I found that a really great material to print this grid on is Inkjet Transparency sheets.

This is my first time quelling and I'm not sure how to start. I would really like to make the snowflakes

Hi Deb, the pattern I offer for free here is a grid to help you pin your shapes as you form your snowflake. To learn how to quill, here are some links to offer more details:

what kind of glue are you using? I can never get mine to stick

Hi there, I like to use: 1) Aleene's Acid-free Tacky Glue and 2) Lineco Neutral PH Adhesive because they are much thicker than children's school glue. Then I sometimes like to use Martha Stewart's Gel Adhesive.

I forced my friends to dump out their kid's glue and use some of mine, then received follow up emails about how much difference it made to their quilling speed. Here are some posts on my blog about glue:

Love yr snowflakes! Thanks for sharing! I always find it a challenge figuring out the length of the differentf quilling strips. Do you have any guidance for that? thanks!

Hi mettefisc5740549, thanks! I have always thought I'd get around to making patterns for these, but haven't found the time - someday! Until then, all I did was give it a whirl by trying out a strip at 4". If it's too big, I save it for another element area. If it's too small, it's very easy to add as smaller arm bits. I never end up tossing out these elements. Here is a link to Ann Martin's page, which has several tutorial links for making snowflakes!
