shown using 1/8 inch (.3 cm) wide paper, with 1/16 inch (.15 cm) accent
This pattern is great to use for Valentines Day, WeddingCards, Anniversaries, any love filled moment or occasion. This is one of the patterns that I made for the "Quilling-A-Day" calendar with the added bonus of some helpful hints that were not able to be included in the calendar.
I think you can see by the picture that they make for such a light, elegant look to your quilled design. The only problem I have found with the S-scrolls is because they are so airy, there is not much glue surface area so you have to be careful with these designs. If you can attach your S-scroll to another shape that is always helpful as you now have an additional anchor point for your work.
Making the Heart Shape
Use the picture for reference and for placement of the pieces
14 - 3 in (7.62 cm) S-Scrolls – Arrange in heart shape.
For a perfect heart shape every time, Draw, cut, or punch out the heart shape and use this shape as your heart pattern.
Look closely at the top and bottom of the heart where the 2 sides meet, I found that the nicest look and shape for the heart happen when you connect/glue the S-scrolls such that they are facing eachother and you glue the bottom.
Embellishments for the Heart. I chose to use Heart Coils to add to the "LOVE" theme (the best part is that you can change the shapes and create a completely unique design):First Heart Embellishment Arrangement:
Note: I have cut the 1/8 inch (.3cm) quilling strip in half, when creating the spirals for a more delicate look. You can also use 1/16 in (.15 cm) wide paper if you have some.
These hearts I arranged on the top, right side of the heart for some added interest.
Please have fun with this pattern/design.
Enoy the Adventure!
Love Unconditionally, Laugh Uncontrollably, and Live Unexpectedly Free!
