Note From the Editor:

This paper quilling tutorial provides you with the basic overview of paper quilling and gives you quilling ideas that you can use for all sorts of paper crafting. Here at AllFreePaperCrafts, we think quilling is one of the most versatile crafting skills that someone can master.

Besides card making ideas and paper jewelry, you can use quilling paper to design shapes to create or embellish decorative accessory or gift boxes or bags. You can use quilling ideas to create stunning works of art, such as a filigree wall clock or frame, or a 3D art piece.

For sturdier projects like those, toilet paper rolls can actually be cut into strips to replace traditional quilling paper. Once spray painted, you'd never guess the material.

Check out some of the paper quilling ideas here and see what else you can come up with. It's an incredible papercraft to try and your skills can only increase as you create more and more.

That's a great idea Mistress of All Evil il. Quilling would be lovely to do while we're inside during the summer and it's too warm to have a project like crochet or knitting across laps! This Christmas ornament will have us practicing our basic quilling shapes until we have them down in no time at all. I bet after we've made several of these we might be able to design some different ornaments with the basic shapes too!

I've always liked the look of quilling, but I don't think I realized just how involved the whole process is. This looks like something to try out over the summer when the summer heat has me cowering indoors with nothing to do but watch Netflix.

Paper quilling is a fun and easy paper craft. My students had so much fun learning and making various shapes out of paper. However, the quilling tools are not easy to find in my city. So, providing quilling tools for 10-15 students was a hard job. Then I tried to use a toothpick instead. It worked just fine )

Awesome! I have also tried using various cylindrical objects as quilling tools. Toothpicks are one of the best alternatives. Thanks for sharing! - Krista, editor, AllFreePaperCrafts

I have never heard of paper quilling, but now I can't wait to give it a try. The crafting possibilities are endless!

Love this tutorial for shipping papers. I can see this being my new papercrafting hobbies. Thank-you.

Hi safehaven! AllFreePaperCrafts does not sell quilling books or Cuttlebug dies, but our sister site, does indeed! I hope you find this answer helpful, and happy paper crafting!
