1. An introduction to what you'll learn: Hello. My name is Ciriaco on us. And in this class you're gonna learn how toe make a quilt letter form. Now, cooling is something that you've probably seen but didn't know what the name of it is. And it's actually the art of taking long, thin strips of paper and coiling and looping them into different like decorative designs. And in this class, you're gonna learn how to make quilt letter forms, which are like these, um, these kind of letter shapes that are made out of, like, thin paper, thin strips of paper on their side. And you're gonna learn a really awesome, like, easy way to make these little forms that I feel like no one else does. Because, um, I'm actually a professional on paper artist. And this is a method that I have developed, um, over the years, Teoh make things a little bit easier and more intuitive s. Oh, yeah. I hope you enjoy this class. Um, and in the end, you're going to get some gorgeous paper letter forms 2. What is paper quilling?: So what exactly is killing? They are taking long, thin strips of paper like this. So this is like a pack of killing paper. And this is like a piece of killing papers was like taking long, thin strips of paper like this and coiling and looping them into different designs. And in this class, we're gonna learn how to do quill letter forms. But the history of cooling is actually kind of interesting. It started out, um, it's around for a really, really long time. There's evidence of it dating all the way back to, like the me evil times. But because squealing is something that predominantly women dio and have done and did in the past, um, they didn't really take a lot of time to write it down or documented at all. So it's all kind of like everything else that has to do with, um, womankind. Very hazy in the history of time. Ah, we do know that it became popular among the ladies of leisure in the Victorian era because , um, it is actually, paper has been, like, kind of expensive for most of history. And so it was kind of like a, um uh expensive thing to have enough extra paper toe like be able to cut up pieces and loop them and coil them into, like, different decorative designs. It also had a resurgence in the 19 seventies. Um, were a lot of like, you know, folk are kind of came back like think of like, Makram a cooling came back in, like that same fashion. And, um, so, like, if you, uh no one calling is you might remember your grandmother maybe doing it but quiet is definitely having a real moment in the sun. Paper in general has been very popular over the past several decades. So coolly is definitely having a leg, modern moment as well. Like, I know, a few years back, I saw, um, Quills, you know, displays at Sephora. And those were all the way in the end. So, like, they must have been nationwide if they made it all the way domain. Um, on, Um Oh, there's all sorts of what might seem like book covers that have quibbling. And if you like Google cooling, you'll definitely be able to tell. But in this class, we're going to learn how to make these gorgeous little quill bladder forms which are so versatile and fun and pretty easy too. Dio so yeah. I hope you enjoy this class. 3. About the teacher : a little bit about me before we get going. Um, I am a paper artist, but I actually have my bachelor's degree in graphic design on DSO. I think that quill blood reforms is really a place where those two things definitely mesh my two passions because I do really enjoy letter forms or fonts. Um, and I really enjoyed paper are and so kind of like letting the to merge is like super fun. And I'm also a professional killer, which is like almost no one's resume. I have been lucky enough to have my, um, work licensed nationally and internationally. I have been featured on a couple of prominent blog's like a colossal, And I was on, like Radio Labs Tumbler, which was kind of a thrill, and I also have been commissioned by Better Homes and Gardens. Teoh do some work for them. So that was all the kind of like paperwork, paperwork willing, especially like those are all like my kind of claims to fame. So, um, you're in good hands in this class because I definitely know what I'm talking about. 4. Project downloads and using your own font : So in this class, I'm going to teach you how to make a quilt letter forms. And, um, the project is actually a Teoh kind of complete a gorgeous little letter form like this. And to do that, I have prepared a couple of files for you down below in the project section, and those are each letter of the alphabet, plus the shapes, which is going to be kind of like the lion share of these videos are actually going to be me doing shapes. Because, um, I actually designed all of the pdf stumble. Oh, to be a san serif letter form. And so that is a, um, choice that I made So that, um, you wouldn't have to worry about, like, kind of like the harder, tricky air fonts that have, like those little itty bitty Sarah ifs at the end. Or, like, really contrast ing fix and thins, which he knew a little tricky. You definitely can for sure do those kinds of shapes. But, um, I wouldn't recommend just starting out with just the san sehr flatter forms that I prepped for you in the files below. Pick out whatever favorite letter you have and start out by just doing one letter, cause it can be exciting to think about like, um, a name or a, um you know, even a sentence you could think about, like, how cool would it be? But I start out with Justin initial just to start, because, um, you know, it's a little tricky, and you don't want to, like, you know, start the whole project that you maybe won't have the, um, passion of finished, you know? So just one or two letters would be, like, a great way to start. And I have actually designed these printouts that are available woman in the download section of this project. Um, I have designed them so that you can actually get to letters on each, um, on each piece of paper. So for this one, I have W's on the front and AIDS on the back. And then all you have to do is separate them right down the middle, just like that. And then you have your A in your w um you know, all all ready to go. So you would like, you know, outlined the w on this one in the A on this one and then you'll have a little bit of the traces of them on the back as well. But just long is, you know, you won't get too confusing. Want to cut him out? And, um oh, I also designed these down loans to be all the same pot, which is I can't remember what fun it is a nice little san serif. I have a little bit of wind Z, but, like, not over your head. Um, you know, like and, um, they are all the same size. So basically how I decided what size they were going to be is I took the largest letter that Elsa bit has, which is a uppercase W. And I just made it all that thought because I knew that the W would fit. And I want to make sure that you would that you would be able to like, you know, if you want a message If you wanted to, like, make like a name for, like, a baby shower gift like that would be so cute. And you can definitely do that. And all of these are going to be all the same size and the same thought so you can do that right within the files that I prepped for you. So I've also designed these in white. Um, and you want to print these off on any kind of card stock? You wanted to be a little bit thicker than the quill and paper that you're using just so that it will have something to kind of stand up against it. Like if you use something that was like a text weight, which is what was most willing paper ends up being, um it's gonna be a little bit trickier. And like, as you can see in the videos to come when you do outlining, you're basically just pressing a piece of pig cooling paper up along the edges in that a little bit thicker card stock is really going to make those edges, like, really stand up to the paper pushing up against that. But just because the letters are white with gray doesn't mean you can't use a colored base . It just means that amusing to find a nice, pretty piece of colored card stock. And that's going to really do the trick. And, um, is there anything else? So I actually made this little screen cast so you can see how to use any font that you happen to have. I'm gonna use a universally available program for this demo, and that is going to be Google docks. So I am just going. Teoh, open up a new Google doc. Son was gonna go ray to, um, Google docks. We're gonna start with a blank in, like you could use any word processing or even like, I mean, I use in design, but that's a little spending for something That's just a hobby. Um, so for this demonstration, we're going to do a capital s through the capital s. And now we're gonna highlight that. And I'm going to pick a, um I think, um, which far? Let's see. I like you know what? How about the San Serif font right here That looks good or no, actually, that's a serif font. And Sarah fonts are fine, too. I just think that they have a little bit more complicated parts to it. So for your 1st 1 try a C on Sarah. So now what I'm doing is I'm changing the color of the leather to a white Emma True highlight yet and make a highlight color in a light gray just like that. And the reason why we use a light gray is because it's going to like if you don't come out exactly perfectly right on the line, the great color will have your back, and it'll look just like a shadow. So now we're going to print these, um, letter forms and the biggest size I could get it to be on a Google doc is 400 point pot, and that was like a little bit small. So if you end up wanting it to be a little bit bigger when you go into your print settings , you can do that by just increasing the percentage that it is. 5. What you'll need : Okay, so let's talk about what you're gonna need for this letter forms project. The first thing that you're gonna want to dio is get a self healing cutting map and you can get these at any craft store. Um, and there's a link down below to one that I like Teoh Onda. Also all of the squealing like official like, exclusive, took, willing kind of stuff All comes in a kit that also is linked below. And I don't get any, like, affiliate link money for that. It's just the ones that I think are I think that can't that I recommend them below is an absolutely killer killing kit that has everything that you need. But you don't actually need to get that kit to Duke willing. You can. We don't roll a piece of paper with, like, just your fingers, Like you really don't need anything more than just like strips of paper. Um, or you could get the, uh, pre cut quibbling paper strips on. I really like those just cause they're easier. I Another thing that you're gonna want to get if you want to, you have to. It's definitely an optional one is called a slotted, quelling tool. And I'm gonna just go in on my he and Cam there for a minute. And a slotted killing tool has a teeny, tiny little slot at the very tip of it. And that, um, slot right there at the end. Um, is where you slide your paper into another kind of non traditional thing that I have is a silicone cuticle pusher. And I apologize that I couldn't find more one that had, like, a fewer quantity available on Amazon. So, like the link that I have, like you could probably just go to like a CBS or like any sort of pharmacy that has, like, a noun care section and just look for like, a little like, um, silicone tips cuticle pusher. And that's going to really help you a mask. Any kind of like blobs of glue that you might have happened to have, because one of the hardest parts about quill ing is making that glue disappear, because it's really just a piece of paper on its side, and so that's not going to give you a lot of room for forgiveness when it comes to like hiding your glue. So that's why I like these silicone tips cuticle pushers and look for them on at your pharmacy or there's link below but has a lot, you know, a lot of quantity because, like little things like this tend Teoh Onley be able to belt be purchased like in quantities of like ah, 100. The next thing that you're gonna need is a little glue bottle and try to find, like, the ultra finest tip blue bottle you can like no joke. So tv tiny does the sea today, I swear, the smaller the better. And actually, for long, long, long, long, long time. I did all of the ANC willing with a fine tipped clicker p pen because that's how like thin I wanted the glue to get. But then I found this in This works just as good. You just want to make sure that it's the teeniest, tiniest little top, and I like to get just like a little pin to put in the top of that to make sure that it's not gonna um, the glue is not going to dry in that little like tip, because sometimes that can happen and clog and be like such a bummer. But if you just keep a pin in there, it works. Great. I am an Exacto knife. Um, it's like to be like an Exacto brand. Any kind of craft knife will be absolutely fine. And you just see that for cutting out the letter forms. You could potentially cut out other forms with scissors, but I like the exactness of an Exacto knife. 