Quilling 101

Craft & Design Paper Crafts

Craft Experts has a great guide on the basics of quilling. Quilling is the art of rolling and gluing thin strips of paper into different shapes. It’s a fun way to make your own art and use up some of your recycled magazines or paper scraps. The Craft Expert site also is a great resource for lots of projects! Link.

    There are many mistakes in your article. Quilling was created to mimic Metal Filigree which is not made from wire but rather metal (like that used in gates and such) hence the name Paper Filigree.

    Items can be 2 dimensional (the most common), 3 dimensional, a technique called dimensional quilling (which uses the stacking of shaped coils to trick the eye into seeing 3D) and others. Quilling strips range from 1/16 inch all the way up to 1 inch and larger widths. What you are quilling determines the width of your quilling strips. The best paper to use in quilling is 20 to 25 pound paper. If you’re a beginner you’ll want to use pre-cut papers. You also don’t want to use just any type of glue. You’ll want to use a glue that dries quickly and is clear when dried.

    There are other mistakes but I simply don’t have time to point them all out. Those wanting to learn more about quilling might want to contact one of the quilling guilds located around the world or join an online quilling group like quillers (at yahoo groups). I’ve been quilling for over 50 years.
