Love to try…quilling.


I couple weeks ago I pulled this picture out of the New York Times Style Magazine. I was intrigued by it’s beauty.

According to The North American Quilling Guild

Quilling is:

“Quilling, also known as paper filigree, is the art of cutting and curling narrow strips of paper and laying them on edge to form intricate filigree    designs. The process, which dates back to at least the 13th Century, originated with religious orders who used the gilded edges of old manuscripts to decorate religious artifacts. It is believed the paper was curled around the base of a quill (or feather), hence the name quilling.”
