This Quilled Balloon Paper Birthday Card is a great example of many of the parts of quilling! It showed several of the tools and a couple of the shapes too. I think I could figure out how to do a star for a balloon shape as well. I was given a quilling kit for my last birthday and I can't wait to get started! Thanks for making this video for us visual learners!

Oh boy I love this quilling. A new hobby for me. I have to find these tools and paper. I love the idea to make your own homemade cards and this add that special touch and you can make your own designs with the quilling pieces. I have got to do this craft with my grandkids. Thank you so much for the video on how to do quilling. Looks so easy.

This project is easy and fun to make with the kids. Paper quilling tools are not easy to find in my area. So I use other things as replacement. I use a circle ruler instead of a quilling board, and a tooth pick instead of a quilling tool. They both work just fine.

This video was so much fun to watch! I've never seen paper quilling in action before, so I learned a lot.
