Free Quilling Pattern Angel

This quilled Angel is very sweet isn't she? She is made using the Spreuer or Onion Holder technique and floats on her very "springtime" colors.

You can follow these instructions to make her for your very own!

>quilling quilled angel spreuerHead:

2 strips of Pink paper, tight roll
Shape the tight roll by gently pushing center up

Hair (look at closeup to see how hair looks glued and curled):

1 – 6 in (7.6 cm) strip yellow
Glue yellow strip to top of head. Make 2 cuts and curl to give Angel 3 curly Q’s.


1 – 3 in (7.6 cm) strip gold for the halo
Glue to back

For Both the Body and Wings, you will use the Spreuer Technique (click link for more information)

General instructions are to Start in the center and wrap your strip to the left then to the right. Continually going back and forth.

Body (Make 1, look at picture):

Start at 9 – 8L – 8R – 7L – 7R – 6L – 6R – 5L – 5R

Wings (Make 2, look at picture):

Start at 7 – 6L – 5L – 4L – 3L


I gave her a collar that is made from approximately 1.5 in (3.8 cm) Spiral
She also has a bouquet of flowers with some flourish of green

I placed her on a 3 in x 3 in (7.6 cm x 7.6 cm) square that I punched using a Fiskars Border punch (I loved the punch, but I was so disappointed when the punch broke)

The Quote is from Luciano de Crescenzo:

"We are each of us angels with only one wing,
and we can only fly by embracing one another"

Very nice Antonella.
You are making regret I have not done any spreuer quilling yet, even though I have the tool in my box!

I hope you do give Spreuer a try! It is a lot of fun :-)

You should make one of these for Franco. He can keep it in his bag and it can be like a gaurdian angle for him! Love you!
