Paper Quilling Figure by Shreya Abbi

Hello Creative People,
I am back again on Prika’s blog sharing one of my recent quilling work and also some more details about quilling technique and tool used.
Paper quilling is also known as paper filigree. It is based on the technique of rolling narrow strips of paper into coils which are then arranged to form a decorative pattern.

Paper quilling is easy to learn. The best thing about it is that you only need a few items to get started with this great craft activity. If you enjoy doing hand made paper crafts and making your own creative handicrafts but have never done paper quilling before, I am sure you should give it a try once!
Supplies Used:
#Quilling paper
You can find strips of quilling paper in craft stores, they usually come in many different colours and have widths of 3mm to 5mm.
#Quilling Tool
This is usually available in craft stores where you can find quilling paper. The quilling tool is used to wind the strips of paper into a coil. If you do not have a quilling tool, you can also use a toothpick, needle or a satay stick. The quilling tool can make quilling a lot easier if you are a beginner.
#Craft glue
Any PVA glue or transparent glue for paper craft can be used.
You will need this for applying the glue onto the quilling paper.
Here is some more close up pictures of my work:

You will need a bit of practice before the coils turn out looking perfect. Try to make coils with different shapes and colours. When you have made enough coils, arrange them on a sheet of drawing paper to form a pattern or any design you have in mind. If you are happy with the pattern and would like to show it to your family and friends or have your masterpiece displayed, apply a little glue to the coils to make them stick onto the drawing paper. Let the glue dry before displaying your quilled design.
Once you have mastered the basic techniques of paper quilling, you will have hours of creative fun producing beautiful quilling designs and patterns.
Happy Quilling!
Thanks and I hope you like my project.
