Quilling Heart for Valentine Card - basic scroll

Card #1: Quilling hearts with S-Scrolls and C-Scrolls

This card is based on a birthday card I made for my mom in 2007, inspired by a store in the mall called La Vie En Rose. She loved it so much she kept it on her fridge for years.

Length of S- and C-scrolls: 4” long


Quilling Heart for Valentine Card - heart design and loose scroll

Card #2: Quilling hearts with Loose Scrolls

Loose Scrolls look like question marks to me and are combined with easy heart outlines for this card.

If you struggle with accidental glue globs, what I do is set one end down first while keeping the other end up in the air. Then I set the other side down. This way your eyes are not struggling to look at so many crucial areas at the same time.

Length of Loose Scrolls: 3” long

Length of Hearts: 1.5 and 2” long


Quilling Heart for Valentine Card - flower petals

Card #3: Quilling Flowers and Leaves

For this card, I used a die cut punch I bought at the dollar store to make easy leaves. After punching this flower,  I cut each petal loose, scored them in half with my needle tool, then folded – BAM! Your leaves are ready for your bouquet.

Length of Closed Coil Flowers: 2” and 3” long
