Quilling 101

Quilling 101
Quilling, the coiling and shaping of narrow paper strips to create a design, has been around for years — hundreds, in fact. During the Renaissance, nuns and monks would roll gold-gilded paper remnants trimmed during the bookmaking process, and use them to decorate religious objects as an alternative to costly gold filigree. Quilling later became a pastime of 18th and 19th century young ladies in England, who would decorate tea caddies and pieces of furniture with paper filigree. In all of that time, the process has remained very much the same, but quilling designs and specialty supplies have definitely caught up to the 21st century. The short list of necessities includes strips of lightweight paper, glue, and a tool with which to roll the paper — that’s it! Many arts and crafts stores sell basic tools and packages of multicolor paper strips. Materials Directions When purchasing a tool there are 2 basic types: a slotted tool and needle tool.

Quilling with Quilled Creations Carambola Flowers by Carmen Sprung If you’ve been following me on Flickr for a while, you’ve probably seen this picture of Carambola Flowers before – I folded them ages ago! But since my Pro account is going to expire in a few days time (and I don’t feel like upgrading it again), a lot of my old photos won’t be displayed anymore. So I decided it would be a good idea to share the very best of them on my blog! These absolutely beautiful origami flowers were designed by Carmen Sprung and I just love them!

Quilling, Art and Expression How to Make Paper Roses Now that you've created your template, how do you make paper roses? Just follow the next step. In order to save room on this page, I've created a slide-show on how to assemble your flower. Just follow the steps and pictures. Materials Colored paper of your choice Chenille stems (pipe cleaners) Glue Gun and glue sticks Floral tape or green masking tape Simply trace your pattern on the colored paper of your choice and cut it exactly the way you did for the template. Next, slide the cut design between a ruler and your thumb to curl the paper slightly. This is the fun part! Once you're done rolling up the whole flower, tuck the small tail around the stem and glue in place. Next, draw and cut some leaves, how many you do is up to you. Finally, if you feel really creative, put all the paper roses in a paper cone to finish off the look. Happy Crafting!
