Quilling Basics - Getting Started

Quilling, or Paper Filigree, is an ancient art form that some say dates back to the ancient Egyptians. Today we use a variety of papers in varying lengths and widths to create our quilled masterpieces. Quilling involves taking strips of paper and twirling, rolling, shaping, and gluing them together. The name Quilling is derived from the name of the tool that the 16th century nuns used to create their shapes.
