There were many things about Craftsy that impressed me. It takes a talented team to put a class together, beside ensuring I looked and sounded good (and feeding me well too!). Throughout the entire process, Craftsy focused on teaching skills that students could then use in other projects.
For my first lesson, I teach how to make a Fanned Die Cut Christmas Card. It even holds a little prezzie in the tree – a Hershey’s Kiss! Rather than throw away the paper in the middle, I thought it would be nice to make a bonus item, so I came up with a mini tree that also works as a place card or a menu item note. The 3D star sits flat on the card and puffs up while you start forming it. It’s hard to see in this photo, but in the class, I show a method to make them textured and look like fluffy flakes!
In Lesson 3, I teach how to sculpt your die cuts, so that they take on more life and movement. I love combining quilling with my paper projects, and show how to accent the card with simple scroll embellishments.
I’m pretty sure the topmost item that inspires most people to take up quilling is snowflakes. In Lesson 7, I supply pre-measured quilling strips (I like to cut my own) and a grid to follow along to make it super easy.
There are 7 lessons in total and run for about 20 minutes or so each. If you’ve never heard of Craftsy before, it’s an online learning classroom for a wide range of hobbies. Your class never expires and I check in to answer questions.
