Supplies to make the Quilled Christmas Presents Gift Tag

How to make a quilled square or Rectangle shape

To make a diamond or a square, first, you need to create a basic marquis shape. After shaping, rotate the marquis 90 degrees and then pinch both sides again. This will create a diamond shape. If you want to make a square, gently open up the shape between your fingers to complete.

Rectangles and squares are made very similarly. The difference is in how much you rotate the marquis shape before pinching additional angles. Rotate it only slightly before pinching and then open the shape to reveal the perfect rectangle. You can also add 2 differently colored strips together to form a square or rectangle.
