Quilling is the art of rolled, shaped, and glued paper that results in creating a unified, decorative design. The art of quilling has been around for centuries, with a remarkably varied historical background spanning across continents. 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 trimmed from books 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. They would adorn objects such as picture frames, baskets, and jewelry boxes. Today, quilling is resurfacing again as a more accessible, affordable hobby for people of every age and background.
