Quilling - Quilling heart on greeting card

Quilling - Quilling heart on greeting card
This quilling greeting card is a great gift idea for Mother's Day and Valentine's Day. For such a gift in the shape of a heart, you don’t need special skills, just a little of your time, because this is the quilling for beginners. You need a basis for a postcard (cardboard or thick paper), glue, strips of paper. You can cut them yourself 3-5 mm wide from A4 paper, however it is easier to work with special paper for quilling because it holds its shape better. To curl paper quickly, use the special quilling needle. You can buy ready-made, but you can do it yourself. I made a quilling needle from a wooden stick. Another such needle is made from a sewing needle - cut off the top of the eyelet and insert the tip into the cork from the wine bottle. If it is not possible to make or buy a needle, wrap paper around a match or any delicate round object. Twist strips of paper of different lengths and stick them inside the heart outline. When the quilling heart is ready, write a congratulation. If you want a beautiful font, but do not know how to draw it, then put a sheet of paper on the computer monitor and transfer the picture with the desired font. Such a greeting card looks expensive and beautiful.
