Quilled snowflakes or Kolam?




      I had this page book marked (along with so many other pages with beautiful creations that I hope to quill some day)and was wanting to quill the beautiful snowflakes by Deb mackes. Mine does not have the characteristic  hexagonal shape of a snowflake , It is more circular like a kolam. I love to do symmetrical shapes and I am happy with this one.


     I have hand cut the strips and I have used my favourite hand made paper as background.






Roll the strip into a loose coil.




Pinch on two opposite sides to get the eye shape.




I have pinched the eye shape again in two opposite sides to get this square shape.




Thanks for stopping by, Have a creative day.