6. Cutting out your letter: So now I have my so feeling cutting that out. And I have my, um, letter forms. Well, not water forms. My state's printed out. You're gonna want to print out letter forms, but I have just my basic shapes printed out. Teoh, start the process of cutting these guys. And the first thing I'm gonna do is I'm gonna separate them. So like you saw in the video about the download, you can, um, just do it. One cut in half of your doing letters. But if you're doing the shapes, just kind of separate him out like that. We're gonna start out with, like, the easiest one, and that's gonna be the square. Okay, so I have my everything all lined up, and now I am just going Teoh cut. And you want to make sure that you always have a nice sharp blade in your Exacto candle because that's going to make it. Ah, lot easier. Teoh, get those nice, clean cuts The first time in a little trick that I dio when I am cutting out letter forms is you don't wanna look exactly at the tip of your Exacto blade look like just a teeny tiny bit in front of the tip of your eggs. Actively, it almost word of the shadow of that exactly latest falling on. And that's gonna I know. It's just something about neural pathways, I'm guessing is why that's a better way to Dio. But I always get a much better cut if I'm looking at just in front of where I'm cutting as opposed to like exactly where my blade is, like separating that paper. And now I'm just gonna show you a nice time lapse of this getting done cause I can certainly imagine it's kind of tedious. It's kind. I always find it kind of tedious to cut out in general on regular speed. So no need for you have to watch that just like that. So now that's the square I'll cut out, and I am just gonna quickly cut out all the other shapes to That's the triangle I'll cut out. And one thing that you might want to do, especially for during letter forms, is just take a pen really quickly and to put a couple of dots on the back and bottom of your letter form, and the reason why you do this you. Maybe you won't need to do it with a capital A because you're going to remember which way it goes. You're gonna definitely want to do it with, um let's say A s because you're not going to remember which way those go. I'm kind of obsessed with letter forms that I can't 100% remember which way is up on, Like a lower case s where those two like shapes are more or less the same size. And you definitely don't want to do it with, like, a B D P. Q type area. Like for sure. That's actually why, on the tip of the printouts that you have that actually have the actual letters on them, I have in black in a sansei in a serif font. Just come to meet a little indicator just to remind you which letter you're working with because it can get a little tricky. So let's get this Oh, cut out. - Awesome . So now we have all of our basic shapes cut out. And like I said, I am just doing these basic shapes. Teoh demonstrate how to do each of the different kind of corners and edges and different kind of tricky bits than you might encounter. I find that it would be way easier for me to teach you how to do each of these three shapes . And then you can do the whole alphabet, basically based on just these three shapes. Or I could do every single letter, so I opted for just three free shapes. 7. Outlining round shapes : So now we are going Teoh outline are like little shapes or letter forms. And the, um wait, I do. This is actually a little bit different than anyone else. And I really feel like it's like, extra easy. Teoh do it. So, um traditionally, a lot of people will do the filled area first and then wraps, um, Quillin paper around that. But I find it much easier to almost build like a little container Teoh contain are all of our gorgeous little filling that you're gonna learn later in the video or later in this class. But right now, we're just gonna kind of create the gorgeous little containers that are going Teoh contain all of our gorgeous old coils and loops and all that. And I really think that outlining is like, really kind of key to making, like, a nice, crisp, clean litter form. So I have put away myself feeling cutting that and by Exacto Blade. And I'm going to get out a sheet of wax paper. And I want this to be shiny side up because that waxing this is gonna cannot exact. It's not gonna glue isn't gonna stick to it quite as much. So I have my letter form right here, and I am going to start by taking a um I actually read for this one, but you condemn finitely um, choose any color you want to do this in. I just like red because it's like a nice contrast in color. So what I'm doing now is I'm just going to take my thumbnail and you could use the edge of a scissor if you want. And I'm just gonna almost curlett like your curling a ribbon. But we don't want to get like to to to Carly, like the way that you would curl a ribbon like you definitely achieve that with cooling paper. But you don't want it to Carly because that's going to be a little bit harder to work with . But because we are doing the circle first, the, um just kind of making it. Making those fibers curl like that is going to make it a lot easier Teoh to start out with . So what we're gonna do is we're gonna get our bottle of glue out, and so you I'm my hand camera. I am just going Teoh lay down a little speed of that glue right along the edge of this piece of paper and it's gonna want to break up and beat up a lot. And that's OK. What do you do when that happens? Which is going to happen every single time you do. This is you just want to take the tip of that kind of like the extra, you know, Long part and just kind of move it out and distribute it nice and evenly just like that and that you put it down on your piece of wax paper. Just like that, we gotta quelling paper and I am going Teoh, get that killing paper right there. It's, like so much easier than many of the ways that people traditionally would do quilt letter forms in, like those ways really completely legitimate. I just think that this way is a little bit easier. So now you like this with a little bit of you can see the those glue beads that we kind of like beat it up on there. And now I'm just gonna take my, um, silicone cuticle pusher, and I'm just going to use that to move those extra glue, kind of smooth them out and get him gums, where it's going to make a real difference, which is where the piece of quelling paper and the piece of card stock letter form meat. That's where you want their clue debate. But it's gonna want to like, not be there. It's gonna wanna, like, get up on the side of the killing paper. It's gonna want a slew show onto the litter form. So you kind of want to, like, help use your little beautiful pusher, too. Manage the excess glue and then you can just going to go around on the side And what's that ? Was a little bit too rough. Have to be a little gentle with us and then just kind of push it into that. He's a card stock and well, and now what do you want to dio is, you want to let this dry for a little while. It doesn't have to be like an excessively long amount of time, but it's definitely going to be longer than like I'm going to necessarily show you in this video. So, um, I am going Teoh show you this in fast Ward, and you kind of see, um, like a little account progressing on this. But just know that you should definitely leave, like maybe a minute or two in between. Just to let those glue bond set up, because it's very important that the glue bonds set up in a way that's gonna give you a nice campaigner to put your quill ing loops and coils and, uh, all the other fun stuff. You come up with swirls and all that fun stuff. You just want to make sure that that container that we're building for right now is really gonna hold up. So definitely take your time, like maybe give a little stack and life, do a little like glue moment and then do like a little stack moment that's always nice. Or like, um, something like that. Or like if you're watching a TV show that can always be, and I used to help, um, past the time. Ultimately, if you wanted to, you could do more than one letter at a time. So, well, one is drying. You can go ahead and do like the next little section on the next one. It's all up to you. Just feel it out and see what feels comfortable for you, but definitely you don't want to give plenty of time for those glue bonds to set up. So now I am about halfway through a little over half way through doing my outer, um, ring of the circle shape. So now I'm gonna start doing the interior as well. And to do that, we're going to start out the same way we did before. I just kind of taking it and curling it. I like to use my thumbnail. Oh, shoot. That is too much. I like to use my thumbnail, but you can also use a scissor if you want. And like I did that last one way to munch. So I'm just going back on the other side of that piece of paper. Um oh, that's looking perfect. There we go. So I just went on. So I did it too much on that side. So then I just went on the other side, and it will kind of reversed that action if you make it a little bit too currently. And this is looking like it might be a little bit too curly, but I'm gonna go with it anyway. And no, I am just going Teoh not do any glue at 1st 1st I just want to get this trimmed down to a nice, manageable length because, especially with these interior spaces, you definitely don't want, like, not enough for sure. But you don't want too much. And in these interior spaces like think of like the inside of A B or P or Q R o anywhere where there's like, not like an opening like a sea or a uppercase G just having, like, you know, it's gonna be a confined little space and there's not a lot of room in there. And so the more than you can trim off without trimming off so much so that you're gonna have to use multiple pieces for an interior pieces kind of ideal sees. Want to trim that up a little bit? And I'm gonna do the same thing I was doing, um, on the outside, except I'm just gonna to it on the interior. So let's see if I can get an angle on my hand camera or my Google pixel as it were, I am going to do it, then line on that interior, and now I just want to spread it out a little bit perfect. I like that a lot. This actually has a lot of excess glue on the back. So I'm just going to take my little cuticle on Dwight some of that away and maybe wipe it on the front. So there's still some glue on there just like that. And, um, I mean, wax paper will definitely stand up to the glue, but it's not gonna be like, you know, like the toughest thing against the glue. So it will stick to if you accidentally get, like, a little bit too much on the back. And if you do get a little bit too much on the back and it does kind of stick to it, don't worry about it. Don't sweat it. It's just Yeah, it'll