  • How to make a snowflake. Quilled Snowflake Decorations - Step 1
    Step 1

    Have your materials and equipment to hand. Begin by quilling lots and lots of sheets of paper into coiled circles. Tear some of the paper strips in half or quarters to create different sized circles. Pinch some of the circles into different shapes. Use an egg carton or chocolate box to keep the shapes organised.
