Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Bartkowski's [Paper Quilling for the First Time] first quilling project was a flower. The art of coiling, rolling, and shaping paper strips lends itself to flower designs. This collection of projects showcases ways to embellish a variety of decorative items and accessories with quilled flowers. Getting started is easy: only a few supplies are needed, and Bartkowski provides information on all of the basics of forming and shaping paper into floral designs. VERDICT Quilling books are fairly rare, and this is a nice one.
Many of the projects would also make attractive wedding crafts--always a popular category." --Library Journal
