The Art of Quilling

I saw this when I googled for "paper strips". Lovely, isn't it? Festive!

The craft is called Quilling. Strips of paper are wound around a quill (originally), to create beautiful filigree-like patterns. I've read that this craft has been around since the Renaissance period.

Rolling paper may sound easy but I think the challenge is in keeping each piece of paper in position while you assemble the design and glue them together. Maybe quillers use pins and a cork board. I should try this sometime.
