Paper Quilling (115th new thing)
July 27, 2011 § Leave a comment
On Day One Hundred Fifteen, I turning to a crafting technique I had recently discovered and wanted to try- Paper quilling, or paper filigree. The designs I had seen online were fragile and incredibly intricate, but from looking up tutorials it didn’t seem too difficult. Mostly just time-consuming.
So I popped in Black Swan on DVD, opened a bottle of wine and set myself up in the living room with thin strips of paper, a skewer, Elmer’s glue, and toothpicks. I was ready to partake in this ancient paper art.
It took watching Black Swan and a couple of episodes of Toddlers and Tiaras for me to finish my creation. I’m not sure what it is besides a bunch of paper swirls, but the process was very therapeutic.
