Tight
Coils 


Peg:
Roll a strip of paper on the quilling tool and give the end before
taking it off 



Bell

glue the end before taking it off. Then push up into a bell shape
and glue the inside to help it keep it’s shape 






Closed
Loose Coils 


Closed
loosed coil: Roll the paper on the quilling tool then drop
it onto the work board and allow it to uncurl for a while. Put a small
amount of glue onto the end and hold gently for a few seconds until
dry. It’s a good idea to make several like this before glueing.




Teardrop:
Start with a closed coil coil as above. After glueing, pinch one end
to form a point and make the teardrop shape. 



Eye:
Start with a closed coil. After glueing hold between finger and thumb
of each hand and pinch gently to form the eye shape. 



Diamond:
Start with a closed coil and pinch to form an eye shape (as above)
but when pinching the ends, push the shape together so as to form
a diamond. 



Square:
Start with a closed coil. Lightly pinch just the outer ring or two
of the coil
at opposite ends, then lightly pinch the other two sides to form a
square.




Triangle:
Start with a closed coil. Then make in the same way as the square
(above) but pinch only three sides each a third of the way round the
coil. 




Leaf:
Start with a closed coil, pinch the ends to make an eye shape and
when holding between finger and thumb gently twist to form an ‘S’
shape or leaf. 



Petal:
Start with a closed coil. Pinch the top to form a teardrop and as
you pinch, twist slightly to make a curved petal. 



Oval:
Start with a closed coil and squeeze the sides gently without pinching
to flatten slightly into an oval. 



Half
Moon: Start with a closed coil and push one side in around
a pencil or quilling tool handle. Lightly pinch each end of the resulting
curve. 



Heart:
Start with a closed coil. Pinch at one end to form a point. Push the
opposite end around a pencil to make the top of the heart 



Holly:
Start with a closed coil Pinch the coil around the centre with a pair
of tweezers, then pinch and push each end towards the tweezers to
make the six points. 



Eccentric
Coil: Start with a closed coil, pull the centre to one side
and glue in place. This can be done using tweezers or placed on a
board and held with pins.
