Quilling fun with paper

Quilled flowers

Just for something different, I thought I would show that I can actually do quilling as well. For those that don't know what quilling is, it's a craft that uses paper to create all sorts of 3 dimensional objects. Often 2 or 3mm strips of coloured paper are curled and shaped into desired shapes and glued together to make the objects, other times the objects are made by folding and/or cutting paper to create the items.

As usual I gave all my quilling away without taking photos. This one was given as a mothers day card for my Mum last year, she framed it. So I got her to get it out of the frame and get a photo. So here it is. I put a lot of work into it, so I really did need a pic of it. There were 4 layers of flowers in this card, and because Mum loves all sorts of flowers and lots of color, I tried to get everthing into it.

I'll have to see if I can get other photos of other things I've made for people as well.


  1. Wow!! That's amazing! I love the look of quilling, don't quite understand how it's done, it looks difficult, but wonderful!

  2. Very nice work. I'd love to see more.

  3. I've given everything I've made away without taking photos. At the moment I'm busy with the jewellery, but eventually I'll do some more quilling again.
