Quilled Magnets with Corrugated Cardboard Strips

I involved my children to make these cute quilled magnets with Corrugated Cardboard Strips. This was our first time quilling with Corrugated Cardboard Strips, and the process was smooth because we followed the clear instructions on the package of the Corrugated Cardboard Strips from Quilled Creations. My children enjoyed making this fish and frog with the Corrugated Cardboard Strips.
It is fun and easy for children to do quilling with these pre-cut Corrugated Cardboard Strips as it does not require us to use a tool. All we have to do is roll tightly, glue, put an elastic band around the rolled strips and let it rest and dry before bending, folding or twisting to make shapes and characters. 
To make the fish and frog below we used... 
Mixed pack of Corrugated Cardboard Strips
White craft glue for the strips
Elastic bands to hold the rolled strips in place
Googly or wiggly eyes 
Glue guns to glue the googly eyes 
Round magnets
It is so much fun to get creative with this colourful cardboard strips. After creating the shapes we like, we can place a self-adhesive magnet on the back of the shape. These materials can be easily purchased online at quilledcreations.com
