Being a fan of paper art, I was blown away when I found out about paper quilling designs earlier today. This art focuses on paper quilling or paper filigree. It involves rolling, cutting, coloring and gluing paper strips together. The end result must be a decorative paper artwork.
The best thing about paper quilling is that you don’t really need any fancy tools become a top level artist. That is one of the reasons that incredible quilling designs are emerging on the internet from all corners of the globe.
