Choose another color of Neon Color Explosion Paper. Cut it into narrow strips with Crayola Scissors. You will use these strips to do quilling—rolling decorative paper coils.
Smooth each strip between two fingers until the paper bends. Fold over one end and roll the paper to form a tight coil. Pinch coils into shapes, such as rectangles for candles, a teardrop, the letter S, or a circle. Glue the loose end in place and hold until the glue sets.
Make interior cuts in your card if you like. Arrange your coils on the cover of your card. Glue them in place. Air-dry the glue.
