The act of paper quilling

The act of paper quilling is a field of art that must be treated with a severe amount of precaution. The amount of patience and intricacy that a good design demands is overwhelming.

I tried my hand in this particular craft during my Advanced Level years. It appealed to me as a comfortable way to release my stress and regain a sense of energy. For those of you who aren’t quite familiar in this craft; firstly, thin strips of colored paper are assembled and rolled into a coil, pinching them to form a shape and afterwards, gluing the shapes together to form a complete design. I also make use of a paper quilling tool; something that comes in handy in large designs.

As the dawn fades into the dusk and my brain runs stale at the digestion of my study material, this craft served me as a space in which I could be at peace with myself. It gave me a sense of meaning; something to sustain me through my fretful hours; an act to be proud of and never to regret.

Many hours have I dedicated in this particular artistry and those many hours are the very moments I will never regret. Paper quilling is something for which I share a great amount of respect for.
Something that initiated as a stress-releasing hobby has now become a part-time business of mine. Many of my friends and family have requested for a purchase of my work and I figured that there might be more people out there who might be interested in my craft and thereby would like to buy it.

If you, who is reading this is interested in my work and might like to make a purchase, please don’t hesitate to find me on Instagram @craftcafey
