Parchment Craft has been predominately used in the making of cards (religious devotional cards, greeting cards and gift cards) but the techniques are being applied to related items such as bookmarks and picture frames as well as 3-dimensional sculptural paper projects such as ornaments and boxes.
Quilling is the art of
creating decorative designs from thin strips of curled paper. This
age-old art of
paper quilling has been
around since Renaissance which dates back to about 3 to 4 centuries
during the time when the nuns used small edges trimmed from the
Bible pages to create simple but beautiful form of artistry.
Using simple tools, long strips of paper are tightly wound and released to form complicated and complex shapes. This form of art was also known as "Paper Filligree".
Because of how the scrapped of paper were wrapped around goose quilles to create "coiled shapes", it was later known as "Quilling".
