Create beautiful designs by rolling and shaping colorful paper strips. Quilling is great for embellishing scrapbook pages, greeting cards, tree ornaments, gift tags and boxes, home accents, and more. Roll strips of colorful paper into amazing works of art with quilling. The art of quilling, also called paper filigree, is believed to have originated in Europe as early as the 13th century. Nuns would take scraps of paper and create rolled designs that they used to decorate religious artifacts. The name itself comes from the original quilling tool. A bird feather quill was easy to find and the perfect size to wrap small bits of paper around. The simplicity and accessibility of this technique aided in its popularity, and it spread to other continents where it is still a practiced and popular form of papercraft today. One of the best parts of experimenting with quilling is that it can be used in so many ways. You can create handmade cards and announcements, add texture and fascinating detail to scrapbook pages, and even embellish found objects to create home décor. Make some ornaments to hang, or craft a unique picture frame to display your family photos. The options are as vast as your imagination! Quilling is a craft that is easy and inexpensive. All you need is quilling paper, a slotted quilling tool, scissors, and glue. If you are aiming for more elaborate designs, you can use a corkboard with pins to secure your rolled paper while it dries so that it keeps the desired shape. Add some beads, glitter, or other extras to your paper creations to showcase your creativity and make some truly unique and spectacular works. It's easy to learn how to quill. The steps in the process are simple: first, choose your paper in a color and width that works for your intended project; next, insert the paper into the quilling tool and roll; when you're done rolling, remove the paper and glue it fast! As you become more comfortable with your skills, you can try the other techniques shown in this book, such as twisting, folding, and husking. If you're tired of the same old craft projects and want something fun to explore, then quilling is a wonderful choice. Grab your copy of Quilling and explore the many ways that you can indulge your creative side with this beautiful artform!
