The Basic tips to make Paper Quilling parts
①Slide a quilling paper strip into a slot of the quilling bar and leave the edge of the strip for about 0.5mm, then start rolling.
②Roll tightly for a few times, then roll up smoothly to the end using the thumbnail as a guide to prevent backlashes.
Roll tightly at the end of the strip then slide the roll from the bar. Leave the strip at a flat space till the Circle gets loose. Adjust shapes and glue the tip of the rolled quilling strips.
Other various shapes, such as Tear Drop and Leaf, are easy to arrange based on Loose Circle.
Roll tightly and glue the end of the strip firmly with your fingertips. After dried, pull out the shapes out of the bar with your nails, then gently flatten the circles with the bottom of the bar.
History of “Paper Quilling”
During the Renaissance, French and Italian nuns and monks used paper quilling or paper filigree to decorate book covers and religious items. The paper most commonly used was strips of paper trimmed from the gilded edges of books. These gilded paper strips were then rolled to create the quilled shapes.
In the 18th century, paper quilling became popular in Europe where gentle ladies of quality ("ladies of leisure") practiced the art. It was one of the few things ladies could do that was thought not too taxing for their minds or gentle dispositions. Paper Quilling also spread to the Americas and there are a few examples from Colonial times.
