When we talk about crafts with paper, for many people this may sound like something very simple and without much value, but the result is so incredible that many people don't even believe that the material used in this type of production is just a few small pieces of colored paper.
Legend has it that quilling was created by nuns in Europe in the mid-16th century, they used it for a single foundation, decorating reliquaries and sacred engravings. Just in the 18th century the technique became popular in England, a great curiosity is that this name was given inspired by the rolls being made from geese feathers.
The quilling are crafts made with strips of paper in rolls of different sizes and shapes and after joining one by one they form impressive designs! Over the years, this art has been forgotten and now it is winning the hearts of many artisans again.
The good side of working with this type of technique is that to start, you don't necessarily need to have that much skill, you just need to watch some tutorials with the step by step and in addition some of their materials cost almost nothing, as is the case with color papers set plus, white glue, toothpick and not least some molds that will make your work much easier.
