Check out this cute cat quilling Valentine’s Day card! I’ve been searching for a unique Valentine’s Day card for Marty for Valentine’s Day. I’m not a huge fan of store-bought cards most of the time.

Cat Quilling Valentines Day Card

I really like cards that I make myself because they are more unique and one of a kind. Every year, I try to think of something different to make him. In the past, I made him a Valentine’s Day card using the teabag folding technique.

Since Marty loves cats, I thought that making a Cat Quilling Valentines Day Card would be perfect for him. I started quilling a few years ago and it’s a fun, relatively easy way to make a variety of different shapes out of colored strips of paper. While it takes a little bit of practice, it’s a fairly easy craft to master.

Cat quilling card directions

  • Create one large quilled circle and pinch ends slightly to make it oval-shaped. Glue shut. This is the cat’s body.
  • Create a medium quilled circle in the same color and glue shut. This is the cat’s head.
  • Create two small quilled circles in the same color and glue shut. These are the cat’s feet.
  • Create two very small quilled circles in the same color and glue shut. These are the cat’s ears.

  • Let all of these pieces dry completely.
  • Very carefully, glue the body and head to your notecard.
  • Pinch the ends of the feet and ears slightly to get them in the right shape. Glue if necessary to hold together. Glue onto the cat’s body on your notecard.
  • Cut 6 small strips for whiskers. You can use the same color or you can use black or white. Glue them to the cat’s face.
  • Quill a strip of paper in the same color as the body and let out one end while gluing the other end. This is the cat’s tail. Attach to the body.
  • Allow to dry completely.

  • You can add layers to your notecard with other pieces of card stock or simply leave it one color.
  • Write your verse.  For a child or friend, you could use “You are Purr-fect Valentine.” For a romantic partner, you could use “You make me Purr Valentine.”
  • You can add a simple quilled red heart to the card by taking one strip of red quilling paper and rolling it in half. Then curl each side in and glue.
