    Securing a rolled quill strip to prevent it from unfurling involves careful handling and the use of appropriate adhesives. Here’s a step-by-step guide:<div>

    <div>

    **Select a High-Quality Quilling Paper:** Begin with a good-quality quilling paper, as this will make it easier to maintain the desired shape.

    **Apply Adhesive Correctly:** Use a minimal amount of glue or adhesive along the edge of the paper strip. A fine-tip applicator can help control the glue amount. Avoid excess glue that may seep out and cause the quill to stick to surfaces.


    **Allow for Drying Time:** After applying the adhesive, allow the rolled quill strip to dry completely before releasing it. This ensures that the glue sets, holding the quill in its rolled shape.


    **Use a Holding Tool:** While the quill dries, use a holding tool like a paper clip, hairpin, or a specialized quilling tool to keep the roll in place. This prevents accidental unraveling.


    *Consider a Sealant:** For added security, you can use a clear sealant or a thin layer of clear nail polish along the edge of the quill. This provides an extra layer of protection against unraveling.


    *Practice Consistent Tension:** Maintain consistent tension as you roll the quill strip. Even tension helps in creating a uniform coil, making it less likely to unfurl.

    By following these steps and practicing good quilling techniques, you can create beautifully rolled quill strips that stay in place without unraveling.
