Quilled Papercut Picture- Kiddy Valentine

I love paper cutting as much as I like quilling and wanted to combine the two, so this is what I came up with. I have used multi strip method to create the scallop around the heart. I made simple quilled flowers using the petal shape and I used scallops to make yellow and pink outline flowers.

On hind sight I think I should use longer strips to make the flowers so they will be dense and hold the shape better. I also struggled with getting the scrolls uniform, even though I have the circle template. It always pops out when I try to get it out to glue it. So I have come up with a home remedy which I am experimenting on. I also discovered how to make the petal look like the pic below despite using printer paper.
Will share my discoveries in a later post.


  1. This is so beautiful and your paper cut is also very perfect. It must have taken a long time for such dense quilling . I use printer paper too.

  2. You make beautiful cards, flowers,... everything! And the explanations of quilling techniques are really helpful, thank you! Best regards from Poland :)

  3. Thank You madax1402, I love quilling but I love sharing knowledge even more.

  4. Thank You Suganthi. Yes, did struggle with the flowers trying to get uniform petals and shaping, but was a learning curve. Forced me to learn to make better and more uniform basic shapes. You will see the difference in my next piece!!

  5. You have some beautiful pieces here. Thanks so much for sharing them with us.

    I have discovered that rahter than using the circular rulers to hold shapes, I picked up a cork board and pins. Seems to be working fine so far.....

  6. Hi Lauri, I agree, the cork board is far easier. Personally I use my tube method to make the coils when I need uniform sizes. I find this the easiest.If size does not matter, I allow it to unwind between my fingers or on the tool itself. For gluing, I use 2 pins on a rigifoam base or a foam base.

  7. Thank you for sharing your wonderful knowledge I just love ALL your tecknecks Jenny Australia
