Curl tinsel

Pull a single strand from the tinsel container.

Pull a single strand from the tinsel package.

Design note: This is one of the times where the least expensive tinsel is the best. You might just discover a few strands in the packet that are slightly thicker. Use both thin and thicker strands to add visual interest.

Pull the tinsel over a blade to curl

Gently rest the pad of your thumb on the blade and pull the tinsel over a blade to curl.

If you press down more on the blade you get a tight curl and less pressure results in a looser curl

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
