Recently, I shared a video tutorial on making a quilling paper rainbow umbrella on my YouTube page.
I had filling that page up with a lot of my previous posts from this page, but that was a brand new project, so I had to share it here too!
This umbrella is a totally different style than a lot of the work I share, but it’s always fun to try something new.
You will want to make sure you grab your printable template of the umbrella and the raindrops.
To do so, you can click on the image below for your own printable copy
This umbrella may look really simple design at first glance, but there is quite a bit of work involved.
It’s a fun way to play with the technique of filling (almost) an entire layout with tight coils. And the wheatear raindrops are a bonus. Plus, there’s loads of space to practice on-edge work, too.
Or, you can use your own creativity and fill in those segments with the quilling design that you choose. Maybe some swirls or even load them up with some beehive for loads of texture!
Watch below and get crafty or just save this one for a rainy day!
Whew! That’s more like it! I got an email yesterday that I thought it was from you, but it was all nonsense words, kind of scripturish stuff, and none of it was involving your wonderful crafty work…Actually, it was like thirty messages, I simply deleted, but I wondered if that meant that you had been hacked, or if I had been hacked or if Gene Hackman had been hacked… So glad to see this one! Great stuff!
Yes, thank you for your patience and understanding! I had a major malfunction while completely redoing my website and all those emails went out without me knowing about it! I apologize 😬 Thank you for sticking with me through all the spam!

So pretty and surely a “labor of love”. That’s what’s so relaxing about quilling though. Thanks for showing us this great project.
Thank you so much!
Thanks so much for taking a look!

Hello, what size paper do you use for your work? Do you always choose the same size or do vary the size for different projects?
The vast majority of the time I use 1/8” strips (3 mm if you’re using metric). If I make a project with a different width strip, I’ll always mention it!
