Today I have a quilled name plaque in Winnie the Pooh theme !
I am sharing a step by step pictures of making this name plate :) I have used only basic quilling here!
This art is also called Quilling Typography
It requires a lot of patience and nurturing, just as you would take care of a baby. Moreover since it's paper, making corrections is extremely difficult. Everything we do is a learning process and paper has its limitations because it is very fragile.
However, there are also few crucial points I would like to add in keeping your typography neat and tidy:
I like to use PVA white glue for all my typography works. It dries faster and hold your paper pretty nicely. A quick tip: I usually put a dash of pva glue on a paper plate and leave it for a while. By the time I started quilling, the glue would be sticky enough to hold the quilling shapes and dries faster. It would also be easier for you to clean if you mess up.
If you’re just starting typography, use thicker paper for the typography outline.
The bigger the letters, the easier it is to quill. So start with big-sized letters. Once you’re familiar with it, you can give smaller-sized letters a try.
Practice makes perfect. With lots of practices, and researches, I’m pretty sure that you’ll find your own favourite style :)
Typography quilling is one art that requires lots of patience, and sometimes it took me days, or even weeks to finish (and few papercuts here and there). Don’t easily give up. The above tutorials are THEIR ways of doing it, but you can always bend the ways, and create your own. :)
Give it a try, and good luck!
This is the name plate after being framed :) The receiver is a 3 yr old toddler n he loved it!!
