Rolled Paper Strips Kids Crafts

This Rolled Paper Strips is a very colorful Kids Craft and is a pre-quilling activity.

Quilling is an art form that involves rolling, and gluing strips of paper together to create decorative designs. I had loved it as a kid and had made a couple of cards during craft classes in school. This rolled paper craft is sort of like a beginner's or kids quilling.  It is much easier and fun for kids. 
Supplies that you need:
  • Cardstock
  • Bright colored paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pencil/Pen
Cut out strips from the colored paper. Mine are printer paper, but construction paper should work too. I cut mine about 1/2"-3/4" wide. Make them as wide as you would like.

Roll the paper strips around a pencil/pen so they curl. I had  start the rolling for Putti and after a couple of times, she was doing it all by herself. To save time, I did like 5-6 at a time.

Here are some of our colorful rolls. Unlike in curling we chose not to glue the end of the roll, so some of the rolls opened up a bit. But, I love that way because we have a variety of roll sizes.

Apply glue to your cardstock and start gluing the paper rolls. I encouraged Putti to hold the roll down until a count of ten, so they glued nice and well.

After it dried, Putti went and added a couple more rolls over it in layers. Love the added layers !

And then we tried making some initials and a circle. I had to write the alphabet and draw a circle for her to glue the rolls on. I think if made on foam board or canvas this would make nice wall art too.
