Paper Quilling With A Comb


The materials required in this paper quilling tutorial are strips of quilling paper, a comb and some glue. The comb can be any of these items: a quilling comb, afro comb, an onion holder or a normal comb. I am using a baby comb in this tutorial!

Start somewhere in the middle of the comb. Insert a quilling paper around a prong like this.



Wrap the strip of quilling paper around a prong on the left of the middle prong.



Bend the quilling paper under the comb and wrap the next prong on the right of the middle prong.

Bend the paper under and back to the left side of the comb and wrap the prong next to the previous loop on the left.

Continue wrapping the prongs until the whole strip of paper is twirled around the comb.

When finished looping, apply a little glue to the end of the paper strip and stick it to the coil. Trim off the excess paper if necessary.

Remove the looped paper from the comb but hold the paper firmly so that the loops do not unwind or become loose. Use a pair of craft pliers to hold the paper if it is too delicate to handle with your fingers.



Gently bend the looped paper so that the leftmost loop touches the rightmost loop. All the small loops will be enclosed on the inside of the coil.

Get hold of another strip of quilling paper and wrap it around the coil following its shape. Finish wrapping the coil by applying a little glue to the end of the paper strip and trim off the excess paper.



This is how the quilled coil should look like. It has an oval shape with little loops inside the coil.



After making the loops on the comb, the paper can also be bent the other way to make a coil with a different design on the inside.

Wrap a strip of quilling paper around the coil following its shape. Apply some glue to the end of the paper strip and trim off excess paper.
