Flower Power Valentine Tutorial

Take some patterned and solid color paper... add a rolled heart flower to make a non-fussy Valentine. Perhaps lasso a child to help - they usually love quilling!

Supplies are so simple for this one... chances are good you have everything you'll need already on hand.

The full tutorial is on Craftzine.

Yes! A quilling cruise!

Last week I heard from Jean Smith of British Columbia about what just might be the first quilling cruise ever. She and her friend, Joan Rombough, members of a quilling group in Victoria, are extending the invitation to all quillers. The Volendam will depart Vancouver for Alaska on July 6th and return on the 13th. You don't have to be interested in paper quilling to join the group... spouses, relatives, friends, and neighbors are all welcome. Book through Jean and Joan's agent, Vanessa.

  1. great tutorial ann. and you are so right, little hands LOVE quilling! i keep finding tiny little quilled things around the house!

  2. How sweet and simple. I enjoyed the tutorial ,you make it so interesting. I love the way you have used a pen and tooth pick to roll and cut strips from an old postcard .And you are right kids do love to quill. They learn just by watching.

  3. At the rate I'm going in my attempts to learn quilling, my baby will be old enough to try it with me! ;)
