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.

Anatomy of a quilling

I’ve had some questions lately about how I create some of my quillings. At the risk of spilling all my secrets, I thought I would use my latest shop listing to have sort of a mini-tutorial.

Since I usually quill my items to be about…
