Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is manipulated to create shapes to design and decorate greetings cards, pictures, boxes, eggs, jewelry, mobiles etc. There are advanced techniques and different sized paper that are used to create 3D miniatures, abstract art, and quilled flowers among many things. Quilling often imitated the original ironwork of the day.
