As many of you know I have recently got hooked on quilling. I discovered husking and I wanted a comb but was having trouble finding one. So decided to make my own.
So here is what I did.
You will need fine corrugated card ( used in card making ), 15 cocktail sticks and PVA glue.
When choosing your cocktail sticks make sure they are as smooth as possible with no nicks or splinters in them, this will save you a lot of time later .
Cut 2 pieces of corrugated card 8cm X 3cm
Apply glue to every alternate row of the corrugated card.
Put a cocktail stick into each channel of glue 15 in total.
Cut the tips off 7 sticks and then cut them in half.
Start wrapping the ribbon or thread tightly from the middle trapping the end under as you go.
Don't go beyond the end cocktail sticks as it will unravel if you do.
When you get to one end start going back in the other direction keeping the ribbon or thread tight as you go. Cover in this way at least three or four times if you use ribbon then tuck the end well in when you have finished. If you have used thread you can spread a bit of glue over the end of the thread. Leave to dry. If you wish you can varnish to make it last longer.
Then it is ready to use.
I hope you find this as useful as I have.
Thank you for visiting and I will see you again soon.
