"Paper quilling a bird is fun and easy! This card is perfect for Valentine’s Day or a sweet note for a loved one. This bird is designed to be cut from an SVG file out of Bazzil card stock, on your electronic cutting machine. When you CIY (cut-it-yourself), there is no rat’s nest of supplies left over. The strips are thicker and wider than is typically used by most quillers, so it’s easier to handle. In fact, I used a crochet hook rather than my usual quilling needle to make my coils! Watch the assembly tutorial video on YouTube to see just how easy it is to put together. I also show many other paper crafting tips along the way."
