Most of us I'm sure have a mini moulds, but I though for those ladies that have just started out with Quilling, I made this tempory gataged before I got my mini mould. I took a cork and pushed two different sizes pins into the cork. The best length of paper would be round 7'5 cm.
Useful idea for recycling corks

Hi Lenne80, a mini mould is helps you to make a cone shape. all you have to do is to make a tight curl, then place it on a mini mould, or make one yourself like i did as shown above with a cork. Then gently push the tight curl over the top of the pin until it makes a cone shape. But do not forget to put glue inside of the cone so it will not collapse. You can buy mini mould over the internet just write Quilling mini mould and you will find it, also there are demos on the You Tube. I hope this has help you good luck
no Lenne80 I do not dwell on my dreams honey, I am living it right now with my crafts. Doing something I always wanted to do. I always wanted to be a goldsmith but was not allow to. So now I am a papersmith I know that sounds a big quer but i am doing my thing and living also a wonderful life so they do go both together.Have a great day

I know this is an old topic... but as I didn't have any marbles or corks on hand.. I snuck into my husband's fishing gear and stole a couple of his sinkers for molds They work brilliantly Just another idea
