A few weeks ago we shared our little button picture with you.
We’d always planned making one with my initial, too – and here it is!
While we wanted the initials to match, we also kind of wanted them to be different. That’s why we’ve opted for a quilled paper initial for this little new arty addition to our home.
Because we want the pictures to kind of go together, we started by printing a template letter in roughly the same size as the one we printed for our button picture.
Whilst it was really quite an easy little project to do, it was really fiddly. Basically all you need to do is curl the paper and glue it together to make your design. There are loads of amazing quilled letter examples around on Pinterest, that are great for some inspiration.
Here’s what you will need to make one and our cost breakdown:
Ribba frame from Ikea – £3.50
Quilling Paper – Already Owned (but you can pick up an assorted colour back for around £1.50)
Quilling Tool – Already Owned (a quilling tool costs around £2.50)
Piece of Card – Already Owned
Glue – Already Owned (We love using wood glue for most of our craft projects. It always glues really well and dries clear)
Total Cost – £3.50
Together with the button picture. this one is now also on our dining room shelves.
