Quilling is an art form that involves the use of paper strips that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create a decorative design. The paper is wound around a quill to create the basic paper shape, hence the name quilling.
Needless to say, I fell in love with it. I started with 1 dimensional flowers and bugs, but soon found a 3 dimensional bride and groom kit which I made for my niece who recently got married. From there I made acorns and pumpkins and mice and anything I could think of. I tried to make a reindeer for Christmas but its head reminded me more of a turkey which gave me the idea to make a turkey. The turkey was lonely so I made a pair of Pilgrims. I just kept rolling and shaping until I came up with a design I liked.
