Quilling

Of the many things I've inherited from my grandmother, I've always been rather fond of these little pieces. The quintessential 1970s owl.


And the three little panels of intricate flowers. Forgive me, they are a bit dusty, but I'm not sure how to dust them without damaging those delicate little curls of paper.


This type of craft is known as paper filigree, or quilling. A neat little hobby, if you've the patience.

You can use a hair dryer to "blow" the dust off your quilling, or use a very soft bristle paint brush.
