A Step by Step tutorial on how to make paper quilled greeting card. An excellent hand made gift for your dear ones..

There are times when I wonder what to gift my dear ones on their birthday, anniversary or any such occasion. There is no dearth of gifts and cards that I can find in the market but they lack personal touch. While searching for such gift ideas luckily I came across something called paper quilling.

Paper Quilling is nothing but an art of rolling paper strips to create designs. This technique can be used to create greeting cards, wall hangings, earrings and a lot more.

This reminded me of my school days (good old days) when I used to make greeting cards. I was in an hostel so buying a card from the shelf was not always feasible and to be honest there was more fun in getting creative and making cards from materials available. I loved presenting those cards and gifts to my mom and brother and seeing the love and appreciation in their eyes.

Anyways, after years I have tried my hands at making greeting cards again. And this is how they look.

Step 3 – Create boundary or add birthday wishes from other cards

Once you have the basic card ready you can embellish it by adding boundaries, or pasting wishes cut out from old cards.

In my first card I have used cut outs from old card and in the second one I have added orange colored boundary.
