Remember to use a pin to use glue to paste one side only like shown in the picture on the left side of the row of pins
It will look like the picture here
Very gently push onside up and the other side down. With a few practices you should get it wright
glue the center, and you have a sprig of leaves
These are a few that can be created in this method.
I will be posting more designs created on this when I have invented by experimenting. So till I am back try to surf and see if you can find this board . I ordered it from Ali Express

No 1 is a quilling of a pair of Toucans. The male toucan is trying to draw the attention of the female on the above branch
No 2 is a pair of Giraffes in a very romantic mood
No 3 is a Peacock and hen . I have done a similar quilling long time ago
No 4 is tweeter trying hard to impress tweety with his love talk
No 5 Is a couple of swans whispering sweet nothing as all couples in love
Love is in the Air was the theme of a quilling group who was having a challenge competition and wanted me to be the artist of the month. I had not quilled for about 2 years now and was in two minds if I should accept it or not. My fingers had not been working on quilling for some time and I was not sure if I had lost touch of it but it was an inspiration to start again. So I started with the swans which I know is not too good but went on with the peacock then tweety and and the giraffes and last, the toucans
So here is my new quillings for you to judge . Hope to do more this year though God knows what I am going to do with all my quillings

Just chip off the top of the key from near the cut so it will look like "Y".
Now doesn't it look like a quilling needle ?
That is all you need to create the beautiful card I have done on this video.
Now all you need is strips of paper and glue to create whatever you desire with this tool in the way I have shown
Even little children could use it for kids creations. This is my experiment and invention like all my other tutorials. Hope it would help you but please show some respect in not duplicating as your idea cause it has happened to me and many more quillers who are kind enough to share there ideas with others ungrudgingly.

A little bit of history on Sigiriya for some of you who do not know about it (article from the Book Sri Lankan history)
Sigiriya being a fortress, had been well designed for its defenses by having ramparts and moats built around it. There are several approaches to the inner city and the most prominent is the Western entrance. From the summit of the rock, the land areas up to distances of tens of miles can be watched making it hard for the enemy to make a surprise attack to the kingdom.
King Kassapa had reverted his fortress to an ecological wonder by having Royal Pleasure Gardens, Water Gardens , Fountain Gardens and Boulder Gardens made inside the inner city as well as at the palace premises on the Rock summit.
The most renowned is the Sigiriya Rock Paintings or Frescoes of Sigiri Damsels locally called as ' Sigiri Apsaras' painted on a Western Rock face cavity about 100 meters high from the rock base .There now remains around 21 paintings of Sigiriya Damsels but there had been around five hundred paintings during King Kassapa's time along several other places of the same Western Rock face This is one of the largest wall hangings I did in quilling. It is 24'' by 18'' and I have been quilling around 3000 little bits for the picture. The frescos are very old and the colours are not very visible, so I have used my own colours. I bet the paintings may have been multi coloured and very bright cause even after many years of being exposed to sun and rain, they still look beautiful. It took me about a month to complete & wasn't very easy either. Hope you like it

You can make the flowers big or small by the spacing of the three pins in the straight line. This design is suitable for earrings too. The mount and valley fold method is useful, if you don't have a crimping tool. Hope this video would be helpful to you. Have a nice day friend & happy quilling :)
