Quilling Strips - MACHINE CUT
Cutting your own quilling paper strips with an electric cutting machine is really quick and easy, and it’s how I’ve been cutting my own paper for many years now. I had to cut my own thicker paper for “on edge quilling” or "quillography" projects because venders just didn’t offer it until the last couple of years.
Ever since I made cutting files for myself, I’ve been giving them away on my blog. If you’ve downloaded my cutting files in the past, then you’ll want to download my updated files because I’ve made significant improvements on them. Watch my video tutorial to see how the cutting path has been made as efficient as possible.
Inches: 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/5
Millimetres: 1, 2, 3, 5, 10
Method 1 - Cut Quilling Strips with Margins
Cut your strips with margins on either side and they will never get tangled. After tearing them off, you'll need to trim the ends to make them clean.
Method 2 - Cut Quilling Strips with Fringe
Leave a margin on one side and your strips will still be manageable. There is less wastage than Method 1, and I usually use this method on scrap pieces rather than full sized pieces of paper.
Method 3 - Cut Quilling Strips Without Margins
There is no wastage with this method of cutting, and the strips will all be individually cut.
Bonus - Happy Birthday Message
Decorate a birthday gift with a unique twist using letters on a ribbon of quilling!
HI, I was happy with the file, I wasn't looking forward to making my own. Cricut costs a lot and then they make you buy every little thing...I wasn't happy with them and in hindsight would have gone another route. With your files I was very happy thank you.
Extremely helpful I have used the svg files with my cricut and has saved so much time and money cutting my own thankyou very much
I've downloaded these cut files in the past. Earlier this month I lost all the files off my laptop and was thrilled to find these still available. Plus the cute birthday message - what fun! Thank you for being so generous with your time and talents.
I set up the plan or design on my Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut north and south, than I elongated the design to use most of the 8.5 X 11 inch colored paper. The plan worked out fine.
