This lovely alpaca certainly brightens up our craft preview this week.
You can create the cheeky chap using basic quilling techniques.
You will need quilling strips, a quilling tool and glue plus a board and some pastel chalk to colour in the background. Get these from local craft shops or online.
We take you through every step of making the alpaca, which features coils, petals and fringed flowers. Once all the elements are ready, it is simply a case of sticking everything down in place and adding the features.
If you enjoy working our alpaca and would like to try more, this design is taken from the book “Quilled Animals” by Diane Boden, published by Search Press. You can order it from www.searchpress.co.uk.
Quilling is a fun and inexpensive craft, we hope you have fun giving it a go!
