Multicolour quilling flower tutorial!

Hello again!
We are closely coming to the end of August and September is just around the corner. Today I had the opportunity again to make my second quilling tutorial for this month. This particular quilling flower seems to be a favourite among my followers on Instagram and many had requested me to make a tutorial for it. I've been trying to find some free time to do it the past few days and only today I had the chance, alhamdulillah.

Although I'm not that great at making video tutorials, I do what I can with what I have and make it happen. I really hope in future I'll be better at it. 

Well, this multicolour quilling flower is a little different from other quilling flowers I've made before. One thing for sure is that the quilling papers are not like the ones I've been using for my other tutorials. This particular quilling paper is longer than the usual A4 printing paper's length. I really like it a lot. 

The width of each quilling strip is 5mm and the length is 390mm. So, if you are using the A4 printing papers as your quilling paper, you may need to join 2 quilling strips together to make each petal of the flower, because 1 quilling strip is not enough.

Yellow and orange combination

Purple and pink combination

There are many colour combinations you can try out to make this flower. I tried making it with the blue and purple combination and that really was nice. But of course the pink and green combo is always a favourite with me! You can try yellow and orange or purple and pink! That will be lovely too!

Do check out the video below and give it a try! Have fun quilling! ;)

Husking leaves design with quilling comb

It's Friday! Believe it or not, this week I've been really busy quilling. I started quilling again after taking a break from it for months. I share a lot of what I've been making lately at my Instagram @azlinaabdul almost every other day. What can I say, it is easier to share photos there hahaha :D.

Come to think of it, it's not like I have stopped quilling completely, because I did do some minor quilling for my one of my Raya card designs this year. Well....just a little, hahaha!! I think the last time I did any quilling video tutorial was way back in February. So long ago! I guess it's high time I make new ones!

I've been working on some ideas for quilling video tutorials this month and I'm starting off with this simple husking leaves tutorial. It's really easy to make and looks really fancy. They are great for quilling beginners. 

Once you understand the method, you can make them in any size that you want. You can even make flowers with this leaf design. I'm having fun making leaves with this method instead. I have plans to use them a lot on my handmade card designs soon.

First time ever, I am doing a quilling tutorial using quilling papers that I cut myself using razor blades. They are a bit wider compared to the shredded quilling papers that I've used before. The width is 5mm and 297mm in length. But it doesn't matter because I'm still learning how to cut them without the use of any machines. Using the razor blade is a pain but I'm getting the hang of it. Someday I'll try and cut them smaller in size, maybe 2mm or 3mm.

So guys, do check out my latest video down here and try out yourself and have some fun making leaves! ;)
