Quilling: Ornate Capital Letter

Using a few basic techniques, you can create many inspiring shapes by rolling quilling paper. This tutorial will show you how to make an ornate capital letter. They can be easily framed, and make great gifts at baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings.

Instructions:

1. In a word processor, make a template for the letter you want to create. Make sure that font you choose gives you enough space for your quilling shapes.

2. Print the template and place the sheet on a piece of cardboard.

3. Choose the colour of the paper strips you want to use for the project. Outline the letter with paper by strategically placing sewing pins and by bending the paper with your fingers slightly to follow the curves.

4. When you are ready to glue the ends together, put a drop of glue on the end of one of the strips and spread it with a toothpick. Stick it to the other side and hold it for a few seconds while it sets.

5. To decorate the inside of the letter, roll a paper strip around the quilling pen. Let the little roll unwind inside the circle template. Take the roll and pinch the sides to give it a shape (triangle, square, etc.)

6. Glue the tip of the paper strip to maintain the shape, then place it inside the strips that delineate the outline of the letter.

7. Roll and glue as many shapes as you can fit into the space inside the letter.

Tips

As you’re filling in your template, adjust the pins to ensure that the letter keeps its shape.

To protect your creation, glue it to a foam board and place it inside a frame. You’ll need a shadow box frame or a deep set frame so as not to crush the paper strips. Add ornaments to complete the project!