be like super careful when you peel away the wax paper, but it should peel off, especially if you're using the shiny side of the wax paper just like that. And a quick like kind of No, If you, um, are in, like a human place, you will want to give it a little bit more dry time. Teoh let those things kind of set up. And if you're in like a particularly like, if it's like you're in like New England in the winter. Right now, you're gonna meet you want toe work a little bit quicker, or maybe in like a desert type area, just because the less water that's in the air, the quicker that glue is going to dry. So the kind of faster you have to move to get the clue that work. But it's a ah, little bit overcast day in the Pacific Northwest, where it's always, like, usually not too hot, not too cold and not to human and not too dry. So it's kind of ideal here, if you need some. You know, uh, if you're wondering why things maybe aren't like acting exactly, they wait, They are here. Take a look at your climate and see if, um, maybe you need to modify how you do it a little bit more. No. So we're just going to keep on going on the, um, outside in the inside, just like that. So now I have this circle say, phone to and lines. And now, as the last little step, what we're gonna do is just kind of glue these the beginning and end of the strip together by just taking a little bit of glue. And I trim this down, true it down just a little bit more because you don't need much. And I'm just gonna take a little bit of clue and make sure that has a nice amount of coverage just like that. Now, I'm just gonna put it over just like that, and we're gonna do the same thing on the inside. So now we have our circle letter form all outlined, and we just want to set this aside and let it dry. I'd like to let my quill ing dry under a nice, heavy book. I like to use my history textbook. Um, it might seem like it's true delicate to you that they put a night at heavy book on top of that, but that's kind off. It seems like it's not gonna work, but it will work. It seems like the heavy book is gonna crush the letter forms, but they really won't. Killing is actually kind of much more sturdy than you'd think. It waas 8. Outlining right angles: So now we're gonna move on to the square and just start off with the square. We're going to take a piece of willing paper, and again, I'm gonna do it in bread for this video just cause I think it will stand out a little bit. Um, it'll be like a nice contrast. It's the first thing we're going to do is we're gonna take this piece of quelling paper and we're just gonna put a hold on it and make sure the may straight fold by lining up both of the So not like the, you know, like, skewed like that. You wanted to be nice and street. Make sure everything lines right up and just kind of give it a pinch. And that's going to give it a nice crest, but right angle fold. And now we are going to apply our glue the same way we did on the circle. Except we are going Teoh do it right on the corner because the circle really doesn't have any distinguishing marks or features on it. But this square definitely has some some a little bit trickier moments, and it's starting out right off the gate with a kind of trick your moment in the circle. So I'm just gonna take that and distribute that glue just like that. And now I'm going to get out another piece o wax paper and shiny side up to make sure that that extra is gonna be extra resistance that glue with the shining side up and set that down and just line up the corner of that full that we made with the corner of the square. And you can always start a piece of paper, not on a curve or on a corner. But I like to start my quill ing on a curve or corner because that circle kind of gives it the weight. Teoh stand up to itself and so does the circle. So, like, that curb also kind of gives it a little bit more permission to stand up on its side a little bit easier. Now, I'm gonna take out my little, um, spatula, just like that. Just kind of spread out that glue a little that the shay the rest of that side and fast forward. And just remember, toe let lots of time lapse in between. When you pick it up or put it down or those glue bonds won't set up in that paper that you worked so hard to get on their will just fall right off. So now we've got into the next tricky part of this square. Um, it if you just kept going on like this the nice square edge, like the nice right angle that this creates or the square has And, like other letters, have like, let's say, it's like the top of ah, letter H and that has a nice square top to it. Um, you don't want just, like, wrap it right around without folding at first, because it will kind of make a squishy, rounded edge instead of that nice, crisp, clean edge that most funds have. So the way that we're gonna do this is by taking our paper, and we're just gonna jump way gently, gently kind of met, get just right down in there just like that. And then once we get it just about perfectly lined up with the edge of this side, you give it a pinch, and that's going to give it a nice, crisp, clean edge. And now I am going Teoh, take my clue and go along the edge, then we don't want to get too ambitious with this one. And you want to do maybe an inch or two to start because we're basically telling the paper completely new way to go. So you want to make sure that it has time to set up and it's not taxing it too much toe. Have it be too big of a piece we're gonna do just like that. A lot of cool in the back of this on that one. So I'm just gonna take my cuticle pusher and cool on the edge like that, and that's just gonna clean it out. So doesn't step my wax paper because, like, just like with all the outlining that we're gonna be doing in this class, you don't want too much glue to come in contact with that wax paper, cause the wax paper will, like, resist the glue. But it's not gonna be like the most is the same thing to the glow. So just like before we are going, Teoh, do the interior of the shape now, and we are going to start out by giving that little piece of paper a little bit of a fool's right there, and that's gonna make the interior right angle. And like before on the circle, I'm just kind of kind of roughly loosely lay this guy out and make sure there's, like, way more paper than we need, But we don't need this whole strip, so I think that looks good. So I'm just going to cut off some of the excess so that we don't have so much crowding in that kind of small space and you'll see a lot of these shapes as you start to work with them. Some of those interior shape interior spaces can get very, very, um, they can get very tight. So you want to make sure you cut down those, um, those strips to allow for that, and then you could see right there. I let too much glue on the back of this shape, and that's why that paper pulled up in tour. So now I'm gonna take my glue, and I'm just gonna go around an interior corner just like that. And now place that on the wax paper and just like everything else, we're just gonna press that up just like that. And now you're splitting for that. Too dry. Keep on going like that. So now we're gonna work on the corner of this interior. Um, interior square. Can you use this some kind of technique for any kind of, like, weird little interior sponsor you might find yourself in. There aren't too many like square cut outs in many fonts, but, um, you can never really find like, like, funky little interior angles and like, a k that are kind of tricky and stuff like that. Or like that weird little bit of, ah, cue that can poke into the interior space of capital Q, Something like that. So, um, for moments like that, what you're gonna dio is we are going Teoh, start out. By taking this piece of paper, we're gonna slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly. Kind of role rule that right to the edge. Just like that, we're gonna find make sure it doesn't get to slack and just give that a pinch just like that. Perfect. And now, because we have that nice full than there that's going to give us that nice, clean right angle. And now all we need to do is add a little bit of glue. The edges and keep on going with that gorgeous little outline. And if you don't end up giving your first outline done to the standard that you'd like it to be, don't worry too much about it. Um, I have found that there is very little in the world that I am naturally good at right away . It just takes practice like even quill ink, even though I'm a pretty good quill er now and I kind of, you know, like people pay me for it for a really long time. I was not that great at it, and I just had to keep on practicing. So just keep practicing and you'll get the hang of it. And if you do want and it doesn't come out very good, and you want to try the view another one, give yourself a little bit of time. Give yourself a couple of sleep cycles or at least one sleep cycle. Teoh. Go after it again cause you'll find that you'll get so much better after at least one sleep cycle of your brain. Kind of processing all the things that it, um, thought about while you were baking your first letter for him that your second letter formal way. Better if you just kind of take a break and walk away, Um, and think about it for a little while. But don't just jump right in after doing one that maybe didn't come out the best. So now we've got Teoh kind of an end point for the outer edge. So what I want to dio is you can see there that, like, the cooling paper, didn't quite reach all the way around. And that happens every once in a while. They don't worry about it. Um, I am just going to get, like, a little um, for this it's there. It's like a little gap right there. So I am just going to get a little peace from, like, a scrap piece that I've been, um, trimmed before. And I'm gonna gist at a little bit of glue rate to the tip of that. And Klute rate that piece of paper or the, um, one of the end pieces just like that and let that dry. And if you have, like, a bigger than a like, you know Ah, small little gap, you could do the same exact thing just but do it with a full, um, length of paper. Not just a little patch like I'm doing here. I'm so trim that a little bit more You too much. And now I am going Teoh, just like we did with a circle. I am going Teoh to the last little length of that. The patch is gonna cover up and then just add a little bit of glee rate that and just like that And you can add that glue to the other end if you want it. Teoh, if you want to be, um, a little bit cleaner because, like, fully I did it maybe won't come out quite. It's clean by 100% line. And finally we have the Interior Square all done. We're just gonna peel back that left little little portion and add a little bit of going right to the end. Just like that. Spread it out. So it's nice and thin and even, And now we are going Teoh, close it up just like that. And now we have our gorgeous little square complete 9. Outlining acute angles : so that we're going Teoh do that learning on our final shape, which is a triangle. And again, I'm just kind of doing these like, basic shapes so that you can kind of get an idea of, like what to do in certain situations. But like, you don't have to, like, watch a whole, um, a whole alphabet getting outline because she was It's a little bit of a slow process when you think so. We're going to start out in red one more time just because it's a nice contrast in color that you'll be able to like, see pretty well on these videos. And we are going Teoh, just like with the square. We're going to give that a nice, clean knee fold just like that, Yeah, we're gonna got our glue. And in between, using the glue bottle is I like to put a little pin ray in the top of that glue bottle just so that it'll, um, it tends to, like, not clog up quite as much that way and keeps a nice and clean 90. Don't have to get a new clue bottle quite so quickly because they don't last forever. But they