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.Download now »
Use fun quilling and plaiting techniques to create cards that are full of charm
In the olden days it was the custom for a country lad to take an evening walk with his lass through the fields during early autumn. As a gesture, he would weave and plait pieces of straw together to make a buttonhole embellishment, and if the couple were courting, the girl would wear it over her heart as a token of her love. Inspired by this delightful piece of folklore, and traditional techniques used by straw weavers and corn dolly makers, these wonderful designs are made entirely from paper. Combined with quilled wheat ears, these projects are perfect for seasonal greetings and gifts. Plus, the tools and materials are inexpensive, giving this idea lots of thrifty craft points as well!Download now »

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.Download now »
