Free Quilling Pattern Mother's Day Card

quilling quilled mothers day card paper filigree filigrana
Whenever I think of Mom's I think about how we love unconditionally. So this card is a way to commemorate that love.

I started with a white card blank (the size of the card is up to you - depends on what you have at hand)

I wrote in as neat a flowing cursive hand that I could the following words:


I wrote them so that they were growing along the long side of the card (these are the stems of my flowers)

I then created flowers frowing from the top of these stems

The Love flower

  • 4 - 4 in (10.2 cm) Loose Coils

  • 2 - 4 in (10.2 cm) Teardrops (for the leaves)

  • I accented the flower with a "crystal" / "gem"

The Unconditional flower

  • 9 - 3 in (7.6 cm) Teardrops arranged along the stem

  • 1 - 4 in (10.2 cm) Tight Roll placed at the top

  • 2 small "crystals" or "gems" were used to dot the "I's"

The MOM flower

  • 3 - 4 in (7.6 cm) Teardrops

  • Accented with a "crsytal" or "gem"

  • 2 - 4 in (10.2 cm) Teardrops (for the leaves)

  • Round, red crystal or gem for the "O" in Mom

What garden would be complete without a butterfly?
Head and Body

  • 1 - 4 in (10.2 cm) Marquise

  • 1 - 2 in (5 cm) white strip with just a tiny strip of black glued to the end. The tight roll is coiled so that the black is in the center like an eye

  • 1 - .5 in (1.3 cm) strip cut in half 3/4 of the way down the strip. Glue the end that was not cut to the head and curl the cut ends to create the antennae

Large Wing

  • 3 in (7.6 cm) strip glued to a 3 in (7.6 cm) White strip glued to a 4 in (10.2 cm) strip

  • Roll your coil so that the 4 in (10.2 cm) end is rolled last

Small Wing:

  • 4 in (10.2 cm) Teardrop

Arrange as shown

Add some dashes to show the path your little butterfly flew
Add a bright, cheerful sun in the corner and some grass

Have Fun!
