Quilling is a lost art to many people in that they do not know how to do it, but they often still enjoy what you can create and are willing to pay for it. This means that you can make some extra money this Christmas with your quilling patterns. Here are a few ideas you could use:

1. Make Your Own Christmas Cards to Sell

The first way that you can use to make money from your Christmas quilling patterns is by creating Christmas cards to sell to others. You can make money by selling these to friends and family, online, on eBay or at your local stores.

2. Make Your Own Christmas Decorations

Christmas decorations can be done in 2D or 3D quilling using your quilling patterns and once again can be sold in a number of different locations depending on how adventurous you are and how much money you want to make from them.

3. Create Christmas Gifts

Moving beyond special Christmas quilling patterns you can also make a wide variety of gifts. Make quilled boxes either to put other gifts in or as gifts themselves; create quilled jewelry to give to the females in your family; or beautiful pictures made from quilling. What you create is really up to you and what you enjoy doing, as well as what your friends and family may wish to receive. Once you have saved money by making for friends and family make extra and sell these.

4. Do Your Own Holiday Classes for Children

If you enjoy working with children then why not offer to teach classes to children during school holidays. You can teach them how to use your Christmas quilling patterns to make decorations or cards to take home to their parents or give to friends. Make money by charging for these classes.

Quilling is a fun and exciting way to make more money during the festive season using Christmas quilling patterns to make cards and decorations, or other patterns to create gifts. You could even share this craft with others by offering holiday classes and charging for these.
