Making stocking cloth butterflies pattern

Hi friends, back with a new butterfly. I hope you all got it. My earlier post got a little butterfly with yellow wings, that was my first try in making a stocking butterfly which came out good but was not that neat and perfect as it need to be.

So here is my second try on making a stocking butterfly which was actually a perfect one and a neat one compared to the first, so i am much more happy in making this cute little white butterfly.

So here is my new butterfly with small little round wings and cute little orange body with aluminium wire antenna fixed to it.

You can fix this anywhere on your room or make cards or to gift boxs or anything.
How is my new butterfly? Do comment friends.

How to make stocking butterflies

Friends here I'm back with a new post and that too not about quilling craft, this is stocking craft. I have earlier done a post on stocking flower Flower Making - Colourful Stocking flowers, you can check to know the making of stockings.

In my post Flower Making - Colourful Stocking flowers you can learn the proper technique and also the instructions will be much easier for you all to try out new techniques in stocking craft.

So here is tried out making a stocking butterfly. As this was my first try in making butterfly I'm very much happy with the results. You need to use the same technique as of stocking flowers. Aluminium wire needs to be turned into butterflies wings shape as needed.

I'll be posting more butterflies of different varieties and will be sharing with you all. I hope you all will like this one, awaiting your valuable comments and suggestions.

This is my stocking butterfly. How is it ?

How to make Kusudama Flower ball

Kusudama paper flower is an ancient old Japanese craft. These are Origami paper shapes glued together. These are basically used for decorations.

I have here made this kusudama ball as good decorative piece. Here i explained step by step method for kususdama flower making. I hope you all will enjoy this new technique.

Materials required:
1. Origami paper (any colour)
2. Glue


1. First of all you need to cut around 60 square pieces each of 7cm x7cm.

2. Here is the first step after you cut the first square piece. Fold the bottom corner to the top. You will get a triangle shape by this.


3. Fold the left and right corners up to the middle corner and make a square shape.



4. Fold the same points down. Do the same folding to both sides.



5. Open up the flaps and flatten them. Flatten both the sides equally.


6. Fold the top triangles towards you so they are level with the edges of the paper.


7. Fold the triangles back using the crease you made earlier and glue the outside triangles together ans you will again get a square shape.


8. Now fold the two together and glue it.


Similarly make 5 petals for one flowers. Glue all together and make a flower. Similarly make 12 such flowers.

Now glue each flowers one by one to the petal and make half circle. This way you will make 2 half balls.

Here is the way to make Kusudama ball.

Quilling pattern - Husking earrings design

Today i am back with a new technique on quilling. I'm here with husking pattern on quilling.

Huskings are made by winding paper around a pattern of straight pins. I have some the pattern of husking and step by step method on how to make husking.
I hope you all will enjoy the new technique.

Basic steps for husking.

1. Get a trace paper where you can make the dotted points. See the picture below.


2. Place pins on each holes as shown.


3. Using a length of paper, gently crease one end and “hook” it around the pin numbered 1.
Bring paper up and wind around pin number 2 and then back down to pin number 1. Glue where the paper overlaps at pin number 1.


5. Bring paper up and wind around pin number 3 and then back down to pin number 1. Glue where the paper overlaps at pin number 1.


6. Bring paper up and wind around pin number 4 and then back down to pin number 1.


7. Bring paper up and wind around pin number 4 and then back down to pin number 1.


8. In the same way continue to wind up and bring back to pin number 1 from pin 6 and pin 7. It should look this way.


9. After you finish this roll the strip starting from pin number 1 roll on each points and bring back to pin number 1.

In this way you will get the completed husking pattern.


Now you can decorate any thing with this patter or make greeting cards or some cool earrings just like the one i made.
