The Quilled Snowflake






Quilled snowflake ornaments are a must have during the holidays 

for your family and friends! This particular snowflake pattern is 

fairly easy and with a little patience, quilling strips and elmers glue 

you could  have a gorgeous keepsake to add to your gift 

giving list! I like to add the Snowflake Poem on a tag along 

with mine. 




Tools: Quilling tool or toothpick, tweezers, template  is nice to have, glue, and quilling paper strips 


First Step: Using your quilling tool whether it is a toothpick, a slotted tool or not you will spin your strip of quilling paper into a circle and make it the 3rd  circle from smallest to largest on your template tool. Shown in photo above, note the circle holes. You will make 18 of this size and after gluing the end down to close the circle you will pinch it on both sides forming what is called a marquise. You start the snowflake by gluing six of the marquise together as shown in photo above.


Second Step: Glue 1 inch strips or little longer can always trim down later. Glue in between marquise shown above.


Third Step: Glue in pairs on the strips till you have used all of the largest sized marquise.

 Should look like photo above.

Fourth Step: Make 12 circles in the 2nd circle from smallest to largest on your template tool. Pinch into marquise shapes. Attach these 12 shapes around in pairs on the strips. Should look like photo below.


Fifth Step: Make 18 of the smallest circle on your template tool. Pinch into marquise shapes. Attach 12 in pairs on strips. Trim the tails if needed and attach remaining 6 marquise onto ends when dry shape as needed.
