Husking Equals Quilling Fun!

.

Another busy week here at Custom Quilling, loads of new inventory came in.

Back in stock is the Quilling & Husking Pack from Jane Jenkins


And new to the scene are a series of husking cards (templates) from Elizabeth's Creations. These are compact cards offering every combination of husking designs you can imagine.




What's cool is while they last we are offering a free emailed husking pattern with a purchase of any of Elizabeth's husking cards or boards.

What is husking you ask?!?!? Well not to show my age but its kinda like the old string art where string is wrapped around a series of pins set into a pattern. Except husking is done with paper!


The imported papers from the United Kingdom have also been restocked, we quillers just love the texture and colors of these strips!

Enjoy and hope you have lots of quilling fun!

Free Quilled Wheat Pattern

With autumn in the air I thought this the perfect pattern to share.





Supplies

1/8” quilling paper gold & tan
Cardstock in gold

Chalk in gold
Adhesive
Quilling Tool
Scissors

Card Preparation
Optional step: Cut then fold cardstock into desired card size. Cut an oval out of scrap paper; place the paper from which the oval was cut out on the card and lightly chalk the inside oval with gold. The edges of the card may also be chalked.


Assembly
For each stalk of wheat roll 7 - 8” strips of gold, forming a teardrop, leaving a tail of about 1/2”.
Cut the tail at an angle so that a point is form at the end; slightly curve the tail to the outside.
Glue shapes to a 3” strip of gold on edge, starting at the top and placing three shapes on each side. Making sure the curved tail faces out. Repeat the process for the other two stalks.
Cut each stem at an angle, glue together at stems, add a strip of 2” tan with the end cut to a point to form two leaves. Curve and add to each side of the stem group. Wrap and knot all stems with a scrap piece of tan paper, cut ends at angle. Lightly glue the finished wheat to center of oval.

Happy Autumn and enjoy!