should definitely last a very long time. So now I'm just going to get out my blue bottle and just like before, we are going to go right around a corner and again we dio a corner because we want, um we want the piece of quelling paper that we're starting out with. We wanted to naturally be able to kind of stand up on its own because before the glue bonds full form Um, just a just a straight up unfolded piece of quelling paper, um won't have ah kind of balance to stand up on its own and just makes it a lot more tricky to get that first piece on there. But if you start it on a nice curve or on a nice little corner area, that's like ideal because that's going to get you your paper won't like kind of fall over for me. Get out my wax paper just like no even set that she pre on that wax paper shiny side up. And we're just gonna take that piece of cooling paper with that nice, clean, crisp, fooled in it, and we're just putting that fold right at the top angle. Awesome. And now it is going to go and spread out that glue a little bit to make sure that there's optimal surface of the like, You know, because you really just want the glue to be between the piece of paper, that your piece of quelling paper in the piece of card stop, because if it's anywhere else, it's not really gonna do anything. And like I said before, it's always gonna want to be that if it's right on the edge of that piece of card stock like that, it's just always going to beat up. So you definitely, um, keep a lookout at, like, pharmacies or something for one of these silicone tipped cuticle pushers because they are really helpful and just kind of showing that glue where you want it today. Awesome. And again in this video, I'm no sure you like the fast forward version right now just because it takes a long time for these quelling paper clue bonds to kind of set up just right. So just remember that when you're, um, aligning your letter form, you want to make sure you give it like a good minute or two each in between each time you like, put down some glue and smooth it out and like, get it going like just make sure there's a, like, solid minute or two in between, which I'm actually skipping in these videos. So you're not seeing it, But I'm telling you that you have to let it dry. So now we've got to the, um, second corner, and I'm just going to show you that, um, it's basically the same as we're going to do, but we like it's basically the same as what we did for the square. But we want Teoh. I just want to show to you just so you can kind of like, see, like, how kind of similar they are because like you're going to see, like, triangle shapes in like Uppercase A's and like there's lots of triangle kind of shapes and like K's and exes and like all kinds of like, weird kind of not exactly right angles. But, um, you know, like a little bit like more cute than a right angle. And so what we're going to do there and it's a very similar move to what we dio for the square. But I just want to show you going around. Kind of like one of those kind of more acute angles. I am just going Teoh really, really, really gently. Kind of like Let that piece of paper naturally kind of role, right? Until I feel like I can get a nice corner with this thing is angle right there. So kind of look at the angle where it's going to be going, Teoh. And I think that that looks pretty good. So I'm just gonna give it a pin up and see that's a little bit too much like you can kind of like, see that that's been pinched like a little bit too much. Someone's going to go in again and see if I can't get it just right there we go. And actually, this is being a little bit tricky, but I'm gonna show you what to do when you can't quite get in tow line up. Right. So, like I said, um, like I showed you in the square when, um, you can also use this on right angles if you just keep on missing the kind of perfect right spot. Pinnacle, what I want you to dio is cut it before the angle at all. And you don't want to use this all the time, even though it is a little bit simpler just because it's not going to be quite a smooth and clean and nice and outline. So, um, this is a little bit of a tab left on it. So I'm gonna finish up during that tab just to make sure that the whole piece of paper that we are going Teoh that was our piece of paper before. We just want to make sure that that's all, um, glued on a nice, insecure and then we're gonna go ahead and take our piece of quelling paper that has all the kind of, like shady folds in it that didn't quite line up, right. We're gonna go ahead and just give that a trim. Just so it's nice and clean and, um, smooth because you don't want, like, a bumpy old full depart to get into, like, a nice, like, clean, little leg line that's going to come next. So we just want to get rid of that old one that didn't quite work out, right? And now I'm just gonna give this a a little bit of a full just like that. Awesome. And that's going to be enough. You want to make sure that the amount of paper you have right here, um is going to be enough to like meat because we're going Teoh, we're going to glue it right on the better form now, or I mean, I guess the shape in this case that had a little bit too much glue on the back, so it sticks remembered toe check your backs. But I did not do in that case. And now I'm just gonna take out my glue. And just like if we were starting a new piece, we just want to go around and give it a nice little corner. And again, this is just an alternate way to kind of go around corners. I like to kind of keep much of a cooling keeper strip impact as possible. So have this few little sections and, um, points of like, you know, you guys want toe wrap around as much as I can, but if you get a tricky part, that's like not lining up just right. Try this. It'll work today I'm a lay that on a nice, clean part of the wax paper. And just like if I was starting a brand new piece, I'm just gonna make sure that fold that I put in there is right at the corner. And that's gonna be a lot cleaner than that thin if I had kept on, you know, folding and unfolding and folding and folding it. And I felt like a little teeny tiny little millimeter was worth of space. That's like kind of like the, um, crucial moment, you know? So like, you just want to make sure that, um just like if you were starting a new piece and that's only if you get into, like, a really tricky spot, like like that one waas where it wasn't quite cooperating the way we wanted it to, so that I'm just smooth out some of that glue. And sure, it's pressed rate up into that Kurds stock and trim that down. It's the teeniest bit because you don't want too much overlap I don't even know you can like. See, it's just something that I think that looks like a lot more clean, polished. If it has as few kind of like start and stop pieces in a piece of writing paper like that. Yeah, I'm just gonna glue those two together. And that is a nice alternate way of going around a corner. And you can use that on right angles, too. It's not just for acute angles, but I think acute angles or maybe a little bit harder to, like, get the full just right. So if you if you're not getting it, try that now. I'm gonna take out a new piece of paper, and I'm gonna do start the interior. So just like the inferior before, Um, for all of them, we want a smaller piece of quelling paper, Thani. Ah, whole strip is, but not too small so that we're gonna have to, like, use multiple pieces. So I think I think I could go a little smaller than that. So I think that looks good. It's going to be enough of that. Um, it definitely will cover the whole interior space, but not so much that it will, um, like, just be like in the way and crowding. So now I am going to give that a fold, make sure it's nice and lined up and just give a little bit of a clue to the interior angle . Awesome. And now I am just going Teoh, get that right into that corner speeds, press it into that card stock and then make sure you spread out the good a little bit, just like always. So now we're going to go into, like, the interior angle. And to do that we are going to take that piece of killing paper and kind of let it go just okay, but it roll right over right to the edge and then give it a little help with a little bit of pinching to give it a nice cream clean, crisp angle. Because I think that's one of the hardest parts. And that's kind of where we see a lot of people in like, um, you know, Facebook, Rick willing Facebook groups that I see who are just starting out that's one of their maim . Um, tricky parts that are really hard to dio is kind of getting those nice, clean, crisp angle. So it's not soft and and it's like, you know, like it's way better to have a nice, crisp, clean edge, then just kind of like like it just seems not. It's not as good it definitely looks a lot better. A lot more professional, a lot more polished If it just has that nice, clean edge and you get that nice clean angle is just giving it a little bit of a fold. Now it's gonna take some glue, go ahead. And so that's actually and they longer length. Then maybe I would recommend someone starting out to Dio. Um, I've done lots and lots and lots and lots of these. So, like, I can kind of if you can definitely work your way up to it. But be careful that you don't get to in ambitious too quickly as to like the amount of length you can do at one time, because you'll definitely be able to do more and more the more you practice. But I don't think that you're not good at it. Just cause, like you can't do a big, long length like that. Um, at first you'll get the hang of every promise. Now I'm just gonna once again smooth out that glue awesome. And now we're just gonna watch the fast forward and me finishing up a couple more of those corners. And I am doing these, um thes three basic shapes because I feel like a circle a square in the triangle Are, um, some really nice base level, um, base level sheeps for you, too kind of tackle any part of a letter form. But if you start to, um, start to outline the letter form that you've chosen and you get into, like, a tough spot, drop me a leather or drop me a message in the, um in the discussion board on this class and I will either kind of like be like, Oh, yeah, that's actually this moment in, like, you can kind of figure it out or if it's something that's like every a lot of people are having a lot of trouble with, I will make a special a special video just for tricky moments in certain letters because I know that there are a lot of, um, tricky moments and letters that maybe I didn't think of as being tricky cause I've been doing this so long. But if you find a tricky drop me a letter and I will a leather right drug me, drop me. And though in the discussion part of this class and I will definitely make you a video Teoh to show you how to do it. If it's something that a lot of people are having trouble with, I'd be happy if you do that. So now show you what you do when you have run out of quelling paper in the strip. So this piece has, um like, you can see that this is not enough to get this whole length there. And actually, I didn't This, like, little kind of tab right there. Didn't get any glue. So I'm just gonna go ahead and cut that off, because I'm adding for more paper anyway, So I'm just gonna cut that until to wear the glue stop, and I'm going to get out a new piece of quelling paper. And now I'm just gonna add a little bit of glue right to the end of that new piece of paper , and I am going to take our existing piece of paper and you just want those to line up just right, because if it's going at a weird angle, it will kind of like if it's not exactly flush like, lined up perfectly. A can kind of stand out in a way that's not the best eso. We just really want to give that a nice, clean straight. See how, like that's nice and flush like that. Like you can barely tell where one starts, Someone stops. That's what you want cause I'm friends. He'll