Quilling or paper filigree is the art of rolling thin strips of paper into different shapes and using the shapes to form designs. Quilling has been around since the Renaissance age, but I was only introduced to it during a trip to Sydney more than 10 years ago.
The tools needed for this craft are very basic. Paper strips, specially designed tool for winding the strip of paper around, and glue are basically all you need to get started. Paper comes in many different colors and width. The strips of paper are usually cut anywhere from 1/8" to 1" wide with 1/8" being the standard.
