Paper Filigree Snowflakes and Designs for the Winter Season
Paper filigree, or quilling, is the art of creating designs with narrow strips of paper. It is believed to have originated during the Renaissance, when French and Italian nuns used bird quills to roll strips of paper to decorate religious items, mimicking the iron filigree work of the time.

The shaped paper coils can be arranged to form delicate snowflakes, snowmen, sprigs of holly or wreaths to decorate your home, use in scrapbook pages or make cards and gift tags for the upcoming holidays. Please bring scissors, tweezers and a ruler with you to class. Course fee includes a $7 materials fee.
