Quilling Gift Guide - A shopping list for the quilling crafter who has everything! ThePaperyCraftery.com

It’s that time of year again!

That time when everyone starts racking their brains about what presents to buy for all their loved ones this holiday season. 

I thought I’d share a few thoughts of my own about the perfect gifts for fellow fans of one of my favorite hobbies!

I can’t believe that I never made one before!

It can be hard for friends and families of crafters to buy presents because we are known for always picking up new tools and supplies.

But here is a quilling gift guide full of fun and useful gifts that you can share with your loved ones when they’re asking about … or just keep it as a wish list for yourself!

Tips for Using Metallic Quilling Paper ~ Sparkly and shiny, metallic paper can add some wow to your quilling! www.ThePaperyCraftery.com

Metallic paper

Most quillers have tons of paper strips and are probably getting more all the time. But quilling strips with a shiny, metallic edge are a little harder to come by and can bring crafts to another level entirely.

For more information, read this post with tips on using metallic quilling paper and a list of my favorite shades.

Pretty quilling tools

I’ve been quilling with a plain wooden tool for years, and they work just fine. But I’d love to see this set by Juya in my tool caddy.

They come in pale pink, too!

Work lamp

Quilling all those tiny paper strips can start to strain the eyes after a while. I have an adjustable work lamp like this one and it’s made all the difference.

Cutting mat

I know I’ve written about it before, but I really do get a lot of use out of the work mat that I have on my craft table. It’s so convenient to be able to measure out my paper strips at a glance. No more searching for a ruler!

Vintage-inspired scissors 

Even though quillers don’t use scissors all that often, a fancy pair can pretty-up any craft zone.

Even if they’re not technically antiques, a unique pair of scissors will absolutely bring a sense of style to any crafter’s tools.

Savvy slotted tool

One of the complaints I hear often is how much quilling can cause wrist pain. I’ve been using the Savvy Slotted Tool by Quilled Creations quite a bit for the last year and I’ve noticed I’ve been getting some relief!

Glue assortment 

There are times when one type of glue just won’t do. How about picking up a variety and making a little glue gift basket. It might sound a little goofy, but it would be really thoughtful to a quilling artist!

Cork board 

A good, solid cork board can be a useful foundation to build quilling projects on. I have 4, but I could always use a few more.

I prefer this kind of board, but I don’t use the white plastic part. But if you flip it over, the back is a solid, sturdy piece of cork. Pin a sheet of waxed paper down and you’re ready to go!

Storage box

There are many ways to store quilling paper. One of the ways I corralled my paper strips is to store them in a few sturdy boxes. I organize them by color so I can easily find what shade I need in an instant.


Quillers need a place to draw out their brilliant designs or make notes on the length of the strips they’re using. Sketchbooks don’t have to be anything expensive or fancy, but unlined pages might be more helpful.

I hope this quilling gift guide helps find the perfect present for the craft-lover who already has everything!
