Something about Paper Quilling

Hi Friends,

Today I am going to tell you a little about the history of paper Filigree or Paper Quilling as we popularly call it. Knowing the creativeness of human nature, it seems likely that the art of rolling, folding, crimping and shaping paper strips would occur fairly quickly after the invention of paper....The earliest piece of preserved paper filigree pictured by [Paula's] sources (Florian Papp and Christy/Tracy ) was created in the 1600’s, but Christy/Tracy also noted references to pre-17th century work given in books written in the 1800’s. ---Used with permission from Paula Bauer at Gem State Quilling. 

You can read more about the history of paper quilling at the Gem State Quilling website. It is the best article of the history of paper quilling I have read to date. And, if you're into paper quilling like me, it's really quite interesting. 

Paula also has some fun quilling trivia on her website. Did you know that the Bronte sisters were quillers? Very cool..





Quilling Shapes

 These are the basic shapes and with the help of    these shapes you can learn to Quill, fold these with your fingers/ or with the quilling pen, what ever you decide to use the end result will be loved by all.

I know that these are very common for people who are into Art n' Craft but I want to tell my new friends n' followers ..how n' what you'll need to make your setup for Paper Quilling corner. 

Let me tell you one thing that all this takes lots of time and most importantly "MONEY".I am doing crafts from more that 5 years and I am yet not even half  way. But I am enjoying every bit of it. Its very relaxing and above all fun to learn and teach.

Basic Quilling Tools


You will need a quilling pen, paper quilling colorful strips, some good quality glue, a good quality scissors,this is basic but if u are willing to spend some more then this is what you'll need to make your work even more neat...this is called a Quilling fringer (its for about 2450/-)  and a quilling board and lots of imagination.
