Cost saving cards for Christmas: Quilling

I’ve made a donation to Kids Company this year instead of sending cards to the 30 children and nursery workers at Munchkin’s nursery, work colleagues and friends. 

I’m making cards for a few special family members and decided this year to have a go at quilling.  It’s super fiddly and I ended up covered in glue but I’m pretty pleased with my first attempt.  It’s got a kind of shabby chic groove going on.  You need a special tool and quilling papers which most good craft shops sell.  Hobbycraft have a beginner quilling kit.

There’s some lovely patterns on the internet you can copy – this angel quilling christmas card is very pretty and if you get really good you can make christmas decorations too – here’s a snowflake quilling christmas tree decoration.
