Quilling is a traditional papercraft that has been popular for many years. This delightful book provides 20 easy yet imaginative designs covering a range of animals such as cats, dogs, sheep, a hippopotamus, a fox, giraffes and an alpaca, and includes three-dimensional designs. The projects are cute and whimsical, and quick to make. They will appeal to experienced quillers looking for new ideas and inspiration, as well as beginners who wish to take up this delightful craft. The completed designs can be used to decorate greetings cards, picture frames, invitations, and many other stationery and household items.
As the popularity of quilling has surged in recent years, the sold out (previous) edition will be published once again with a new title, Quilled Animals, and cover image (previously it featured an alpaca). Experienced quillers in search of fresh ideas will find an adorable menagerie of paper patterns within the 48 pages. Each design includes fun details and Diane’s completed projects are examples of perfect quilling. She shows how to add dimension by layering elements, with Miss Hippo’s flower, eye, and skirt, and the wings, head, legs, and curly tail of the super-cute flying pigs. Two of Diane Boden’s previous titles are Beautiful Quilling Step-by Step and Miniature Quilling. Her quilled chocolates have proven to be extremely popular in the quilling world… wouldn’t you be tempted to pop one in your mouth? They’re incredibly realistic!
