Whoooo Has Seen the New Paper Quilled Owls?

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

 

If you’ve been following my etsy shop or my facebook page, you will have noticed the new line of owl jewelry that I have out!  I was really excited to come up with these designs.  I’ve been thinking about making owl designs for at least a couple years!

Since I have also been wanting to work on more tutorials, I was thrilled to also make a tutorial for these adorable designs!  I debuted the jewelry a couple months ago, and finally put the finishing touches on the tutorial today.

So without further ado, here is my tutorial for four different owl designs! Plus, each design comes with instructions on how to make multiple sizes!  Currently is is available in my etsy shop.  Soon I will also have it available on Meylah and elsewhere.

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).

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.

*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 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:
