Beginner Quilling Instructions

Beginner Quilling Instructions

For those who don’t know what Quilling is:

“Quilling or paper filigree, is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quill to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.” (from Wikipedia).

Here you have some basic quilling shapes
