Hello creative friends! I have been on a paper crafting kick this month, and thought I would share a fun project with some of my favorite paper quilling tools. I know paper quilling is often though of an older form of crafting, but there are actually lots of new trendy ways to use quilling paper! And it doesn’t have to be as time consuming as you think. You can easily make simpler projects that focus around hand lettering and quilling paper like this pretty hello spring sign!
Quilled hello spring sign supplies:
- Darice Wood Sign
- White Paper Quilling Strips
- Darice Quilling Tool
- Quilling Adhesive
- Core’dinations Mixers Paper Flowers
To get started, you are first going to hand letter on your sign the phrase or words you want your sign to say. I just kind of free-handed mine, but there’s lots of inspiration on Pintrest! Draw on your sign very lightly, and erase any pencil marks that you don’t want.
Use your quilling tool to help you place the quilling strips in place, and make any slight adjustments needed.
Quilling can be time consuming, especially when waiting for glue to dry. GO slow and be patient. And if your lines aren’t perfectly straight, that’s okay too!
Oftentimes when paper quilling, your hands can get really gunky from the glue. Be sure to have clean, dry hands. I wash mine and scrub off any adhesive in between each letter. In all, it took me about three hours to quill my whole hello spring sign.
When you are finished, you can embellish or decorate your sign however you want! I used a Darice paper flower kit for mine. The flowers come in white cardstock, and I just used color spray to tint my flower to give it some depth.