he'll do like one will be like this and one will be like like that. And then when you do that, this one will go off into who knows where. Definitely not towards your piece of, um, you know, card stock. So now we have that. And then you just keep on going just like you would normally. And I am showing you all this in fast board. Um, but all three of the shapes you can see there it's so gonna be, in fact, like faster than, like, riel time, cause, like, who's got time to watch this in real time? But it's definitely a little bit slower in a little bit. Um, it's but it's, ah, slow enough to be like a little bit easier to follow. Sometimes I'm making these a little bit superfast just to kind of give you an idea of it without showing you like the whole thing. But if you are missing any moments that you wish you could like. Take a sober look at go and check out the, um, the videos at the end of this tutorial, cause that's going to kind of show you, like, a little bit of, like, bonus content of all these time lapse videos all in Not really time, but, um, in a slower speed, that's maybe a little easier toe to watch. So now we've got our gorgeous old triangle. Just about that We're just gonna take a little bit of glue right on the ends there, pull up that little extra town, Give that a little thought of glue, spread it out. So it's make something good and then close it up and do the same thing on the inside. Where is the start of the inside? There it is just like that. And that actually needs a little bit of glue right on that card. Stock to someone's gonna give that a little hit. Make sure everything's a nice and bonded handsome. So that is the triangle. And that's the final outlining of the basic shapes. And coming up next, we're going to talk about all the different gorgeous ways you can fill your freshly outlined little sheets 10. slotted quilling tool 101: So now that we have our gorgeous little shapes or letter forms all outlined, it's time to create what's gonna fill up the, um, Philip the letter, form or shape. And that is actually what the quill ing is. This little trip that I showed you in the videos before were just, like, gorgeous little ways to outline pretty easily. But this is going to actually be the rest of the class is going to be like all the different kind of gorgeous little quilting techniques. And I know and I'm gonna teach you. So the first thing we're gonna do is talk about the squealers best friend, which is a slotted killing tool you definitely Duke willing without any sort of tools at all. Really? Um, I mean cause it's really just ah ah, lot of the basis of these cooling Phils are really just coils, and you can make a coil just with your fingers if you wanted to. But the slide cooling tool is actually a lot better than that, because it's like designed Teoh make it a little bit faster, a little bit easier, a little bit less finicky for your little fingers to dio Um So it's hard to And I tried to get it on my hand ham, But it's, like a little bit hard to like, get it to focus in on just how very like like, No, it's not gonna focus. Okay, So like a lot of cooling tool has a teeny tiny little slot right at the end of that. So, um, even though you can't really see it, um, cause, like, it's hard to get things to focus on, things that small, um, it's right there and what you dio to use a slotted quelling tool. It's pretty intuitive and easy. I like this kind of middle blue. So I'm just gonna We're doing all these filling videos in blue, or at least the coils. I don't know what the other ones are gonna be, but, um, for the coil section, we're going to use Blue to be a nice contrast to the red that we outlined in. So we're gonna dio is we are just going to take a piece of cooling paper and see if I can't get a good angle there. We just want to nestle that piece of quelling paper right in there so you can see how it's in there. Wanted to go right until the end, just like that. And then all you dio iss um, you know, twirl handle just like that, and it's going to make a nice, gorgeous little coil in a much faster amount of time. Then you would normally need for like if you didn't have your calling tool. So quintals are very inexpensive. You can get them for almost nothing. Like, I think the most expensive one I've ever had was like probably like $5. But most of them have been around $2 they also have electric, sonic willing tools. I would save that investment until you are maybe sure you like willing just because that they are, like a little bit more expensive than just your basic willing tool. I've also heard that you could, like, kind of cut off the top of a sewing meal, especially like, um, bordering needle and push that into a cork. And that's a quelling tool. Um, I haven't done that. I thought about it a couple of times, but, um, cooling pools are actually pretty reasonably priced. I didn't need to go quite that 30 but if you wanted to. If you have some court in some sewing needles and the hair wire cutters go for it. Just cut off the top of that needle. But otherwise, um, just to make sure that you get that that sonic willing tool, it's gonna save you a lot of time. 11. Basic technique: Basic coil: So in this video, I want to show you how to make a big, sick oil and a multi colored coil and do a little bit with this kind of like board that I have. Um you don't need a board like this, especially if you have a missile outline. I'll show you a cute little trick for that. Um, but if you house like a little like stencil that has, like, all these shapes in them that works just as good. So you don't have to buy a special killing board like this to do anything in this video, it just like, especially if you have, like, a nice little like circular kind of drawing guide around. You can use that to if you want, like a nice, consistent uniformed, um, circle shapes. But you definitely don't need it. And I'm not sure what a cute little trick to at least make sure that, like the coils kid, like in your gorgeous little outline. Um, even without any sort of bored or anything like that. So the first thing we're gonna dio is take out piece of quelling paper and again, I'm doing these a couple of videos and blue Just a contrast with the red outlines that we did for the outline videos just hadn't give you and I saw the contrast. So I have my quote, Florrick, Quinn, tool loaded up. And you want to go kind of fast with this, Um, and you can kind of see you just gently hold it like that, Um, at the top, in the bottom. And if you don't hold it gently at the top in the bottom as you rotate that handle, it will. I kind of want to go up and down and, like, all around and all that kind of stuff, but to get it nice and clean and flesh just kind of gently hold it. You don't hold it too tightly because you can get like, a little teeny, tiny little paper cuts there, too. I call it cooling finger, and if you do too much, it really was grizzly. Okay, so I have that coil nice and done, and you want to do it kind of. You want to work a little bit quickly with this because the longer it stays in a nice, tight, tight, tight coil, the, um, the less likely it is Still, I kind of expanded the nice, even sort of way. It kind of gets a little stunted and, like, you know, but like, this will be nice and smooth. So as you can see, I took off like a piece of quelling paper Teoh off the flawed equipment. Well, and I just popped that right into my shape that I am working on filling, and then you just kind of take it out and got a clue and just add a little bit of glue to the end of that piece of paper right there, just like that, And also just like that and that because we let it expand inside this letter form or the shape is going to be the perfect size for that. So it's going to really be a nice It's a nice way to even if you don't have if you don't have a stencil thing that has all these little kind of circle shapes and then you can still get your coils to uniformly sized and actually the exact size you need just by letting them open up right in in the, um, the shape itself. But I'm gonna show you the next one. I am going to dio a multicolored, um coil because it's a cool way to kind of give your give your piece a little bit of like color transition. And it's always nice to have kind of like those little, um, the color shift moments. And it's a nice way to get maybe a little bit more paper on your coil so it could be a little bit bigger. Um, so I took this piece of paper and I fold it in half because I just want I want the center of it to be a little bit in this light blue, and then I'm gonna dio the outside of it is going to be in this kind of like, nice True Blue is what we call it in the world. This is a nice, true blue and we're gonna take a little bit of glue. You get that out of the way so you can see the nice color contrast. You can see exactly what's going on, and I am just gonna take a little thought glue and spread that around nice and even right to the end of that piece of paper, just like that, that nice little piece of coal on paper. And now we're just gonna line these up and it's gonna be a very similar way, like we did in the triangle toe ad. More paper, too, Um, an existing outlining piece of paper. But you really want to just take your time of that and make sure it's nice and flush and lined up because that's going to really make a difference in, um, how how much I like it just makes a difference in, like the quality of recoil. If it's nice and lined up and you don't want him toe overlap too much because wherever that overlap happens, there's, ah, two pieces of paper there. There's a little bit of glue there, and it's got a kind of give a little bit of a funky spot to your coil, which is like, almost invisible. But you might notice it in that way that, like you, notice things that you make the flaws in the stuff you make more than you notice and like what somebody else thinks. It's just kind of weird thing that happens in your brain. So now I am just going to take that we're starting on the light blue because that's what I want My night small little center to bay. And we are citing that into the slopping quoting tool. And we're just going to give that a couple of a couple of twist twist wrists. Actually, since I already have that going, I'm gonna take out the single color Embassy. Which one of these circles matches the best to the kind of size we're going for? Oh, that one that owns the winner. And so we're just gonna let that uncoil right in there and you can see how that's sticking a little bit right there. That's just cause of the transition of the papers. As sometimes some of the papers will be a little bit, um, sometimes some of the papers will be a little bit thicker than other pieces of paper, even if it's the same brand that can happen. Just like different colors are just slightly different kinds of paper, and they'll react to the oil a little bit differently, but just a little bit of teasing out, and that will take care of that. And now we're going to take that out of the though mold shaped former circle unifier. Think a little bit of English and just like that. And if you end up getting like a big gap like this like there's kind of like a nice, like a big gap right there that I like my quoting paper to be a little bit more uniform Just go backwards like that and then I'll smooth it out, and then you could just keep on filling up your shape with, um, with any kind of like a bunch of just coils. Looks great. You can play around with it. I would recommend taking a look at all of these videos and kind of playing around with it a little bit and maybe doing like a couple of coils and a couple of squares and a couple of hearts and like, see what you likes to the best and then kind of commit to that and use that to fill out your, um, your letter form. But definitely watch all the videos and take a look at all the different techniques I'm gonna show you. And then you'll be able to kind of make a