Love Bug Gift Tags

It’s time for the next version of The Crafty Mail! I’m so excited to be in the February box, and the theme for this month is Love Bug. How cute is that? I’m a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. I love that there’s a whole day devoted to love and hearts and so I decided I would mash up both parts of the theme, love and bugs, to create some ladybug and bumblebee Love Bug Gift Tags. I tried to…

How to Make Mini Quilling Paper Snowmen

Autumn is over, so its time I figured out what design I could use as my in-package freebies for the next season. But since this is a really crazy time in the Craftery household, I took the easy way out and went to one of the themes I used when I first opened my Etsy shop…snowmen! I love snowmen in my home decor so the next logical step was to quill snowmen for my store! I’ve made a few different…

How to Frame Quilling Paper Art

I get asked a looooot of questions about my quilling process and how I create my paper decor. I love to help and provide any information that I can about my technique, but what I get asked the most are questions about framing the finished product. How to frame, where to buy frames, and most often, can I just do the framing myself before I ship. Now I’ve taken care of the framing before, and I’ll happily do it again,…

How to use Quilling for Scrapbooking

Not long ago I was approached to teach a quilling class for a local scrapbooking group. Because of my expertise (expert, me? what?!?!), I was going to help this group of ladies learn a few basic quilling techniques to create some embellishments to jazz up their scrapbook pages. I was so excited, ya’ll! I designed a simple idea to coordinate with the class’s monthly theme, which was Seaside. The best part of this new adventure was that I was also encouraged to…

How to Make a Quilled Paper Grapefruit

This post contains affiliate links, where I would receive a small fee if an item is purchased. However, there is no additional charge to the buyer and I only post about items I truly enjoy.  I really enjoy creating quilling projects inspired by everyday objects.

Skull and Crossbones Quilling

Sometimes it’s a good idea to get out of your comfort zone and just say yes. I was recently contacted by a friend who asked me if I would be able to create a custom skull and crossbones quilling paper piece. Yikes! Anyone who knows my work, knows me for quilled cupcakes and puppies. Quilling a Jolly Roger was totally foreign to me! Honestly, my first thoughts went to a negative place. All I could think was “no, I’ve never…

Quilling Paper Flower Bud Gift Tags

Traditional quilling techniques are very often used to create intricate scenes of flowers and plants. Since I am a self-taught quiller and I tend to work in a more modern style (and sometimes I just make up the approach as I go), but as I grow and expand my shop, I’ve really begun to appreciate the beauty of classic quilling. Here’s some insight into how I create my new flower bud gift tags. I just recently starting using a comb in…
