I made this quite a while ago and forgot to post it. The heart-shaped frame was made first – it helps to corral all the flowers in there. So girly!

ARE THERE INSTURCTIONS ON HOW YOU DID THIS

Hi Amy, I designed an instructional PDF with step by step photos showing how I form my open petal flowers. After making the flowers, I folded a quilling strip in half (depends on how large you want the heart outline) and curled the ends. Next I simply placed each flower inside, adjusting the fit as I went. Here’s a link to my Etsy store, which sells my pattern (it’s also linked from the right hand column).

This quilled paper heart is absolutely gorgeous! Wonderful design, and great execution! I found this by tracking down a pin on Pinterest that haven’t this as the correct source; now I’ll pin it properly.
If you’re on Pinterest, I invite you to try a free backup from my website, http://www.pin4ever.com. Many people have lost pins and whole boards to hackers and computer glitches. A Pin4Ever backup protects your pins by downloading a copy of your boards, pins and likes to your computer. You also get other great features like being able to search your pins, and being able to see and analyze your Top 100 pins in a special category. I hope you’ll check it out and try a free back up!

Cecelia, your work is beautiful. I just saw this and I am tempted to buy the pdf tutorial (I am on a tight budget) but first I wanted to ask you if that is suitable for a beginner and also how detailed are the step by step instructions? Do you have a sample page or something similar with a couple of steps, do you include detailed pics or just descriptions? Thank you!

Hi Andrea, thanks so much! I’m happy to hear I’ve inspired you to consider quilling as a hobby.
Many beginners have tried this pattern and although it helps to have been quilling already, it’s not a necessity. My 9-yr old nephew was quite capable with his hands, but his mom still prefers to quill flowers the usual way, so it depends on how you enjoy it I guess.
Here is an impressive project made by a first time quiller: http://craftingcreatures.wordpress.com/2013/04/06/quilling-letters-name-by-karen-harr/
My instructions are extremely detailed in words and show close up photos of each stage, and even include directional arrows in some photos. You can read what others have said on my Etsy feedback page here: http://www.etsy.com/people/CraftingCreatures/feedback?ref=owner_feedback_leftnav
Also, if you are on a limited budget and not sure if quilling is right for you, there are many wonderful books in the library as well. Perhaps you can try some of their examples to see if this is something you’d like to get into. I’ve used toothpicks and construction paper with friends and we all had a blast. I hope you do enjoy the world of quilling!