nice, nice, gorgeous letter form with all the information that you need, um, available cause you already watched videos the 1st 1 time and then watch him again. He'll you know how to do it for fair. So now, um, as, like, just kind of a final step. Let's pretend like this is all filled up in exactly where I want all these pieces of paper to be. You just take your fine point glue bottle just like that, and we're just gonna find the center of that coil and give that glue bottle of squeeze and that's going to give you a nice little invisible bond because the hardest part of willing is to make sure glue is invisible. So if you go right into the tip top and then actually you could do a kind of cool thing where you can tell you tell that piece of cooling paper where you want the center today. So if you want all the centres to be kind of like out on that outer edge, you just give that coiled that information. So you're just gonna kind of put it right in the center like that, push it out to the outer edge where you want it to be, and you also want these quelling papers so you want to have Definitely a piece of dot of glue right at the center. Point. Right. But you also wanted to have a couple of other contact points with glue because that center will definitely stay glued down. But maybe the outside edges will pop out at, like, a point where it's like, you know, like, hang up on your wall and then, like, three once later, like, whoa, make you want that? So you like, give it a couple of, um, glue points to contact with. So I'm just giving this one. When there would there will blew those two together. So then they're holding each other together like that, and we're to do the same thing with us, and you can see this circle is all just kind of coils. She a couple of other techniques around coils, But I wanted to show you this one all done in nice and close up 12. Basic technique: Advanced coils: so now show you a couple of different ways. Teoh fell in your gorgeous little shapes and leather forms with a couple of variations on the basic oil that you learned in the last video. So we're going to dio I'm sick with blue because I really like these kind of nice, cool colors and I am going to take out my slotted killing tool. And I'm just going to make a basic coils Teoh kind of show you how to do a couple of these other moves that are kind of fun and a nice variation. They said they saw. You can really do a lot just with coils. You'll learn some more advanced techniques later in this class, but really the basic coil it's gonna take a lot of I mean, it's going to do a lot for you. So I'm just gonna put that and my little peg my little board and let it kind of bloom open just like that. So that's our basic coil, and I will close it up with a little bit of a clue just like that. And if you want to turn this like basic foil into a drop, all you have to dio I like to get the the actual like I'll show you on the paper. I think that will be a little easier. So I like to take this kind of like, center area were like a lot of the coil is I like to keep that nice and round when I do a drop. So I'm just gonna hold that all over, toe the bottom, and then I'm gonna pinch the top. And just like that, you have a pretty as congee little teardrop. And you can fit that right into your little shape. Let's see. I think that looks good right there. Let's do another one of those and teach you another shape. So I use just showed you how to dio that basics here drop. And now I'm gonna make one more. I should have gotten on my electric cooling tools, but I think that this is a little so help. You kind of see the repetitive things are definitely like cooling is repetitive. And I think showing you a couple of different times is a nice way. Teoh. Show you how, like teaching a little bit? Um, more than just if I just showed you once. So we have that all done. I will glue to the tip of that piece of paper just like that and move that coil down the kind of heart of that coil down and then down to the bottom and then pitch the top. And then there's that pretty little coil. Uh, nice. Let's hear. Drop. So we have to tear drops now. So what we're gonna dio with those two teardrops IHS gloom together, and then you have a heart. So I'm just gonna take a little bit of glue, just kind of bottom 2/3 of the edge of that piece of cooling paper. And just like that, pretty you have so much fun coming up with all kinds of different combinations. Like if you do this five or six times, it go all the way around, and you'd have a gorgeous little kind of, like, flower moment. But for right now, I'm just going to keep with that nice little heart. I think that looks good right there. So the next thing I'm gonna show you is, um kind of like a kind of like I shape. So this one's already coil. This was one that I just kind of have here. So you don't have to watch every single time I coil every single piece of paper, although you're gonna see a lot of that. Okay, so we're gonna close that up, and instead of just like nudging all that down to the bottom, we're gonna keep it in the center, and we're going to pinch it on both ends and that can give, like, a nice little, um, a nice little space filler kind of moment. Um, and you can use that to, like, Fillon. I like those really, really tiny just to kind of fill in, like a little like, accent kind of shaped thing. I think that looks really nice, but definitely play around with it. And don't be I actually especially if I'm learning. I like to use the kind of less desirable colors. If you got, like, a multicolored pack like that just because, like the first couple of ones you do, maybe won't go about tests, and at least you didn't waste when I was really pretty colors that you could use to make like something super gorgeous you can use kind of like the dollar colors toe practice on, um And now I am going Teoh show you the final kind of variation of, ah, coil that I'm gonna show you. And like I said, just cause, like, you know, there's lots of months and lots of ways in combinations that you can do so definitely washed through all these videos and kind of get a feel for what you want to do with your letter form for your class final, but, um, play around with it cause you can get so many gorgeous little variations like so many I spent years and years and years and years just using the few techniques I'm gonna show you in this class. I've used them in, like, innumerable combinations to make I the most gorgeous little things, so definitely play around with that. So I have my final kind of little moment I want to show you, and this is kind of like the most exciting one for May. I am was just like over the moon when I figured out how to do this. And that's why I wanted to show you two, because it's really exciting. It's so easy. So we're going to make a square out of the circle in the easiest way you could even imagine . So we got this and we are going to I like and I centered coil for my squares. So nice 100 coil and we're going Teoh, get a pinch just like with that eye shape. And then we are going Teoh, pinch it in the opposite direction and then you get the most perfect little square like Look at that. Is that gorgeous? Oh, man, it's so easy. It's like one of the easiest things. It's basically a ZZ as a coil A trip in its a square It's crazy. So now I'm just gonna find Yeah, I think maybe square goes over here since we only thes two are glued down. But none of the rest of the stuff that we've done so far is and actually I think that that that looks pretty So we're going Teoh glue that down and just like, um, with the circles, you can go in. Actually, that doesn't have quite as big of an opening as those circles did so on. Alternate way to glue down is to know where you want that glue to bay and just give a little bit of a dollop, and that's going to give it a nice kind of grounding CenterPoint, and you can still move it around. You still have a lot of fluidity and where your center is, which is good. Since the lift up here's a different way you can go use down. You didn't see I have this little gorgeous little heart. So I am just going Teoh, give a little bit of glue right to the back and make sure both of the centers of those coils are nice and literally glued. Not too much. You definitely don't want to exclude. Gluing is like for sure, the hardest part of quibbling. It is a story about you to making sure you don't see all those little little glue moments. Take out that I shaped for a second. I just want that I had a cat hair in there just like that, and we want that to go Great of the pinnacle. That's where I think that should go just like that. And now we'll dio a little one right at the top. I'm just gonna add some glue to the back of this. Just like that. I think that looks pretty good. And don't forget Teoh glue the center for sure, and then a couple of, like, just little dots of glue moment here and there, just to make sure each one of your coils has at least like one or two all old one or two additional little glued down moments to make sure that it's all gonna stay exactly the way you wanted to, because like, it can kind of move around in surprising ways if you don't have, like that center and then one or two or three little additional moments around the side. So I'm just going to go around and give those couple of extra points awesome. And then you just let that dry. And if you use too much glue, sometimes why can happen is that you can, um, do so much glue that it starts to warp the piece of card stock that you have, um, that you have on there. So if you feel like there's too much glue or if, like your particular style of gluing is making your nice, flat pieces of card stock curl a little bit, what you want to do is just let it dry underneath a nice heavy book. If you use just a tee time, little bit of glue, you probably won't have that problem. But, um, if your style of gluing ends up being kind of like warping the shape that you're working on , don't even sweat about it. Just make sure you let that glue dry underneath like a nice, heavy book. And it seems like delicate little cool things like this aren't gonna be ableto hand stand up to ah, really heavy book. But I promise you, they can just think of, like the way that, um, cardboard like, you know, like just like that swirly part in the middle of the two cheats A card stock like makes a really sturdy card. Cardboard, you're basically doing something like that. Times 10 when you make a piece of quelling paper are a quilt form because all that nice, strong standing up quelling is gonna definitely hold up against, like, incredibly dumb. Pretty sure I could stand on this and it wouldn't crush it at all. So, um, and you end up getting a little bit of warping happening. Just make sure you let things dry underneath a heavy book. But if you don't Don't even worry about it. I just want to show you a couple of these. A couple of stills of these gorgeous little kind of shapes, some ideas of some of things you could do with your coils. Um, yeah, Just kind of have fun with that. 13. Advanced technique: combing: So now we are going Teoh, go through a couple of more advanced techniques. So these again are little different ways. You can fill your leather forms that you have all nice and outlined. Think of letter form is like a gorgeous little container to like, keep all your things nice and Q and clean and all together and ready to go. So what we're gonna do is one of my favorite cooling moves, and it's called combing. But it's not like combing like that. It's because you literally use a comb and you can also use This is a official quill ing comb. But like you really don't need this. I have this one. But this was my go to This is my favorite comb. To do this kind of technique with, um is a nice good size, which is nice, because the bigger it is, the more, um, you know, room you'll have to work with as far as like, how big you want your shape to get. And it's also nice and wide