Paper quilling, also called paper filigree, is a papercraft that has been popular since the 15th century. This paper art has experienced a resurgence in popularity during the last couple of years.
You can find paper quilling incorporated into scrapbooking, cardmaking, monograms, paper flowers, jewelry and even into pieces of wall art. It is incredible how you can make complicated shapes and patterns from simple paper strips and glue!
