Materials List

  • Red Quilling Paper
  • Ivory Quilling Paper
  • Green Quilling Paper
  • Quilling Tool
  • White Craft Glue
  • Straight Pins
  • Cork Board
  • Waxed Paper
  • Tweezers

Instructions:

  1. Print strawberry template and pin under waxed paper to cork work board.

  2. To start with, make a few leaves for your berries. I like to make mine in various sizes for a little visual interest. For this size berry, use two 3-1/2" strips of bright green quilling paper, and one 2-1/2" strip. Simply make loose coils and pinch each into teardrops or marquise.

  3. The stem is formed from the same shade of green. Starting with a 3" strip, roll a tight coil about halfway down the length of the strip. Remove your quilling tool, and let the coil go slightly. Add a small dot of glue between the coil and the rest of the strip, and pinch lightly to dry. To finish the 3-D effect for the stem, glue a small piece of green paper from the coil to end of the strip.

  4. The next step to quilling these strawberries is to roll a whole bunch of seeds. Using 1" strips of ivory paper, roll tight coils. Once the ivory coils are dry, wrap each with 1-1/2" strips of red paper. Pinch each into a teardrop shape. Each berry needs about 25 seeds.

  5. Place the seeds on the template under the leaves and stem in a varying pattern.

  6. Once all the seeds are on the berry, make between 14-16 pinched coils from 1" red paper, exactly like the ivory seeds. With a little glue, attach the red teardrops around the edges of the seeds on the berries.

I have done very little paper quilling projects as I usually find them so time consuming. However, this project makes me want to make dozens of strawberries. These have got to be the cutest paper strawberries I have ever seen. I also appreciate that the instructions and photographs are so clear that I feel Like I can make these in no time at all. LOL. Could this be used to make other types of berries?

You could probably use similar coiling to make raspberries! Blackberries, too. Let us know if you have success experimenting :) - Krista, Editor, AllFreePaperCrafts
