So I rolled half lengths of the printed paper types so they weren't too bulky and then set about squishing and gluing together. Easy. And then I decided on a heart shape and got a big cookie cutter for reference. Slightly fiddly. You can now see gaps (well I can). But hey, it's pretty and there are so many more paper strips left that there is more rolling to be done! I know it's called Quilling, but really, when you search for Quilling on the interweb thingy, the standards are amazing... I'm OK with this for now!
And to satisfy curiosity after a strange angle on my workdesk last week, here are the mushrooms. They are papier mache hearts and will be getting a treatment very soon.
I am really quite enjoying the countdown to that St Valentine's day!
