Heart Templates






1. Glue the red construction paper to the printed side. You can do the same to the other side or leave it blank. Then cut out a heart frame shape using any heart shape you like. Examples of heart shapes you can use are below. The frame should have a width of 1-3 cm so you can glue the quilled paper circles on it.
2. Use the 22 cm long strips of paper to create quilled circles that are over 1 cm in size. Otherwise, use the 11 cm long strips for smaller circles.

3. Roll and form several circles between the sizes of 5 mm and 1.5 cm in size. Placing them in a quilling template helps get the perfect size you need and holds them in place until you need them. Then remove each circle once at a time and glue the end down to hold it in place.

4. Then arrange and glue them onto the cardboard heart shape as you like. It is ok if they hang over the shape a bit. It makes the heart look more interesting. Cover this side of the heart completely. If you want to use the heart as a wall decoration, then you are already finished. If not, then turn the heart over.

5. Repeat the previous steps for the other side of the heart if you would like to use it as a hanging ornament for the window. To attach the string to hang it, place the open ends of the string it at the center point of the heart and glue the quilled circles over it to hold it down.
6. Continue covering the heart until the entire second side is covered.
