Crazy for crimping!

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

I decided to create a new header for my blog.  It’s actually a close-up of my Quilled Rainbow Fish that I made for display at Craft & Hobby Association tradeshow.  Not only does this fish show the beauty of crimped strips of paper, but it show the incredible colors of quilling paper we offer!  Earlier this year, I added 6 new colors!

We have new shaded mix packs and paper sheets!

Our newest tool, The Deluxe Crimper, is hot!!  Kids love it and there are so many different ways to use crimped strips.  The tool has two different sized crimps, fine and course.  It can crimper paper strips up to 3/8-inch or 9mm.

Roll a crimped as is OR sandwich the crimped strip between to flat strips of paper.  Be sure to roll the paper gently so that the crimps don’t flatten out.

For a quick and easy jewelry project, roll a few different strips of crimped quilling paper.  Then glue them inside our jewelry pendants or rings!  Pearls are my favorite, but gems will definitely bring out some bling!

This fish pendant shows the new shade of oranges.  I’m in love with these colors!

Enjoy!

Where has time gone?  Well, I back sharing ideas with you and inspirational projects!

I’m excited to show you the next book that I’ve written, “Quilled Flowers” published by Lark.  A lovely mixed of projects for all types of quillers and crafters.  It definitely was a huge project to work on since I tried to cover all different kinds of flowers.

My Heart to Yours – Mother’s Day Quilled Necklace

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Tomorrow I’m going into my daughter’s fourth grade class to teach them how to quill!  I can’t wait!  We timed it perfectly so that the kids can make a pretty pendant for their mom as a Mother’s Day gift!  It’s quick and easy!

They can even pick out their own background!

I used a 1-inch punch (by Fiskars) and my left over scrapbook paper to punch different circles. This is a great way to use up those small scrap pieces!

Here’s how to make it the QUILLED HEART NECKLACE:

1. ) To make the heart, roll two 8-inch (20 cm) strips of RED quilling paper (1/8-inch wide) into teardrops and glue them together.

2.) Glue the circle piece into the pendant (most craft glues will work!).  You can find the pendant on our website, “Round Necklace Pendant“.  They’re super light and the perfect depth for quilling!

3.) Glue the heart inside the pendant.

I’m still debating whether I’ll put the Crystal Coat Glaze on top of their hearts.  I know it’ll look fabulous with the shiny covering, but there won’t be enough class time to let them dry. :(

But…we’ll frame the necklace inside a tri-fold card with a circle cutout. Then they can decorate and write a special message inside!  Too cute!  I can see this being a nice Valentine’s Day gift too!

Wishing all the moms out there a wonderful weekend!

Finally, our NEW Jewelry Quilling Kits!  ”Romantic Roses” and “Modern Waves“ Necklace quilling kits! The “Romantic Roses” kit won the Top 20 Innovative Product at the Craft & Hobby Association trade show!  Quilling is finally gaining popularity and some well-deserved attention!  People were amazed at what you can do with strips of paper!

The kit makes two pendants! I found a wonderful clear glaze that not only helps bond your paper to the pendant, but it leaves a nice thin coating over your quilling. “Crystal Coat Glaze” is so much fun to use because it spreads easily then hardens the quilling like it’s porcelain. It’s so cool! A little tube goes a long way too!

The pendants are lightweight and 1/8-inch (3mm) deep. Imagine ALL of the possibilities you can quill in these pendants! Check out  our jewelry supplies!

Here are more pictures from CHA!
