How to do it

Part 1

Apply white craft glue to edge of number with toothpick, and attach to card, using tweezers.
Step 1

Print out numbers in desired font (a fancy shape lends itself well to quilling) and size (we used 650-point Linoscript for a 4-by-6-inch piece of card stock); you'll use this as a template to shape numbers.

Curl one end of quilling paper strip by wrapping it about five times around quilling tool or the shaft of a screwdriver.
Step 2

For each digit, curl one end of a 1/4-inch-wide strip of quilling paper by wrapping it about five times around quilling tool or the shaft of a screwdriver.

Step 3

Then, using template, form number: Starting with curled end, bend paper for curves and crease for angles. Trim paper, leaving a few extra inches, and curl end. Apply white craft glue to edge of number with toothpick, and attach to card, using tweezers; hold in place to secure. To create stand: Cut triangle out of card stock and glue edge to card's back.
