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.

Thank you for this - I’ve been trying to work on making something off and on and now I can scrap it and not worry about it anymore!
This was perfect! Exactly what I have been looking for.
I can't seem to get your new method files to down load I must be doing something wrong
I like it because you can make your own
I do not make all my own strips, I buy most of them to get the great variety of colors. But there are times when I want different strip sizes in a certain color or shade, then I use the paper I want to cut those sizes.
