Mini Quilling Paper Crabs - Teeny paper crabs are the perfect quilling craft for beginners | ThePaperyCraftery.com

Recently, I was scrolling through Pinterest when something familiar caught my eye.

It was an old photo from my website that I had completely forgotten about. The original post was about adding quilling to scrapbooking. And one of the examples I had included was some mini quilling paper crabs.

But the thing is, I had never written about how to actually make them.

I had meant to at the time. Then life and my many ideas steered me away, and I never got around to sharing the steps.

And now, I figure if someone was saving the image to Pinterest, there must be others who would like to see exactly how I made them.

So last week, I set off to recreate these teeny crustaceans in a new video. I’ve been moving towards making more and more of my tutorials in video form. I truly believe its’ much easier it is for many of us to learn that way.

In the video, I show you the process for these little guys. I’ve included how long each strip of paper should be and how to make each quilled shape.

If you’re a quilling beginner or just love all things beachy, these mini quilling paper crabs are the craft for you!

Enjoy the video below and let me know what you think in the comments!
