Hummingbird Quilling Card
The art of quilling has been around for centuries. Originating in ancient Egypt, quilling has persevered through time, most notably making its mark throughout the eastern world. During the Renaissance, nuns and monks would roll gold-gilded paper to adorn religious objects, mimicking costly gold filigree. In later years, quilling continued to be practiced throughout Europe as it caught on as a leisurely activity for affluent women.
The name quilling comes from the origin of the art; birds’ feathers, or quills, were used to coil the strips of paper around. Today, quilling is still enjoyed throughout the world as an art form and hobby.
