We (the girls) learned a wonderful new craft last night! It was our monthly Keepers of the Faith meeting at church and the girls group learned to quill. In case you’re unfamiliar with quilling, it is a paper craft that is simple and inexpensive, and you can create some really beautiful pictures for cards, scrapbooks, or decoration. It basically consists of rolling and shaping thin strips of paper to create a design. The girls all made a sample card first of various shapes.
Then they made the little tags you see at the beginning of this post. They will need to complete 3 more projects to earn the badge, but Sarah was already working on one right away when we got home. It was a little tedious for Anna, but she and I worked together on it until she got tired. We brought home patterns to make a kitty, an artist’s palette (sp?), an Easter basket, a picket fence with flowers and a scrolly heart, so we will have some fun ahead of us! This is a very simple craft with lovely results!
