Add pizzazz to picture frames, notebooks, vases, boxes, bags, or any everyday item that could use a decorative touch. The centuries-old craft of quilling involves rolling, shaping, and gluing strips of paper into ornamental designs. It’s easy to learn, and this guide is bursting with simple, step-by-step instructions and colorful illustrations that will get you started and send you on your way with a wealth of new possibilities.
From quick and easy individual motifs to larger, more elaborate combinations, here are more than 100 designs with countless applications. Quilling requires very little equipment and few materials — just an inexpensive investment in a manual quilling tool, glue, and paper. With a little practice, you’ll master the techniques of coiling, pinching, fringing, weaving, and husking. Then you’ll be able to add a personal touch to cards, gifts, and other items. In addition, the book features galleries of imaginative ideas that will provide further inspiration and encourage you to develop new ideas and creative approaches.
I was excited to review Elizabeth Moad’s book Thrilling Quilling because I have great childhood memories of making quilling projects around the ages that my children are now. I would have loved this book when I was learning quilling. The book is full of full color photos. It is well organized layout. The book begins with an introduction and then explains about paper, equipment, and tools. Then the author explains most of the techniques used in quilling. The author then goes into detail on how to make 15 projects and gives the templates for those projects. In the back of the book is a list of suppliers and materials as well as an index. This book is an excellent sourcebook for quilling and I recommend anyone interested in paper craft to own this book.
