For the most traditional heart, all that’s needed are two strips of quilling paper, each the same length.  I used 6″ strips for this demo to quill hearts that would be about 3/4″ when finished.  The smaller heart in the photo below was made with 2 4″ strips of paper. Of course, bigger is ok, too!

Roll each strip into a coil, then pinch into a teardrop. If you need a reminder on how to create basic quilling shapes, take a look at my coil video.

Beginning Steps to Creating a Basic Quilled Paper Heart How to make quilling paper hearts: 4 different ways

Add a little glue between the two teardrops, push them together and let dry. If you’re like me and you’re a quiller who uses straight pins, it can be helpful to use a few at this point to keep the 2 halves of the heart as close together as possible while they are drying.  Other wise, hold them in place until dry.

Once the basic heart is formed, you can jazz it up a bit by adding an outline of a contrasting color. Below, I show how I added another layer to a traditional red heart with an ivory strip.

I start in the top center of the heart and add a very small dot of glue (remember with quilling, less is always more!).  Next, I place a torn end of the new color into the glue and let it set. Once dry, I wind the strip around the outside of the heart, using a teensy amount of glue around the entire edge as I go.

Once I get to the center, I use my needle tool to push the ivory strip into the center of the peak of the heart, so it can follow the shape exactly. In order to really make the outline pop, wrap the heart at least 2 times.

For the third type of paper heart, I thought that instead of a written tutorial with photos, it would be easier to follow a video.



Lastly, I’m going to include a throwback tutorial that I wrote a while back for the Examiner.com.  I still use this approach to quilling all the time and I have a few examples for sale in my Etsy shop right now!

Paper Quilling: Heart-Shaped Crafts and Designs for Valentine's Day

Lady Rain works as a daytime stock trader and writes about crafts and travels. She spends her weekends doing papercraft models and painting.

A Basic Quilled Heart

Let's begin with a quilled heart. If you are new to quilling, check out this tutorial for some basic instructions.


  1. Roll a strip of quilling paper into a closed coil, and glue the end of the strip to the coil.
  2. Pinch one side of the coil to make a teardrop shape.
  3. Make a similar teardrop shape with another strip of quilling paper.
  4. Glue the sides of the two teardrop coils together to make a quilled heart.

Heart-Shaped Pendant

This heart-shaped pendant uses an open coil technique.


  1. Fold a strip of red quilling paper in half.
  2. Roll both ends of the quilling paper until the coils meet in the centre.
  3. Glue the coiled ends together so that it looks like the shape of a heart.
  4. Make a small closed coil and glue it to the top of the heart pendant.
  5. Paint the pendant with varnish to make it waterproof and to strengthen it.
  6. Leave the pendant to dry.
  7. String a necklace through the small coil.

Embellishments for Handmade Cards and Quilling Projects


  1. Take a strip of red quilling paper.
  2. Fold the paper in half.
  3. Bring the two ends of the paper together to form an outline of a heart.
  4. Glue the ends of the paper together.
  5. Glue the heart on a piece of paper or handmade card.
  6. Make some red closed coils.
  7. Arrange the coils along the inside border of one side of the heart.
  8. Glue the coils to the side of the heart to hold them in place.
  9. Make a quilled heart with two teardrop coils and arrange it on the other side of the big heart.
