Quilled hearts for an easy mother’s day card craft

In France, paper quilling is not much known and I discovered this craft not much long ago. As I love to introduce craft to others (I was a school teacher 🙂 ), I use to write tutorials and explain quilling techniques to my readers on my french blog.

To make sure they will dare to try and quill strips of paper, I showed them, a few weeks ago, the easiest cards I had made, nonetheless lovely cards, which would be perfect for a mother’s day gift or a Valentine’s card.

To make these cards, you just need to three thin strips for each card… First of all, let’s fold them in the middle.

To realise the simple shapes of the hearts, I just rolled each end of the strip towards the inside of the fold (as I didn’t have slotted tool to roll the paper, I rolled it around a toothpick).

Then, I just allowed each coil to relax…

I cut small squares in two different papers and glued the hearts on the smallest of them before gluing them on the largest squares.

For the other card, I used yellow squares. 🙂 These hearts are really easy shapes to do! Even my 20 years old son tried to roll one for his Valentine… 😀
