Breathing new life into
a century old art form...
I had recently given birth to my daughter and needed to find something to fill my quiet, creative time while she napped. I began folding paper cranes — thousands of them — but wasn’t really sure what I was going to use them for. One day I had an idea to add my leftover beads and turn them into mobiles. My passion for paper crafts sort of snowballed from there.
While on Facebook one afternoon, an advertisement for a quilling kit caught my eye. Although I wasn’t entirely sure what the craft entailed, my birthday was right around the corner, and I shared the gift idea with my husband. A few days later, even though I may not have realized it at the time, my destiny was delivered to my doorstep.
I look at the world in a different way now — it’s all about shapes. I’ll come upon a leaf or a sailboat floating in the water and think to myself, ‘I can quill that.’

Fermentum aliquet vitae odio viverra
Eget mi nulla venenatis
Cursus blandit eget duis proin
Faucibus id amet egestas nullam eget
Ridiculus pellentesque arcu
In addition to quilling custom orders, Miranda’s artwork can also be found at the Krasl Art Center and various local craft fairs and artisan markets.
