On the Fifth Day of Quilling - Scroll Tree

On the third day of quilling we will make a beautiful Scrolled Christmas Tree. I love to challenge myself to use a particular shape and today it is the scroll shape. Please refer to my previous Scroll and More Scroll shape instructions for making this tree.

For making this tree I used 1/8 inch (.3 cm) wide strips. For this design you will need the following number of strips:
1 Heart-T-Scroll
  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) heart scroll
  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) T-scroll

2 Kissing scrolls
  • 4 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) S-scrolls

Remaining branches
  • 6 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) S-scrolls
  • 6 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) double scrolls

  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) red diamond

  • 1 - 3 inch (7.62 cm) red S-scroll

To put this tree together, I recommend the following:
  • Place the Heart-T-Scroll down first
  • Line up your 2 kissing scrolls next
  • To keep a straight line, it may be best to work over a piece of wax paper with graph paper underneath. Then you can use the straight lines to make sure your tree is straight.
Along the left side and then the right side, starting at the top, add the following:
  • S-scroll, pointing down
  • Double scroll, pointing up
  • S-scroll, pointing down
  • Double scroll, pointing up
  • Double scroll, pointing down
  • S-scroll, pointing down

See the picture for placement. You can then adorn the tree as in this example with pearls.
