Thin strips of paper can turn into almost any shape if you use the quilling technique. In this masterclass you will make a flying kite from this material.
Quilling Kite Tutorial
Total Time: 20 minutes
Step 1: Prepare the material and tools for quilling
For the kite you need to take colored strips and special tools for quilling.
Step 2: Insert the colored strip into the quilling shape board
I suggest you make your kite multicolored. Its main part consists of four elements. To create the first element, glue 2 orange strips together and twist them by placing them in a quilling shape board with a diameter of 20 mm.
Step 3: Use glue for the twisted circle
Then carefully remove the strip from the quilling shape board and fix the tip of the strip with glue. You will get a round blank.
Step 4: Repeat the previous step three times
Make 3 more such round blanks from strips of other colors.
Step 5: Make a rectangular triangle from the circle
Now from each circle form a rectangular triangle. You will get ready blanks for the main part of the kite.
Step 6: Make a rhombus from strips
Glue the four triangles together so that you get a rhombus.
Step 7: Complete the kite head
Glue a strip of black color around the rhombus, and make a “tail” for the kite from a piece of white strip.
Step 8: Use a quilling shape board
Make small blanks for decorating the tail of the kite. To do this, cut one strip in half and twist it into a quilling shape board 10 mm.
Step 9: Repeat the previous step with the second part of the strip
From the second half form the same circle.
Step 10: Make triangles from the circle.
Now with your fingers give the resulting circles the shape of triangles.
Step 11: Glue the triangles to the tail of the kite
Fix the triangular elements on the kite with glue.
Step 12: Make triangles from paper of other colors
From strips of other colors, form the same blanks and add them to your craft. You will get such a kite in the technique of quilling.
