Recycled Crafts: How to Make a Quilled Valentine’s Box
Happy Friday everyone!
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! If you need a box to put a gift in for that special person, try our simple origami box topped with quilled hearts! We covered how to make the box in a previous post, so we’ll just focus on the hearts today. Here’s the link to the box tutorial:
Now for the quilled hearts!
Strip of colored paper, 3mm wide and 8 inches long
Toothpick or Quilling tool
Start by folding a strip in half.
Next, take the quilling tool or toothpick and curl the edges inwards halfway down, as shown. You can curl one end in more than the other end to add variety.
Next, uncurl the coils a bit and space them out to where it looks more like a heart.
After you have the curls in the position you like, coat the strip in a thin layer of Mod Podge and let dry. At this point, you can place it on a box, and as it dries it will adhere to the box.
See you next Friday!
