How to Make Quilling Basic Shapes - Tight Coil

Tight Coil

Tight Coil: Often use in the central of the quilling projects or fix other "parts". 

You need to prepare for making tight coil:

  1. Glue
  2. Quilling Slotted Tools
  3. Quilling Paper Strips
Note: You can buy these kits and tools from Lantee Quilling Store >>

How to make Tight Coil Step by Step:

  1. Hold the paper strip in one hand and the quilling tool in the other. Insert the edge of the paper into the slot and begin rolling the coil by spinning the quilling tool. 
  2. After you’ve rolled the paper halfway, add another strip of paper and continue rolling. 
  3. After you’ve rolled a few more inches of paper, add the third strip of paper. 
  4. When you reach the end of the paper strip, add glue to secure the end and hold until the glue is dry. (If you squeeze too much glue on the paper, simply spread it across the barrel of the coil. Your fingers will get sticky so you can wipe your fingers off with a damp towel or baby wipes.) 
  5. Remove the coil from quilling tool. Be careful that the coil’s center doesn’t come out when you remove it from the tool. Hold the center of the coil with your fingernail as you slide it off the tool. 

Note: You can also use this method to make even larger discs. If you are rolling several strips of paper into one coil, you may want to glue the strips together as you add them. 

Your first tight coil is finished! Make more for your favorite project.
