What is Paper Quilling? : Quilling or paper filigree is the art of creating designs with narrow strips of paper that have been wound around a quill or quilling tool to create a basic shape. The basic shapes are glued together and arranged to form all kinds of creative and interesting designs. Nearly all of quilling is done with just a few variations of basic rolls and scrolls, so it is very easy to start quilling and creating your own piece of crafts/art.

Starting to learn paper quilling is not difficult. Popular shapes created from paper coils include flowers, leaves, ornate scrolls and abstract patterns.
