How to make two tone tear drop shape quilling flowers

Image
We are coming close to mid February and I'm blogging about something that I did last January! LOL! It's been a month since I last blogged here. And soon enough, after this I'll be blogging a lot more on what I did last January because January was so packed with crafting activities. Unfortunately, I just didn't have the time to blog about them then.
Last year I made quite a lot of this two tone tear drop shape quilling flower for my customers. I made quite a lot of cute thank you cards for them and decorated them with this flower. I even made a birthday card with this type of flower. Since so may requested for a tutorial for this flower, I tried to make one for them. I don't always get some free time to do it, but when I do, I try to make a few if possible.
I do hope many enjoyed the tutorial I uploaded on YouTube.....and tried to make this flower your own. For those who didn't manage to check it out earlier at my YouTube channel, you can check it out at the v…

My first quilling tutorial for 2018. ☺☺☺
I wanted to do this simple quilling leaf tutorial since last year after I made the leaves for one of my  handmade cards. There was a lot of demand for the tutorial after I made a blog post about the handmade card. In fact I did make one video tutorial of the quilling leaf last year but there was some major mistakes that I did in it therefore I couldn't upload it on YouTube. Ever since then, I never had the time again to do another one till today. Waahhh sibuk sangat ke??!! Hahaha! Oh well! At least I did try to make it again this year. The first of many more to come in shaa Allah. ☺❤
When I made those quilling leaves for my handmade card, the leaf was pretty simple. Basically I just used the same technique as I did the quilled sprigs and just wrapped the sprig with another piece of quilling paper around it to make it look like a leaf with veins. This year, I thoug…

Hello again! I hope you are not disappointed to see me updating my blog with a post that's not related to quilling or handmade cards. I guess I'm taking some of my free time from card making and quilling to pursue my joy in other types of craft. I want to make this year, a year about learning and experimenting on new crafts and expanding my skills.
Anyways, this year, after finding joy in knitting, I wanted to also find back the joy in weaving. Knitting, crocheting and weaving, all use the same the material, which is yarn to make scarves, sweaters, blankets or whatever we like with them. So after starting the year with knitting, I thought of weaving or maybe after that, try my hand at crocheting too, which I have also tried many years before but was not really good at it. Who knows, maybe this time, I'll be much better at it right? Hahaha! God willing! 
I believe this is not my first time experimenting on weaving. I've tried it a few years ago but on a very small A4 si…
