Quilling “thanks” pattern


Earlier this year, I expressed my thanks to everyone who has ever given me encouragement, or helped my book process along. I had meant to give this thanks “quillography” pattern to you in return for all your support and the timing got a bit derailed with my Craftsy adventure – a happy diversion of course, but a delay in being able to give this to you sooner.

I'm so happy to tell you I've finally got the pattern files drawn out now! Each stage of every letter is illustrated step by step (wish I had the time to take photos too). Please bear in mind I haven't had anyone test these files yet at all, so if you notice anything a little off, please do email me at paperzeninfo (at) gmail.com.

All my e-newsletter subscribers will receive this quilling tutorial in PDF soon. To receive your free copy, simply subscribe and the welcome email will automatically give you a link to download it right away.

  2. Do you have some sort of envelope, or box you put quilled card in?

    1. Great question, Brandon.

      I mostly hand deliver my cards and make my own boxes. Here is an example of a box I designed with a window so they can see what's inside it: http://paperzen.blogspot.ca/2013/03/3d-cake-collection.html

      For cards that need to be mailed, I buy a sturdy box made for jewelry, and then encase the box with bubble wrap. The box still got a bit dented going from Canada to US, but the card itself was still ok because I made sure there was a lot of depth in the box.

      What kinds of 3D cards do you make Brandon?
