Paper Quilling

This is paper quilling:

I learned how to quill in Girl Guides. I believe that we made Christmas gift tags displaying quilled snow flakes. I remember quilling every now and then as a child - mostly flowers, birds, and bunnies. Some things don't change; this is a card that I made last week.

I found this flower in my quilling supplies. I have no idea when I made it. Could be twenty years old (!). I put together a card to display it, and I will send it as a thank you for a set of towels that we received as a housewarming present.

This is what my desk looks like when I am quilling. Tacky Glue is my childhood. I love that the bottle has hardly changed in all my crafting years. Sourcing quilling paper is somewhat of a challenge these days. I found a lady that sells it out of her home here in Prince George, but she lives way off in the countryside so I may resort to ordering it online.

And this is what you use to quill. Expert quillers simply use something like a hat pin, as a finer tool results in neater results. I'm happy to use this wooden dinosaur.
