Quilling is truly a versatile craft – you can make so many different kinds of coils! And each shape contributes to a special shape that can be mixed and matched with others to create interesting patterns. We showed you how to make a Quilled Christmas Wreath Ornament before. Here is a quick guide to different kinds of paper quilling folds required for the Christmas Gift Tags.


Paper Quilling Folds

How to Make a Quilled Tight Coil Fold

To begin, insert a piece of quilling paper into the slot of your quilling tool. Try to get the edge of the paper and the edge of the slot to line up as perfectly as you can. Roll the tool with your dominant hand either toward your body or away from it; whichever feels most comfortable to you. Hold the strip tight with your other hand.

To make a closed coil, as you near the end of the strip, place a small amount of glue near the end of the strip and roll to complete. When you remove it from the tool, do not allow it to expand — that’s what keeps it tight.

To make an open coil, remove the coil from the tool and allow the coil to expand. Once it has fully expanded, add the dab of glue and press the strip down carefully to secure.

Place an open coil between your thumb and forefinger of your non-dominant hand. With your dominant hand, pinch the paper where you want the point to be to create a teardrop shape.

You can create a marquis shape by first making a teardrop shape and then pinching the opposite end as well.The marquis’ final shape is determined by how much the coil is pinched or pressed together and where you place the center of the coil.
