I loved that this had a video with it because it made it so much easier to understand the directions!

This project is easy and fun to make with the kids. Paper quilling tools are not easy to find in my area. So I use other things as replacement. I use a circle ruler instead of a quilling board, and a tooth pick instead of a quilling tool. They both work just fine.

This video was so much fun to watch! I've never seen paper quilling in action before, so I learned a lot.
