How to make two tone tear drop shape quilling flowers

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…

Colorful quilled heart card


I got a little carried away today and made this colorful quilled heart card with a purplish pink theme. I've always loved this color combination :). It's a soft and sweet combo. 

Actually.......what happened was.....I thought of using this design for the next blog giveaway.....I was thinking of a simple design that I can do for the prizes......since this time around I need to give away 6 cards for 6 lucky people. So I can't do something that would be too overly complicated.....coz then I might not have the time to make them. Hmmm....decisions decisions......

To be honest......this design looks so easy right? So simple......but the fact is.....it is quite time consuming.  You know why? Because the quilled paper are not of the same size.....they are randomly quilled paper of different length and different color. I wanted to make sure there aren't many gaps in between them....so that's why they come in different sizes. Big, medium, small and teeny weeny quilled papers.... :). Right now I wish I have a paper shredder.....hahaha......coz I really hate the cutting part.....I just love to quill the paper....not cut them hahaha LOL! 

I was also thinking of the wordings to put on the card.......I couldn't decide on what to write on it......or print on it......or stamp on it......errrmmm....I guess it would be pretty hard to stamp on it since the paper I used for the card has texture on it.....so I can't stamp on it just like that.....coz then the stamped wordings wouldn't look even on the card or can be seen clearly on the card because of the rough texture.

Sigh.......I'm still in the experimenting phase......this card is not finished yet......still have to worry about what to pop in the inside. I still can't decide what to do. This card is quite big.....half A4 size.....so the heart is quite big as well......thus requiring me to quill more paper in order to make the big heart shape.... gosh...I wonder how many quilled paper I used for this heart....probably near 100?? Donno laaa......too lazy to count hahahaha.....

Hmmmm......anyways I still can't decide what size, shape or theme I'm going to do for the June 2010 blog giveaway.....should I just stick with this heart design or do floral patterns? Perhaps I should do another poll to for readers to vote for what they prefer for the next prize ya? That could probably help me decide. Anyways....if you have any suggestions....I would love to hear it! Thanks! :)

The heart is gorgeous Lin! And the quillings are so neat! (mine always end up in a mess coz I don't have enough patience haha) And I don't think it's 100 quilled pieces, quilled heart this size kurang2 300++ quilled papers dia..

Buy the paper shredder la Lin, x la tension nak potong kertas (one of the main reasons why most people gave up quilling - x larat nak potong kertas halus2). I bought mine @ RM29 aje. Dah setahun guna, still ok.

Mama Zharfan....thank you! Nanti bila you dah ready nak order, you let me know la ye! ;)

Miyyah...Thank you!! Memang penat gila semalam I wat quilled heart nih...rasa macam nak gigit2 jer kertas tu!!! hahahaha! Tension sangat! Tu la kan...I really need to buy that paper shredder if I want to continue quilling....sebab tangan pun dah sakit dah potong kertas halus2 nih....I'm trying to find it here in Alor Setar tapi masih belum jumpa. So hopefully I get to find it at the place you mentioned when I go to KL soon. Really2 gotta get that one! hehe!

Asma' - huhuhu.. RM210.. mahal tu! Yang shredded paper dia saiz berapa tu? Masa mula2 survey shredder, jumpa kat popular juga, tapi mahal sangat n takde size nak, tak jadi la beli. Pastu one day tiba2 terrrjumpa mini shredder kat IT Hyperstore, kat Curve tu, saiz 0.3 mm punya, priced at RM29 (half A4) & RM39 (for A4 size). Terus rembat hehe. Nak shred sambung usb port aje, xyah plug in. :P

ka miyyah: sambung usb jek?? huhu.. makes me bertambah2 rs sgt kerugiannnn :'(
