Twist and twirl
I wanted to do a project that involved using up some of my construction paper. I am sure I am not the only one out there that opens a cupboard and says that some of this needs to be used. Well after a trip over to Pinterest, I decided a quilling project looked like it might be fun. So I challenged my Art 3 class to create projects using quilling techniques. We spent some time looking at a variety of ways to approach quilling. I then told them that they could do any picture that they wanted with as many techniques as they liked. I think if I do this again, I might try to have them use at least 4 different techniques so that they try some of the other ones.
