Quilling Art Instructions II

There are more techniques for quilling and open coils, also called scrollwork, open up another world of possibilities and can add a delicate touch to a quilled item.

The difference with the previous quilling instructions is that with open coils you do not glue the end of the paper strip after coiling. This gives more opportunity for all kinds of different shapes and forms.

Paper quilling instructions:

Open circle
Easy one! Just coil as normal but after leaving it to relax do not glue the end.

Open heart
Take your length of quilling paper and fold it in half. Roll from one end in towards the fold line until a small section of paper is left preceding the fold. Do the same for the other end. Try to leave the same amount of free paper on each side of the heart so that it lines up nicely when finished.

Open V
Worked in the same manner as the heart above, but roll away from the fold line creating the coils on the outside so that the finished result looks like a letter V with outward facing curls on the open ends.

I have not tried this craft myself, at least not yet. Seeing all the end results and the wide array of possibilities however, got me to the point where I would love to apply myself to it and get all the creative ideas out of my mind.

I think I will put them on paper! :-)
