The technique of quilling leaves with paper strips has been shown. Leaves can be made in different patterns – here two such patterns are shown. The technique shown here is also used to make flowers and various other designs. Let’s see how to quill leaves…
How to make a Quilling Leaf:
We start with a paper strip and a quilling needle.
Quill to make a coil.
Use glue to secure the coil.
Pinch at one point in the coil to get a tear drop leaf. This is the simplest leaf design and is used in a variety of quilling projects.
I’ve made this leaf using quilling strips in two colors glued together. Make a loose coil just like how we did in Type 1.
Hold the coil at the center using a pair of tweezers.
Now bring the sides together to get the desired shape.
Use glue to hold the two sides together and to complete the leaf.
These are just a couple of designs in which leaves are quilled. A variety of other designs can be quilled too; based on the type of project, the design is chosen. Will try to update a few more types…
