Pretty Papercrafts
For this “fun” picture, trace the reversed template onto the back of some white cardstock and cut out the lettering. Cut an 81/2" (21.5cm) square of white cardstock and glue the letters onto it.

  • How to fold a piece of quilled art. Wall Art With A Flourish - Step 1
    Step 1

    Glue the edges of the paper strips along the outlines of the letters. The best way to do this is to spread out a small plastic bag on a flat surface, and spread a thin layer of glue over the bag. Dab the edge of the paper strip into the glue. Hold the thin strips with a pair of tweezers, press them into place and use a pair of decoupage scissors to trim off any excess ends. The white letters will not be obvious on the finished piece, but they will make it a lot easier to glue the strips on the outlines.

  • Step 2

    To decorate the lettering, attach strips of paper of different lengths, rolled into spirals at one end. To do this, use a quilling tool or trim the tip off a toothpick and cut a 1/16" (2mm)-deep notch in the end. Slip the end of the paper strip into this notch and then roll it up.

    Step 3

    Remove the toothpick/quilling tool and let the paper spiral unwind naturally into place. Dab the edges of the spirals in the glue and attach them to the letters.

  • Step 4

    Glue the picture to the chipboard to give it extra stability. You might also like to frame the picture (without glass) and to add a picture hanger.
