I used to make these out of old magazine pages and a home made quilling tool. These are just as pretty as the smaller ones I made, and maybe a little more colorful! They're not hard to do at all and can be used for a lot of things. If you're ambitious enough you can make a beaded curtain from them. I always thought I'd like to do that.

Such a cool idea. It's like a thrifty paper quilling craft!
