OVERVIEW
Celebrate the season with 30 colorful and charming paper-quilling projects for Christmas decorations, ornaments, gift tags, greeting cards, and more.
 
Christmas is the perfect time to brighten your home and delight friends and family with handmade gifts and decorations. In these 30 beautiful holiday-themed quilling projects, Alli Bartkowski explains how to roll, shape, and glue paper strips into eye-catching framed art, a handsome nutcracker figurine, a lovely snowflake ornament, colorful jewelry, and more. Each project is designed for a specific skill level, and you’ll find a comprehensive introduction and step-by-step photos of the essential techniques needed to create basic shapes, elegant typography, and dazzling linear art.
PRAISE
“Remember sitting in class, aimlessly rolling paper around a pen or pencil? That’s the foundation of quilling, a popular paper craft with origins in Renaissance-era Europe that has evolved into a wide breadth of fashionable projects—thanks, in part, to Bartkowski’s cache of how-to’s (Quilled Flowers, 2012; Quilled Mandalas, 2018). She’s thorough, covering basics in photographic and narrative detail, from the more unusual tools needed (like a crimper and curling coach) to the step-by-step tutorials on such shapes as the crescent and the triangle. Since this volume celebrates Christmas, readers will expect projects, yet the actual designs are rather startling, in a delightful way: a "can’t believe it’s paper" nutcracker; an intricate manger scene; a set of Christmas lights in jewelry; and the pièce de résistance, a Christmas-tree centerpiece. Categorized as home decor, ornaments and stocking stuffers, or greeting cards and gift
packaging, each pattern features level of difficulty, shapes, techniques, dimensions, instructions, and photographs and diagrams. An even better incentive? Quick-to-make and inexpensive gifts just in time for the holidays.” —Booklist
