In my last post on adding quilling paper to wreaths, I mentioned that I was trying to find the perfect use for some eucalyptus and lavender stems that I had rolled.
That got me thinking of all the different types of quilling paper arts that I’ve been inspired by over the years.
I jotted down some ideas of ways that I’ve seen or used quilling, and I came up with quite a number of them!
So this week, I’m sharing my list of 30 ways to decorate with quilling.
Most commonly, paper crafters use quilling to add design to paper goods.
Some common uses are:
- Note Cards
- Thank You Notes
- Place Cards
- Gift Tags ~ Try these snowflake tags!
- Wedding Certificates
- Gift Wrap Embellishments ~ I like to tuck them into ribbons or tie them to gift bags!
Think about fancying up your office supplies like:
- Journal Covers
- Paper Clips
