Quilling: A Novel form of Cardmaking


I came across quilling when I was searching through the different craft supplies listed on ebay. The quilling patterns fascinated me and I decided to try my hands on paper quilling. For me quilling was a new art form of cardmaking, but if you research a little, you will find that quilling has been around since Renaissance. Quilling is the art of making rolls of thin paper strips and then making beautiful designs.

I made a quilled birthday card for my brother-in law last year when I was in Edinburgh. Unfortunately I didn't save snap of that quilled card. That was my only quilling creation. I bought many quilling papers, and quilling kits on ebay because we had to move back to India and there you can't get quilling supplies easily. Regrettably, I don't have any quilling tools with me now, every thing is stored in the craft box up in the attic.

  2. thanks for dropping by Ann, I am really happy that you came to visit. I am a huge fan of yours. The peacock in question won an award at Quilling Guild's Exhibition in 2000. I have linked the picture to the site where I found it.
