strips of paper quillingFor those that aren’t aware, I do some quilling.  This requires so MANY strips of paper, generally about 1/8 inch.

I began quilling because I had paper that I could use, not so I would have to purchase more.  Turns out that will typical quilling paper is very thin and long.  Not exactly what I have in my stash of card stock!

But, as it turns out I like to quill with many different kinds of paper; including, money!

I have been spending time cutting strips individually as needed.  Not that fun.  Not horrible, but not fun either.

I have looked at quilling dies, but cannot justify the expense since I have a Silhouette.  And the time I would have to STAND there to get strips…unlikely to happen!

Finally, this week, I got my act together…I made the files I need in Silhouette.  Yay, me!

I created files for 1/8 and 1/4 inch, and for flowers.  So much easier.  I simply couldn’t have done the flower blossoms with hearts without moving to the Silhouette (or purchasing strips!).
