Quilled Eid Mubarak Card Tutorial

ACraftyArab Quilled Eid Mubarak Card TutorialQuilling seems to be picking up speed as a craft lately.

This is just all too exciting for me to witness as I’ve been quilling for about four years and it’s nice to be able to share this craft with so many others.

So inspired by the popularity of Quilling, which was started by nuns during the Renaissance period by the way, today my oldest daughter and I made this Quilled Eid Mubarak Card.

Supplies

Solid color cardstock
Double sided tape
Blank card
Decorative edge scissors
Tweezers
Quilling tool
Quilling papr
Glue

Print out the words Eid Mubarak on your color cardstock.  Make sure it’s the same size as your blank card.

Now the quilling fun begins!  Using your quilling tool, start making shapes, but don’t glue anything down just yet.

Your shapes should include loose circles, tight circles, S scrolls, C scrolls and any other ramdon spades you want to make.  Our pieces of blue quilled paper are only about 3 inches long, so they will fit into the outlined letters.

Start placing the quilled shapes inside your outlined letters.   You wat to play around with what fits and doesn’t fit.

After all of the shapes have been put inside the outlined letters, now you can start glueing them in.  You don’t need that much glue to hold them in, however, I’d recommend glueing the shapes in several places: to each other and the outlined walls.