tooth, and I like a wide toothed just because, um, honestly, it takes a little bit less time to Dio, which is always in benefit with killing, because if you haven't noticed, it's a little bit of a grind. Um, so I love this one. This one's my favorite Go to comb for for coming. So the first thing we're gonna dio is we are going Teoh, get out a piece of paper and for these advanced techniques were going to use green and get our glue ball together. Glue bottle. It's actually been a couple of days since I've used that one. So it's stuck a little bit. Let me make sure that it's gonna work. OK, good. So I got some flow. Every once in a while, you'll just won a really take the pin and, like, scrape the inside of that little tip. And that's gonna help clear out any clogs they might form. Even if you do use a pin. So what did now? Is that my piece of green calling paper? And I am going Teoh, just make a little blue Great at the end, just like that. I'm just gonna add a little bit, uh, glue? No, we have that nice little loop right there. And don't worry. If it feels like you're loop is going to be too big for this 1st 1 It's definitely better than to be too big than too. Be too small. So now I am going to find the little center time right there. And I actually have it, like, really faintly scraped into this plastic because this is my favorite, um, comb FERC willing, and I'm just gonna slip that rate in. And you just wanted to be the first loop to go on. Like wherever the center point is on, um, on your comb. And now we're gonna take the paper and good to go up and loop around the 2nd 1 and then we're gonna put a little daughter glue right on that first, that first loop. And you have to be careful about the glue in all of these advanced techniques because it could get a little bit look a little bit sloppy right there in the end, because you're gonna hit that exact spot with each layer that you do. So it can like, kind of, like build up if you use too much glue and the you can, like, almost see it sometimes. Be careful. Okay, so now I'm just gonna loop that around back up back around and hit it with another daughter . Clue. Now I'm gonna show you the rest of this in fast for and just like all of them the like, full length, fast forward video of this is going to be available down in the, um you know, stand at the bottom of this skill share class and really, you just go back and forth and back and forth until you get the whole strip done. And did you have to be careful with that center point? You want to make sure that, um, you're not putting to too much glue but like, not enough glue and it won't stick. So you get the hang of it for sure. And now you can take that little piece and take it right off the comb if you want Teoh and we'll obviously take it off the comb. Um, but you can cite that right off the comb, and you can, like, fold it up like that. Or we're actually gonna set that aside, um, and do something fun with it later to kind of combines two techniques together. So for two color, um, PC is just kind of, you know, make sure that for this one. I'm using 1/2 apiece in a whole piece. And, um, just make sure that if you're going to use more than one of the usable shapes, you kind of like remember, like, you know, okay, half of the light green and half our whole one of the Kelly green, And that's going to really help you be consistent in your shape. So if you're, like, doing like a name, they'll all kind of look the same because they will be safe and then use keep on, keep on doing it the same way we did with a single color. But it's, um you goes on for a little bit longer, and as you can see here, I want three of those Kelly green loops and I don't have a quite enough. So I'm just gonna take a little bit of extra and then put it right on the end like that. And now I have funny right to that center, More point. So now I have my gorgeous little combed piece. All done. So now I'm just gonna slide that right off my comb, just like that. And these are so versatile in pretty you can leave it just like that. I mean, it's gorgeous, just like that, or you could, like, fold it up and sometimes I will, like, kind of glue these little pieces together. But this time I'm gonna put this little singled color comb shaped aside for right now because I've got some special plans for it in a little while. But we have the triangle that we're working on in the last videos. So I am just going Teoh show you how to glue these down. So this one I like the way it is. So it's pretty easy and straightforward. What you want to dio is just kind of decide which side you think looks better. So I'm gonna take a look at that side and look at this side, and I think that this side is like, a little bit less good, So that's going to be the side that's going to be down. And I'm just going to take a little bit of glue all right there, just like that. And that will be enough to keep that whole shape nice and glued down, and I'm gonna press it up against the edge of that outlining Just like that and just to give it a couple of more little moments to stay stuck, I'm going to just kind of go in and give it a little dot ycl erase. There, we'll go in and give it a little dot ugly right there. Maybe a little bit more right there. And then when I have this whole shape filled up and there's going to be something up here, then you would just want to give, like maybe each of those little those little loops a little. Just a little dot of glue will do just fine just to make sure everything stays exactly the way we wanted to. But for right now, because this one is still filling up. We're gonna wait on that for a little while. But that's how you would go about doing it. And I shouldn't have looked at that up because of me. The glue come up, so just be patient with that glue 14. Advanced technique: pegboard : So now I'm gonna do a quick little demo on this, um, quelling pegboard. And this pegboard is, like, very Mitch kind of quelling tool. So if you don't have ah, cooling board like this, you can for sure use, um, like, I would look online for a, um, like a grid pattern or even a piece of, um, of graphing paper, that kind of thing. You know, the ones, like a lot of the little boxes. So you take that and you put it on a piece of corkboard, and then you'll be able to do exactly what we're gonna do here, but without, um, Pegboard. But, um, visits once we're gonna use this pegboard, which is a specifically like a very pretty I'll say it's a pretty niche, little, um, little tool for sir. And he definitely don't need it, especially if you're just starting out. But you can do some pretty fun things with that. So, um, just remember, um, you know, take a look online and just trying to find, like, a grid kind of shape or, um, you know something that's kind of grade, like in the shape that you want it to be and you could just use pins instead of this pegboard if you want to. But you have a high court, so I am going to start up with piece of green, just like all the advanced techniques are gonna have. And I am going to start out by putting a T tiny little dab a glue at the end there just like that and making a little loop to start and that little loop a super handy. And it's a way that, um, you could start lots of different techniques and really use these techniques that I'm showing you as a jumping off point. Play around with them, see if you like. If you don't like, think about ways that you could do it differently for sure. And that's kind of fun of a new hobby is like figuring out how like you want to do it. Okay, so now we have our little, um, our little way have our little pegs, and I'm gonna start this one. Um, no. At that whole, Like, um, like you might assume I'm gonna started a little bit up, because as we progress down that focal point or the fulcrum where all of these different loops are gonna go back towards, just like with the, um, combing. Um, it's gonna make it, like, a little bit thicker each time it passes. You know, like that. Like combing it started out really, like just one signal loop, and then we cut on going, and it can get pretty thick after a while. So that's what I'm just going to give it a little bit of room to start, so I'm just gonna loop that. There we go. Sorry. I had to get my hand kin lined up. So we're gonna was gonna lose that little loop rate along the first pay, and then we're gonna put the second peg and loop it around just like that and give it a little Hit the glue right at that fulcrum point, and you don't necessarily have to follow. Um, have to follow the grid. Exactly. I like to and in the demonstration, I'm gonna, um, show with the time lapse. It's nice. Um, but, um, you can also do, like the highest point, and then the next highest point and then the next highest point. And that looks good too. So definitely play around with that. And Let's just do one wire for you. Hit fast for it, just like that. And then we're gonna give it another little hated clue just like that. So now we're gonna finish watching this in the time lapse. And again, it's just sit back and forth kind of thing. Um, yeah, it's pretty straightforward, and it's awfully fun. So I'm definitely if you get a chance to get one of these peg boards for sure pick one up. It's pretty fun and versatile little thing. Um, but again, you don't necessarily have to. You can dio the same kind of thing with just some graph paper. If that's all you have, that would be absolutely fine. Yeah, just like that. We're gonna put the glue, and then I just tour that paper right there just like that, which is a good way to do it. So I secured it with a little bit of glue and then I Torit. Today I have this gorgeous little shape out, this little peacock kind of guy, and I just think these air so pretty So another thing you could do with your pig board is to do kind of like a like a swoosh kind of thing. And I was a really fun in there. Um, there was good to like, um, you know, fill up, like in my straight long area. Like just with this. It could be just gorgeous. And they never know how how uh, how deceptively easy it is. It's tedious, but it's a simple ifly. Simple. So we're gonna start with for this next shape, we're going to start with a piece of coiling paper, just like before. We're gonna put a little loop in there to start off. And for this technique, you're going to want Teoh. Keep an eye on the thickness that you do, because nothing would be worth and toe work quite that hard. Teoh have a piece that's not gonna fit, you know what I mean? That's a bummer. And that's definitely happened to be quite a few times where I'll work and make something. And I think it's great. And I go to put it in the letter foreign, and it doesn't fit, especially with this technique. Sorry, little loop. And I'm just going to start right there on the corner of the pegboard loop that loop. So I started on this first row. So for my 2nd 1 because these air offset a little bit. So there's, like, one row and then this second robe starts like, almost like polka dots style. So that's a little bit offset. So what we want to dio is we want to start it on one of those offset one. So So it's not quite so lined up, but I'll have a little bit of more. They agg no, like a little bit more emotion to it, and that's what is nice. So I am going to gets give it a dot of glue where we started and lip that back or around and then just president and hold it for distant second or two just to kind of give that glue a little bit more of a chance to set up. I know I talk a lot about Blue Bonds and I think a lot about global and so that you don't have Teoh. Okay, so I'm gonna go back and just like before, we're gonna give a hit a glue right where that second Pegasus and leave interrupt and hold it for a little bit. So never keep on going back and forth just like that and adding a peg and I'm Grillo and your pack and adding some glue just like that. And that's one of those points ends up not the blue bond ins of not setting