Quilling is a process, which involves using strips of paper to create decorative items. Coloured paper strips are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create the designs. Paper pieces are adroitly arranged in different ways like rolling, twisting, curling, looping, etc., to create various shapes, which shape up elegant designs. Like this, one can create different styles of magnificent bangles from home and can even sell the same within the friend circle or in the market itself. These products are widely accepted for their lustre, smooth curves, durability, attractive designs, comfort in wearing, and unique appearance. You will be able to find a variety of styles, which are sold at a low cost in jewellery shops or online markets.
Paper quilling is not a difficult task; it's pretty simple and fun. However, this art requires a lot of patience and time. Lightweight and colourful designs have become popular among DIY bangles. You can use both the larger thick strips and narrow strips of paper for quilling. Suppose you are planning to quill on your own. In that case, you need to get some essentials like coloured paper strips, scissors, glue, ruler, a tape for measuring the wrist size, quilling needle (if available), tweezers (they prevent the paper from unravelling), etc. The quilling needle helps in making small centres in the scrolls, and it also guides easy rolling. You must use good quality paper to get the best output. To get a tight curl, you can use a paper ranking between 80 gsm and 100 gsm, and for loose curls, try the papers ranking between 120 gsm and 170 gsm.
