  • Quilling needle
  • Decorative stones
  • Scissor
  • Lace

  1. For the start, you will need bangles and cardboard. Then you need to make some interesting pattern on the cardboard using bangles for preparing the décor item. For that, you will need a big cardboard paper and arrange the bangles. On each corner, arrange two bangles in a straight line and place one bangle on these two bangles. You can then make a pattern on all these four corners of the cardboard.
  1. Remove all the bangles from the cardboard and then take a stencil shaped as a bangle arrangement. For doing this, you can take a cardboard, stick the bangles, and cut the cardboard in the shape of the design. Place the stencil on the cardboard paper on the four corners and trace its design.
  1. Make use of a ruler and pencil to connect all the designs with each other. Begin with the two designs. Place the cardboard in a diamond shape. Then connect the upper and lower designs while drawing out two parallel lines.
  1. Once you connect the two parallel lines, erase the middle part of the line using an eraser. This can give you a square formation. Then make use of a cutter and cut the outline of the entire design. You will get a square shape in the center and bangle designs on the corner.
  1. For having a design on white paper, you’ll need a decorative sheet. Take a color sheet and trace the entire cardboard design making use of a pencil. Cut it using a cutter or scissors and stick to the original cardboard design using glue. Then apply glue onto the entire design and allow the color sheet to stick properly.
  1. Once the design is set with a gorgeous color sheet surface, you can arrange the bangles on the design. Place the bangles on the design similar to the arrangements made earlier. Then use glue to stick all the bangles according to the design on four sides of the cardboard.
  1. Once the design is ready, you can start decorating it. Take the decorative stones and place them one at a time on the bangle junction. Take two pink stones and stick them on the side junction of the bangles. Then take the blue stone and stick it on the bottom junction. Repeat the same using another blue stone and stick it inside the upper bangle.

  1. After the outer portion is ready, you can decorate the inner square of the design. For doing so, take few quilling strips and make tight coils. Then apply glue to stick the coils properly. After that, make use of a long plain sheet using a ruler and cutter and cut some long thin strips from the sheet.
  1. Make a pattern using the strips. Then, bend the strip three times and make small cuts or fringes on the folded strip using scissors. When you open the strip, you can get small fringes on it. Then take the small quilling coil and use glue. Stick it on the sheet strip. Roll the strip on the coil and at the end, apply glue to stick it well. Open the fringes of the strip using your fingers gently.
  1. After the fringes are unfolded fully, the beautiful quilling coil becomes visible. This is shaped like a flower. Use such more flowers making use of several colored strips and quilling strips.
  1. Collect all the different colored flowers and stick it on the inner square of the design. Create a random design making use of colorful flowers and stick it with design well.
