Quilling--also known as paper filigree or scroll work--is the art of rolling very thin strips of paper into elegant shapes, turning them into beautiful designs, and then gluing them onto a base for display. This new guide from the prolific Marie Browning presents a range of techniques, both traditional and new, that will delight and intrigue crafters. In addition to offering 28 unique shapes, it introduces some contemporary quilling possibilities such as husking, fringing, crimping and sculpting. Even beginners will enjoy creating simple but very attractive greeting cards and measuring their progress on more involved projects, including home decor items (like a Wedding Tin and Framed Botanicals) and beautiful jewelry.
