|Licia gave the heart a different look for this card by gluing the ring coil strips together only at the top curved areas.|
To make a tight coil:
Slide one end of a strip just far enough into the slot so that it doesn't extend beyond the end. Rotate the tool with one hand while guiding the strip with the other.
When the end of the strip is reached, apply a dot of glue to hold it in place. A little tip... before beginning to roll, tear the far end of the strip. A torn end will blend better than a sharp cut so your coil will appear perfectly round. I find that a straight pin or paper piercing tool works well to apply glue when I'm making coils. There are also fine-tipped, refillable glue bottles that many quillers like to use.
Licia added a silvery glint by gluing a metallic-edged quilling strip around each tight coil. Her heart frame also has some metallic strips mixed in with colored strips.
Completely assemble the heart on a non-stick surface and then place it on a journal, card, or mat board after spreading a thin layer of glue on the back.
