On Craftzine you'll find the basic quilling guide I promised recently... information about getting started, tools, and a few simple Valentine projects that feature the teardrop coil, one of the most common quilled shapes.
If you'd like to replicate the card, I've included a link in the Materials section to the file where you can print out the watercolor background paper.
Or maybe you'd rather make a pendant.
Then again, how about a jar filled with chocolate? Yum - good choice!
Quilling 101 - Have fun, and if any questions come to mind, don't hesitate to ask.
