What do you need for Quilling?

What supplies do you need for paper quilling?

Essential supplies include paper strips (either pre-cut or cut yourself), a slotted tool for coiling, adhesive for gluing the quilled shapes down, and a surface to display your artwork. Beginners should use 120 gsm paper if cutting their own strips, but I recommend buying pre-cut paper when first starting.

How long should quilling strips be?

A standard 8.5″ x 11″ paper is the easiest to find, but most quilling patterns use strips that are 17″ or longer. If you can find the larger size to cut, it will be slightly easier for follow-along projects. If not, however, don’t sweat it! A little glue is all you need to get the correct size.

Can you use PVA glue for quilling?

Our Extra strong quilling glue is an even more permanent, good quality PVA glue, particularly suitable where one surface is not porous – eg. when sticking paper strips to certain plastics. It dries clear.

Can you use construction paper for quilling?

A high quality children’s construction paper can be suitable for quilling: it’s usually thick and the colors are vibrant. I cut paper using a craft knife and a metal ruler, several sheets at a time, as I wrote in Quilling Basics. … I also use the colored paper from IKEA’s MÅLA packs.
