YOU WILL NEED:
Quilling paper, assorted
Fine liners: black, red

2. Make the elf a tunic by rolling four green strips together, seal as before and dome to a height of 3cm. Create a flat disc from three and a half green strips, coat with glue and allow to dry before slotting into the end of the tunic. This will make a base to attach the legs onto.
3. The legs and arms are made in the same way, from one strip, rolled tightly, sealed and pushed to a point using the sharp end of a knitting needle.
