Little hanging angels made from Vivi Gade weaving paper strips using the quilling technique. Decorated with acrylic prism-shaped beads and rhinestones.
How to do it
Use the tip of the quilling tool to twist the weaving paper strip around it, so it fits into the chosen hole size on the quilling board.
Place the quilled coil into the hole of the board. It slightly unravels but keeps its shape in the hole.
Carefully remove the quilled coil from the board and glue it.
Place the coils in the holes on the quilling board whilst drying.
The coils may be carefully squeezed between two fingers to achieve the desired shape.
Glue the body, wings and the head togehter.
Thread a piece of silver thread through the coils; one at the top and one at the bottom. Use a needle to tie a knot on the silver thread so it is right against the quilled coil. Pass only one thread though the prism-shaped bead at the bottom and let the other thread pass outside the bead. Tie a knot.
Attach self-adhesive rhinestones.
