Have you ever tried Paper Quilling?
I have not — but it looks very possible with the paper strips in multiple colors, a thorough guidebook, and predesigned templates for each letter of the alphabet!
So what is quilling?
Quilling is a rolled paper art form that dates all the way back to the Renaissance time period. The finished product is beautiful, but it looks very complicated. Looking at the pictures of the beautiful products may turn some people off from trying this paper art; however, with this kit, each step is broken down. All techniques are demonstrated so that anyone with a little bit of patience and practice should be able to make these works of art!
I could see my teenage girls making decor for their bedroom walls with this kit. I also think they would make lovely gifts for baby showers or bridal showers. After the letter is assembled, it could be placed in shadow box to keep dust off of it and to make it become a wonderful decor piece.
Since the book includes 320 strips of quilling paper and all 26 letter templates (that could be copied if your name uses a letter more than once) and the quilling tool, you could make so many personalized gifts that are works of art for just the price of this kit! You will also want to have some thick white glue, a ruler , and a pair of tweezers on hand.
In the picture below you can see how the kit includes directions with step-by-step pictures on how to do the different techniques and shapes shown for all the different letters. There are 15 different techniques and shapes that are taught plus instructions for the basic components of quilling are included such as how to glue down the pieces and framing the outside of the letters.
