Hey, I've quilled for 2 years now, but your first try was way better then mine!  Grin
I suggest buying a paper cutter (if you don't already have one) and a real quilling tool if you like quilling and you decide to do more of it.

Excellent first results!  Way better than my first attempts.  I've been quilling for a while, although I haven't made any new projects in a while.   

I have a few tips:
1. I use a slotted tool, some people use a needle tool.  Either one of these are only about $3 or $4.

2.  I buy pre-cut paper.  For large projects it saves time and frustration.  Also, it provides much more even edges.

3. practice, practice, practice.  It takes a steady hand, so it takes some practice.

I have no affiliation with this website, but I use them almost exclusively.  quilledcreations.co m  I have been very happy with their products and service for several years now.  Also, there are a lot of helpful tips on there. 

Good luck keep it up!

I am about to attempt my 1st quilling project and I appreciate reading about your "first time"! Smiley  Excellent use of a bobby pin indeed.  I was wondering if I could avoid buying tools for my 1st attempt...  I have a few books from the library and a pattern/tutorial from a blog... now, I need the paper and some time.  Can't wait to get started.  Thanks for everyone's ideas...I have wanted to try quilling for years.  Cheesy
