Take a 20 inch long (or longer) quilling strip and use the slotted quilling tool to coil the whole strip. Take out the coil from the tool and allow the coil to loosen up freely. Once you are satisfied with the coil size, glue the open end of the coil to secure it. Now glue the loose coil on a piece of dark color craft paper; I used grey.

Carefully cut the craft paper all around the coils’ outer edge.
