Quilling Christmas Snowflake Card (4 of 5)

This version is more structured, but I'm struggling to keep the arms pointing straight. After using 1/4" strips, I tried to go back to 1/8" width and it felt incredibly flimsy. Funny - I never imagined that!

What is your preferred width for quilling snowflakes?

  3. LOL, yes I struggled with those angles after I removed the pins. Don't you wish there was some kind of spray that made it all stay in place?

  4. Another beauty! Since I am still DREAMING about quilling, I didn't even know papers came in different widths! What size is common, so that when I finally get to try it, I get the right size.

    1. LOL thanks Four11Lady! I would say the "right size" is whatever you like. Most prefer 1/8" width, but in the case of snowflakes, I really enjoyed making them from 1/4" width. If you happen to have a paper cutter, simply cut your own just to play with it. 24lb bond paper for the photocopier is just fine for tight small items, but with my larger sweeping curves, I prefer something heavier like at least 60lb bond or text weight. It's hard to find but I manage at some art supply stores. Thanks for asking your question!
