Quilling Christmas Snowflake Card (1 of 5)

For those who know my previous blog, Crafting Creatures, you may be wondering why I haven't been quilling for some time. I have a good reason for that but am only allowed to say it in the New Year, so I hope you'll follow my new blog, Paper Zen to hear the exciting news.

Until then, here is a quilled snowflake greeting card for this year's Christmas. In truth, I don't find my quilling tension to be very even, so I actually prefer more loose designs that allow for that variation. I hope you'll enjoy the next ones to come along.


To download a free snowflake quilling grid in PDF format, simply sign up for my e-newsletter and the welcoming email will contain this link, as well as many other freebie favorites.

  1. Hi Cecilia! Another gorgeous piece you've made! I've never quilled before, but I'm going to have to try - snowflakes (and feathers/wings too) are my favorite motif!

    1. Hi deuxanges, thanks so much! Your comment is what I love to hear - that you are inspired to give quilling a try. If you would like to receive the snowflake grid, I can send it to you if you leave your email. It helps to put it under a sheet of cling wrap and then the whole thing goes on top of a cork board so you can pin the elements as you go. Cecelia
