Quilling Scrolls Tutorial

Open scrolls help create the beautiful lace-like quality quil work. They are made by rolling one or both ends of a paper strip. But unlike coils, the rolled ends are not glued. When making scrolls, you will still want to condition the paper in the direction you want to roll.

Loose scroll :
Using your quilling tool, loosely roll a strip into a coil. Remove the tool and allow the roll to relax. Do not glue.


S – scroll : Loosely roll one end of a paper strip half way down. Flip the paper and loosely roll the other end in the opposite direction to form an ‘S’ shape. Do not glue.


C – scroll : Loosely roll one end of a paper strip half way down. Flip the paper and loosely roll the other end toward the center until it meets the loose coil made from the other end and forms an ‘C’ shape. Do not glue.


V – scroll : Fold your strip in half. Loosely roll each end outward to form a ‘V’ shape. Do not glue.

Heart scroll : Fold your strip in half. Loosely roll each end inward towards the center to form a ‘V’ shape. Do not glue.


S-scrolls and C-scrolls make beautiful ‘filler’ quills for larger projects. V-scrolls and loose scrolls are often used as wonderful tendrils to accent quilled blooms. Scrolls can also be combined to form some lovely designs for interesting special effects.
