How to Paper Quill a Rangoli Pattern for kids

Creating different quilling shapes

Step -1: Select a color for the center of the quilled rangoli pattern and take a long quilling strip. Use the slotted quilling tool to coil the whole strip tightly.

Step -2:Take the coil out of the tool and place it on a flat surface and allow it to loosen up freely.

Step – 3: Select more strips for the next layer of the rangoli. I’m using blue colored strips.

Step – 4: Quill some loose coils with the blue strips.

Step – 5:  Take a loose coil and press the coil on any one point to form a teardrop shape. Glue the open end to secure the shape.

Step – 6: Similarly prepare the rest of the loose coils. Use different colored quilling strips to create more teardrop shapes.

Step – 7: Use more strips to create different shapes. You can go for basic lens shape, tight coils, twirl shapes.

Step – 8: Prepare a piece of paper (white or cream will be great!). Glue the first loose coil on the center of the paper.

Step – 9: Grab teardrop (or lens) shapes for the next layer and glue them around the center shape.

Step – 10: For the third layer glue the selected shapes in between the shapes of the previous layer.
