Instant Download of Tutorials

Last week I was super excited to get an e-mail from Etsy for one of their updates.  I have been waiting for this update for a LONG time!  Finally when you purchase a digital file on etsy (like my tutorials) you can instantly download it instead of waiting for the store-owner to send you your files.  Now if someone buys my tutorials in the middle of the night they can have them right away!!  I have uploaded all of my tutorials onto the etsy server, so all can be instantly downloaded.  Since then I’ve had a few sales of tutorials and it still feels strange (but great!) not having to send the files.

Click here to go to the tutorials section of my shop.  Most listings there are for my PDF tutorials.  However, you’ll also see some ready-made kits there (not made by me).

Tutorial for Making Paper Quilled Earrings and Pendants in Teardrop, Marquis, and Paisley Shapes

I have another tutorial to share today!  This has been in the works for quite some time, and finally I took photos of the finished pieces this week so I could finish up the tutorial.  And it’s ready!  This tutorial has patterns for seven different designs.  They come in teardrop, marquis, and paisley shapes.  The paisley are some of my favorites!

As always, my tutorials have MANY clear photos of the process of making them.  This tutorial has in total more than 125 photos!!  Even if you’ve never done paper quilling before you can make these earrings following the directions in the tutorial.

Finally, the long-awaited and long-worked-on tutorial for these awesome paper quilled animals!  I’ve had several requests for a tutorial for these animals, and finally it is finished!

This detailed pdf tutorial has 18 pages and more than 100 photos!  There is a printable page with the patterns for the dolphin, elephant, and two sizes of seahorse.

Although these designs are more difficult than beginning quilling designs, the instructions are detailed enough that even a beginner (with patience and practice) can make these!

Tutorial for Paper Quilled Dinosaurs

Big, scary Tyrannosaurus Rex

Majestic Apatosaurus

Lumbering Triceratops

Mighty Stegosaurus

avatar all dinosaurs

What child is not intrigued by dinosaurs?  What are these mighty creatures who are seen so often in books but never in real life?  I wonder at what age a child truly understands that there used to be dinosaurs on the Earth, but no longer.

Do you have a child who loves dinosaurs?  Is there a dinosaur themed party coming up?  Need to decorate a dinosaur themed greeting card?  Here is your solution!   Use the art of paper quilling to create your own paper quilled dinosaurs!

A lot of work goes on behind the scenes when creating tutorials.  When I am working on tutorials I often feel guilty for not posting more often, as if I’m not doing any work.  But really, it takes a long time!  From creating designs, taking photos, editing photos, compiling photos, writing the tutorial, and so forth.  I feel a great sense of accomplishment once I am able to share all that I have been working on!

So here is my newest tutorial, paper quilled dinosaurs!   These awesome dinosaurs can be used to decorate frames, bookmarks, greeting cards, placecards, door hangers, notebooks, magnets, anything really!  Here are some things that I have used these dinosaurs for:

A paper quilled dinosaur frame

Paper quilled dinosaur party gift bags

Ayyam-i-Ha Gifts From Etsy

I have to admit that I am partial to purchasing things from etsy.  I have a shop there and I like to browse other shops and purchase from them.  If I need to purchase a gift for a family or friend, the first place I look is etsy.  When I wanted to purchase some cloth diapers, receiving blankets, and other baby stuff, I went to etsy.  It’s a great place to shop!

Baha'i nine pointed star handmade jewelry earrings necklace

Today I want to highlight some of the shops that sell Baha’i items that would make great Ayyam-i-Ha gifts.  I’ve noticed over the past couple years that more and more Baha’i themed items are showing up on etsy.  Awesome!   I’m going to list them alphabetically here, give links, and a short description of the items they have.  Note that this is NOT all of the shops that sell Baha’i items.  To find even more, do a search for “Baha’i” or “Bahai” in the etsy search bar.

A Tiny Seed – This store has been around for quite awhile!  I have always admired it.  Gorgeous art prints, ceramic pendants, and more.

Azadiart – Fused glass pendants.  Search in the shop for “Baha’i” to find the Baha’i pendant.

Baha’i Gardens – This is a new shop.  It has gorgeous wire wrapped jewelry!

Fine Art By Nicole – Lots of beautiful jewelry. The Baha’i items are gorgeous Greatest Name original art, and nine pointed star pendants.

Karen McCants’ Art – Original art and prints.  Search for “Baha’i” in the shop to find the children’s art painting.

Little M Creations – Headbands, hairbows, and more.  A children’s Baha’i prayer book is available here.  We have one, it’s great!

Love Bits & Peaces – Unique jewelry.  Search for “Bahai” in the shop to find the Baha’i inspired pieces.

Misha Blaise – Fun artwork and prints!  Do a search in the shop for “Bahai” to find the Baha’i inspired pieces.

My Little Cards – a brand new shop!  Cute Ayyam-i-Ha cards with promise of more to come.
