Description

Paper Quilling is using rolled up pieces of paper to make art. It started as a hobby for nuns and priests. They would cut the edges from the pages of books and create art from them. Then it became popular during the 18th century for women, because it was thought to be simple and not too stressful. Today, quilling is a hobby around the world... people use quilling to create wedding invitations, ornaments, or just art for fun.

Students looked at examples of quilled paper and I demonstrated how to create different shapes and curls. Students then created their own quilled snowflakes. They used rotational symmetry when creating their snowflake.

Objectives

Students will be able to identify types of paper quilled forms, and create one using the strategies demonstrated.

Supplies Needed

Tru-Ray® Sulphite Construction Paper
Scissors
White school glue
Pencil
Ruler
Quilling tools (optional)

Standards

CCSS.Math.Content.4.G.A.1 Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.G.A.2 Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category and identify right triangles.
CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.B.4 Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RH.6-8.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including vocabulary specific to domains related to history/social studies.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RH.6-8.7 Integrate visual information (e.g., in charts, graphs, photographs, videos, or maps) with other information in print and digital texts.

Instructions

Step 1

Teacher uses PowerPoint lesson to show examples of paper quilling techniques and styles, as well as go over the history of paper quilling.

Step 2

Teacher demonstrates how to roll 12" x .5" strips of Tru-Ray® Construction Paper into coils, using either hands or a quilling tool.

Step 3

Students start with a 9" x 9" piece of Tru-Ray® Construction Paper backing.

Step 4

Using a pencil, students draw a dot in the center of their paper and use a ruler to draw six lines branching out from the center.

Step 5

Students begin rolling paper in sets of six.

Step 6

Students use white school glue to apply their paper coils to their snowflake design, using rotational symmetry.

Step 7
