Hi everyone!!! Ime here to share some tips on paper quilling. I learned all of these while making my December projects. Hope it helps specially for those who are just starting or interested to do paper quilling.
When turning the paper using the slotted tool, try to make the edges of the paper even. The outcome would be nicer.
The paper roll on top isn't even the bottom two are.
What I do is to push the paper a little to my thumb and using my index finger to guide it. I'm so sorry I couldn't provide photo.
The first two rolls on top are done with some paper extending the slot on slotted tool while the other two are done with the paper exactly at the edge of the slotted tool. Really makes a difference.
Before I start rolling I break the paper fibers by pulling the paper like streching it using my fingernail on my thumb to put pressure on the paper.
Happy Holidays!!! and Happy crafting everyone!!!
