Jul 05 People have been quilling since ancient times, and in the past few years this wonderful old craft has enjoyed something of a revival. Relatively cheap to do, absorbing and suitable for most ages here is a book showing how it can be used to decorate greetings cards. I own quite a few books on quilling, and most of them fail to inspire me. Not this one though - real imagination is at work in here and ordinary subjects are somehow transformed. You don't need many tools or materials to do quilling, and the author has wisely shown this, and how to do a lot with a little. Flowers in pots, teddy bears and little dolls are normally not my favorite subjects, but here are some ideas for making them really come to life that had me - dyed-in-the-wool teddy hater - reaching for my paper strips. There is a verve and joy to these designs and a clever use of color that makes them sing (have a look for yourself). Large photographs make construction of some quite advanced ideas a breeze, and I love the floral arbors, unusual flower fairies and rabbit in a hat. I think you need to see this to appreciate it, but it is well worth buying. Myshelf.com Issue 13, Sep 05 From making your first basic coil, to creating intricate greeting cards, this book guides you through the quilling process effortlessly. Handy tips provide useful advice to get you started and progress quickly. A nice balance is struck between providing traditional and original designs...Beautifully set out and accompanied by clear images and great ideas, this book is a perfect addition to both the experienced and novice quiller's bookshelf. Papercraft Inspirations Sept 06 ...is a great introduction, which shows you what you need and basic techniques, as well as projects to practice with. Crafts Beautiful
