This is the hair band I made for my friend
It seems that I’m on a quilling spree!
Quilling is an art that involves rolling long strips of paper to form different shapes and patterns.
I loved quilling and used to make lots of coils and make flowers and butterflies but I did not finish making anything as it took a lot of time to roll all the long strips so my mother bought me an automated quilling machine that quills all our coils in a jiffy! It is called the super quiller. She bought it from a website named Quill On. And then, as soon as I got my hands on the super quiller, I could not keep it down! I made a pink hair band on the first day and wore it when I went to play. All my friends admired it and I thought of making another one. This time, I made it entirely with shades of green. My friends loved it and the next day 3 of my friends came at my home with their quilling strips and hair bands! We all sat and made those together. One of my friends made a rainbow themed hair band and another made a food themed one! One of them asked me to make it and I’m still working on that. One auntie asked me make one for her almost two year old girl and one friend is still asking me to make a pair of quilling earrings for her. I am so happy and want to go on for forever!

Friends, on my mother’s birthday I gifted her a pendant set.
One had a geometrical design & the other was leaf shaped with my mother’s name’s starting letter ‘S’ on it.
I will show you how to make it, so that you can also make it for your mother.
First apply talc powder on your hands & then take white M-seal and start making the base shape that you want. Then to put it in the chain you need a hole, so with clay or M-seal make a round loop & attach it to the pendant.
If you want to engrave lines or designs in your pendant you must do this before it dries.
Tick, tock, tick, tock. Let it dry for a day or two. After it dries, take up your brush young artist & paint it with your favorite colors.
There we are. The pendant for your mother is ready!
I am going to tell you how to make a M-seal leaf shaped plate.
Take a bowl & turn it upside down, put a leaf on top of it.
- Apply M-seal on it.
- For the base you can use a jar’s cap.
- Then set another leaf on top.
- After it is dry take both of the leaves off.
- Decorate it.
- Make sure your leaf is large enough to make your plate. I made this in autumn with dry leaves.
I am going to tell you how to make a quilling photo frame.
- Take a piece of cardboard.
- Cut a sheet of paper of the same size as the cardboard.
- Apply glue on three sides of the cardboard.
- Paste the sheet on it.
- Make sure the opening of the frame is big enough to fit your photo in.
- Make everything that you want to make with quilling and glue it on your photo frame.
- Your quilling photo frame is ready!
It was my friend’ s birthday yesterday & I gave her a bag painted by me, I also gave her a poem , written by me on friendship.
I painted the bag & decorated it with glitter & wrote “best friends forever” under the painting.
What ever you do, the thing which is important is you made it.
If somebody would give me a gift made by self, even if it is not so perfect, I would be very happy.
I also made an envelope in which I put the poem.
I think, our feelings are more important than the gift.
Tell me which is more important ? A very luxurious gift given with no love or a simple gift given with lots of love? Of course you know the answer.
So what are you waiting for? Go & make gifts for your friends with a smile & you will be showered with even more smiles.

Friends don’t throw away old frames or invitation cards. We can turn them into beautiful paintings.
It is very easy to do that, all you have to do is:
Paint it and decorate it with clay.
And for the painting I used the back of the card.
I used the card because the material is very good.
