New Baby

You'll need

All-occasion Quilling Set with Papercraft Essentials issue 211
pink & white cardstock
extra quilling paper
3D foam pads
baker’s twine
Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens
New Baby die set
manual die-cutting machine

Step by step

  1. Using the quilling tool make a solid circle with a pink strand, adhere in place but do not remove from the tool, glue a second piece of pink cardstock and keep spinning the circle, repeat with a third strand. It may become difficult to add the third piece on the quilling tool so some hand rolling may be required.
  2. Keep going, add three layers of white cardstock and affix the end, creating the body.
  3. Repeat with three strands of white for the head and four ½” strands in pink for the arms/legs. The ears also require a half strand each but slightly release the circle, pinch into teardrop shapes and bend one over to look like the ear is lopped.
  4. Adhere all the parts of the rabbit together as shown.
  5. Cut out a 9½x7½cm rectangle from the pink cardstock shape at the top. Repeat with the white cardstock slightly smaller.
  6. Punch a hole through the top of the tag.
  7. Affix the rabbit in place, add some sparkle from the Spectrum Noir pen and die-cut the ‘new baby’ sentiment out of pink cardstock, affix in place.
  8. Add the white label to the pink using 3D foam pads.
  9. Secure in place around the edge of the white label pink baker’s twine and cut a piece to thread through the punched hole.
