is also a great one for newbie stitchers as her designs are small-scale and super easy to follow. Once you’ve got your confidence up, why not adjust the dimensions and work up the cute leaping bunny as a wall hanging? You could even sew the little tot’s name and birthday underneath the rabbit for a personal touch.