up just right. Don't worry about it. Just keep on going. And, um, when you take it off the peg, just give it a, um just give it a hit of glue, then That's looking good. Too little gorgeous pegboard shapes all, um, readyto go into our letter form. So I think for this one, let's see and play around with it a little bit, um, for sure. Like makes trying to see what's gonna work. So I actually think that that's gonna look really good right there in that corner like that . So I am just going to take a again. I'm gonna look at the front in the back on the side. Which one looks better cause sometimes will be like more glue, but build up on one side versus the other. Maybe the paper got didn't a little bit. And someone sides better than other, like both sides, are exactly the same. Silly, just kind of take a peek and say so I'm gonna give it a nice little hit of glue Ray at the fulcrum point just like that. And then I'm gonna pop it in right where I know it's gonna fit because I planned it out. And then that's one There isn't anything going on over here, so I think this one's gonna fit just great right there. And, um, there's a couple of different ways you could glue down this, like, specific, like shape. But, um, I because I planned it out so well, and if it's so gorgeously in and through hitting the sides of that letter form, I was going to go ahead and just get my glue bottle right in there, and I'm just going to give it a little bit of glue on that side and a little bit of glue on the other side, and that piece isn't going to go anywhere, just like that 15. Advanced technique: straight pin freestyle: So the next little advanced technique that we're gonna learn is gonna be a pretty versatile one, quite frankly so for this one, I am just going to use this little, um uh, you know, foam killing board that I have. But honestly, you can just use a piece of, um, a piece of, like, text way paper with whatever shape you want printed on it and a piece of cork board. And that's all you need. You just need something that pins can go through in a basic shape that you want. Teoh do this specific technique with and it works. They were so good in so many different ways. So just, um, you know, think about it like, you know, try to design a a little little bit, but don't like stress too much about it sometimes. Like for like, really complicated shapes like a star, you might need to do a couple of different sections to get exactly the the outcome that you want. But, um, really, you can do any shape just print out that shape on a piece of text, wait paper and put it on a, um, on a piece of cork board. If you don't have one of these quelling forms or even if you do have one of these killing forms and you just want to do a shape that's not necessarily like on this board, which is like most shapes. But for simplicity's sake, we're just going to use this board. And so we have our board and we have some just just street pens. That's all they are, just playing old straight pins with the little beads on the top. I like something on a little bit on the top, just some. I just think it's a little bit easier to work with that way. So we are. Oh, that's a little too thick. That's the That's a different color than we've been using. Where was out of you bands? Color? Okay, so now he's of green paper, and I'm gonna add just a tip. Just a little bit of glue, just like all these advanced techniques, except for the last one, which is the machine next, The hunting combing doesn't start with a loop, but all the rest of the advanced techniques start with a loop. So we're just gonna make that little loop and you really don't have to worry about how small this loop is because just a pins gonna fit through it. So just always a pin through it. So let's get a couple of these pins out just to kind of, um you know, so we don't have play with that little circle thing too, too much. And so I am going to do this little drop shape. I think that looks nice. I think it's going to make a good shape for, um this letter form I'm working on. So I was going to give that fine with kind of where the center is and press that into the foam, and then I'm gonna find where that little fulcrum top part is. Give a little bit of room for the paper around it and then loop it around just like that. And honestly, I think a piece of paper and, um, and corkboard is maybe a little bit easier than doing it this way. Just because that little whip makes it a little harder toe to work around because it's ah, it's somethin instead of flush. And actually, I usually do it with, um with a piece of paper printed out, and if you end up wanting to see that. Just leave a note in the comments that I could make a video that has, like, a more advanced version of this technique. I'm just going along the edge. You don't want to get the pins too close together, but you don't want to get them too far apart. You'll figure out what's what works good for you, and we're just gonna finish that up in fast forward. So just like that, we're going to keep on going from one side to the other side, giving a little glue at that fulcrum point yet again. You want that fulcrum point to be a little bit higher up, then you think you might need Don't make it flush with that line because it's going to keep on getting thicker every time you wrap another piece of paper around just like that. I think that looks good. So we're gonna take off those and now what I'm gonna do is I am just wrapping the outside of that piece of paper with the rest of that strip about the rest of it. But, you know, we went around two or three times and then that just kind of makes a gorgeous little container for, um, for the, um, funnel shape that we just made. So now we have a gorgeous little custom shape, all the tidy and gorgeous, And we have remember the piece of combing that we had from before the single color. So what I'm gonna do with this is I am going to take that, make sure it's gonna work, make sure everything fits just the way I wanted to. This is what it looked so good. So now I'm gonna dio I'm just gonna take, like, glue bottle and give it a little bit of glue all around the edge. And now we're just gonna nestle that in two there and close it all around like a gorgeous look willing hug and just want to hold that for a little bit and especially this end piece right here. It is going to give that because it's it's wanting to be a little wild and free, and we want it to be nice and snuggly just like that, and just kind of hold that for a little while. But that's gonna be a really gorgeous little um ah, little piece. And you can play around with this like you doesn't have to be like to advance pieces like this. It could be like a coil in there that that combing is wrapping around the coming in super versatile. It's like one of my favorite quelling shape. So that's why I kind of wanted to finish that up, because I can't think she was. That's so pretty. So now we are going Teoh, add that whole piece rate in there like that. I think that looks good. Be over here. Let's say, yeah, I like it better over here. It's not gonna fill the whole space, but you don't need, like, every single inch of your letter for him to have these, like, kind of quilt figure kind of forms in it. It can be really tempting toe one of almost overcrowd your letter for him. But I think when in doubt go without you know what I mean? Like just kind of let it be a little bit more simple. It's gonna be just is pretty. It's gonna be less work for you, and you'll have a little bit of kind of these gorgeous little shapes that you create. We'll have a little bit of breathing room, and that's okay, just like that. So now we have our fun little shape, our our shape that has a freak, willing technique. I know on it. 16. Advanced technique: honey combing: So this one we are going, Teoh, use a darker green. And the reason why I'm doing that is because this little gorgeous little's quilt shape is really starting to fill up with that green. And I want to give you something a little bit Climb, craft, staying because you be a little kind of see a little bit easier. So now what I do is I have my slaughtered quelling tools and I have a piece of dark green quelling paper. And the first thing I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna start off maybe an inch from the end of that strip and I'm gonna slide in Mike Willing Tool. And I'm gonna give that a twist, and that's going to kind of be our starting off little little piece. And then I'm just going to go a couple of inches down and twisted up and then a couple of inches down and twists up just like that and I'll show you the rest in fast Ford because it is a kind of tedious process, as I'm sure you could have predicted by now that you've seen almost all of the different killing techniques, they are a little bit tedious, but that's always okay because you get such gorgeous things because of it. I mean, you think about how tedious scrolling through Instagram is, and you don't get anything out of that except for a headache if you do it too long. So now I have all of these little sections of hunting combing all oh, together just like that. Um And you don't want to do you like I like to prep? If my MME it's honey combing, I am going to prep a bunch all at once, just so I don't have to, like, keep doing it because, like, I just don't really like it. So I know I want that money coming to go here and you want to do this in, like, little sections as you go so that it doesn't, you know, get to Messi. But what I'm just going to do is I'm just going to kind of give a not only total coverage for sure Still wanted to be pretty. Aziz Little glue is possible, but I'm just going to do a whole section because I want this honey combing to go in there, and it doesn't really fit together. Super nicely. That's kind of why I think of it more like coloring with piece of paper on its side versus like drawing like the rest of, um, Quil ing is because it really does. There still oppa space super well Oh, isn't that just perfect? It is satisfying to get it all kind of really fill in a space like that. So, like in the last videos, I was like, Yeah, we give your little shape, some room to breathe But on this one, it's there's there's no room to breathe. And now I am going to dio. This one has a little bit of bigger swirls. You could definitely play around with the size. Some people are very diligent about keeping them all very consistent. And I think for like, you know, coloring purposes. I think that let looked really makes. But you definitely can use, like you don't like stress out about it because it's him look really good either way. Oh, shoot. There's like just the teeniest bit of around so e a little bit more, and I think I can make it work. I should have finished that whole thing instead of stopping, and I'm just gonna fish that up with a couple more? No, honey Combs. And it's called honey coming because all of those little pieces that we make they really just fit together, just like you'd imagine, Like a honey come, you know, like, uh, like, have the all all of those pieces kind of fit together just perfectly there, just like that there is going to go in and fight a little bit of space for that to live. Tease this one that lay in the other one this way and their U. S. So that piece isn't really sticking to anything. So I don't think that spot got any glue and just kind of go around with your finger just gently. Kind of giving. You can feel it after it's been drying for a little while. Um, especially where you might need a little bit more glue. And like before I was saying that this first piece for my audience technique was going to need a little bit more and great, and it was going in and gluing all these little any coming pieces right to the edge of that comb piece. Very have it 17. Class project: So those are all of the techniques that I know how to dio and the gorgeous little outlining , which is the real secret of this class.
