Handmade Christmas Card [Baubles] by cakecrumbs Handmade Christmas Card [Baubles] by cakecrumbs
A week of moshing to The Living End has apparently caught up with me and I'm a bit sick. So I used the down time to make some Christmas cards. Here's the first.

Used a combination of quilling, paint, an Epic Six machine for the lettering and mainly a good old craft knife for this one.

It looks amazing! How did you do the swirling paper?

I cut strips of cardstock and used either my nails to kink it or wrapped it around a needle for tighter coils.

Lovely idea. I should get around to making mine soon... XD How do you get the quilled paper to stay stuck down?

Thanks. :] I just use craft glue to stick it usually. Couldn't find my glue yesterday though so used some annoying glue that didn't bond well. But the paper is light so it doesn't take muck.
