What I Do

What the hell is quilling?

The art of quilling — or using strips of paper that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create decorative designs — has been around for hundreds of years. While the process itself remains unchanged, the designs have come a long way from the rolled paper used to decorate religious objects during the Renaissance.

With the necessary tools in hand, I began rolling the strips of colored paper one by one. Taking inspiration from my grandmother’s garden, the tiny paper spirals soon began to take the shape of daffodils, irises and bleeding hearts. A couple hours and a few paper cuts later, my first quilling design was planted on a 2-by-2-inch canvas and appropriately named “Betty’s Garden.”

In the months that followed, as my colored paper collection grew, so did the variety of my designs. In addition to flowers, I began quilling hummingbirds, butterflies, landscapes, the state of Michigan and more.

About Me

Talk about yourself and how awesome you are.

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.’
