Quilling Creations: Flora & Fauna
by Cecilia Louie
Quilling Creations: Flora & Fauna, is more than a book. Housed inside an attractive re-usable box, this crafting kit by “graphic designer by day and avid paper crafter by night” Cecelia Louie, includes a concise book of instructions with helpful photos, a quilling pen, and tons of ready-to-quill paper strips.
A List Of What You’ll Need and Techniques and Basic Shapes get you started. Once you’ve mastered the basic shapes, you’ll learn how to create ten more complex projects including mushrooms, ladybugs, leaves, foxes and even a clematis! There are also ideas for creating your own pieces.
This kit is a great gift idea for anyone with patience and a little finesse. My attempts at creating even basic shapes was frustrating, but I think that was more due to my own impatience than any problem with the concept. The uses for these delightful creations are endless, from greeting cards to festive banners to classroom decorations, and on and on…
Quilling Creations: Flora & Fauna, published by becker&mayer! books, an imprint of The Quarto Group, is $18.99 US and $24.99 CAN and available at major retailers.
