Celebrate that special bond with your brother with a handmade rakhi this year. Each brother has a special edge, so why not give a special edge to his rakhi too.
These rakhi designs use our latest design of quilling strips - the edge strips. This style of quilling paper has a special shining edge or golden, silver or bronze colour.
The quilling rakhi uses the classic shapes of paper quilling - tight coils, lose coils, drops and eyes. These come together in interesting quilling patterns to make lovely traditional designs of the quilled rakhi.
Another beautiful aspect of the design is that it uses a special way of attaching the thread. The thread is passed through the tight coils at the end of the design rather than just being pasted to the back of the rakhi. This makes the quilling rakhi stronger - just like the strong bond of a brother and a sister.
To add the final touch, these handmade rakhi designs also have a sparkling stone decoration. This gives the paper quilling rakhi a truly royal touch - one befitting a brother who is a knight or a king!

This new style of quilling strips is sure to dazzle you. This quilling paper has the same colour vibrancy that you love in your quilling strips but it also has the shining edge that will make your quilling designs stand out.
There are 3 colour options in the edge series - Golden, Silver and Bronze. They come in multi-colour packs with the same 12 colours that you have loved in the Signature Collection. Each pack has a total of 200 quilling strips.
The edge quilling papers look fantastic as tight coils and as loose coils. We also loved the effect they give when used in the Border Buddy or even in 3D quilling. So be sure to try it out in all types of paper quilling ideas you might have.
Rakhi making has recently become synonymous with quilling rakhies. We see so so many wonderful and creatively innovative designs in these from quillers around the country. It seems so unfair that the Lumba Rakhi remains relatively under-explored. So here's a bit of our experimentation with the Lumba Rakhi. The edge strips and sparking stones add the special shine to these too. The rakhi designs and lumba designs can go hand in hand for bhaiya and bhabhi to have a matching pair. Or find out your bhabhi's favourite colour or what she is wearing this Raksha Bandhan and match your rakhi lumba to that. In either case, this rakhi is going to be the shining star on your bhabhi's kangan this Rakshabandhan. Sound good? Let's get started!
