*EDIT*  Make sure to visit my NEW blog and subscribe to keep updated with quilling tips, tricks, inspiration, and free tutorials!

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!

These paper quilled dolphins, seahorses, elephants, and turtles are great for jewelry (earrings and pendants), magnets, pins, frames, gift cards, and anywhere else you’d like to showcase these cuties!

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!

Get this tutorial now in my Etsy shop, Honey’s Quilling online shop, and Meylah. 

 

Love the designs, but don’t want to make your own?  No problem, I have them available as jewelry in my etsy shop!  You can even custom order them in any colors you’d like! Click on the photos to go to the different listings in my etsy shop:

What Paper to Use for Paper Quilling – Buy or Cut Your Own?

butterflyrainbow pendant1

Some of the questions that I get asked most frequently are about paper quilling strips.

Is it worth the extra expense to buy pre-cut strips?
Can’t I just cut my own?
Can I use a paper shredder to cut strips?
What type/weight of paper can I use to cut my own strips?

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
