Quilling

Quilling

Quilling is working with small strips of paper, manipulating them into designs.  It’s been around for centuries, but it is back in full force.  I recommend that you go to the hobby store or google quilling packets that give you the slotted tool that you need, plus basic instructions to start with simple designs.  That’s how I started, but a lot of hobby stores don’t carry quilling packets or supplies, so I will add some links to supplies available at Amazon.  I just bought a simple package with all I needed to start, plus you’ll need glue.  The picture I chose to use for this post shows you how far you can take this craft, it was done by an artist in Malaysia.  You can make stationary, jewelry, pictures, decorate frames, etc.  The sky’s the limit.  It is fun to do, but you do need to have a gentle touch with it, or your shapes will come out different, trust me – I learned this the hard way!  Below is a website that will help guide you on how to do it, but I suggest you buy a packet so you can have the tool and the basic shapes manual.

Here’s a link to buy a package that comes with the tools and paper that you will need to get started, no manual but a board to help you make the shapes at Amazon: http://amzn.to/2pOc211.

Here’s a link to a book covering all the basics that you will need to get started: http://amzn.to/2pYfvdB.
