In this month's issue (May issue 143) of Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine there's a fabulous free gift of a 3-in-1 quilling kit! It includes 60 quilling papers and two essential tools (including a circle gauge ruler which is very handy!).
I was commissioned to create five cards and a tag using the papers and tools from the kit. I have to say I never used a circle gauge ruler when I was quilling before but now having used it I think I'll always use it! It makes it so much easier to create uniform shapes. I really liked the colours of the quilling papers too, really lovely shades to work with.
I made a variety of cards for different levels of experience, the balloons card is definitely the easiest and quick to make if you're new to quilling. There's full step-by-step instructions in the magazine on how to create each card. The cute owl I used on a tag but it would look great on a card too.
Of course I included some flowers, one of my favourite things to quill. Also in the feature are a quilled cupcake card, scroll filled heart design and a butterfly in flight. You should still be able to pick up a copy in your local newsagents or supermarket, the next issue is out on the 19th of May!
That's all for now, thanks for dropping by!
