Winner of 2014 Craftsy Pattern Design Awards - Paper Crafts Category


quilling snowflake grid

Wow, Christmas came early! I had no idea Craftsy held an award for top pattern designs and am delighted my Quilling Snowflakes Grid  won this year.



Using a grid is essential when quilling snowflakes because our eyes can detect when just one arm is a tad off. I used mine to create these snowflakes many years ago (one day I'll update all those credits I made when blogging as Crafting Creatures) and keep meaning to make a pattern one day. Until then I hope you'll make your own unique snowflake with the help of my free grid.

  3. Hi Cecelia, beautiful snowflakes! Template is fantastic, wish I'd been able to use it last year; I ruined a beautiful Christmas card with my wonky snowflakes - they looked fine till I glued them down! I might try again now. Thank you for sharing this. Karen x

    1. Oh no, sorry to hear that Karen. Yes, mine have that problem too. So now I kind of poke it a few times before gluing. If I feel it's too wobbly to begin with, I simply add more quilled arms to connect the dainty bits before gluing. It's a new year - give it another go!
