For centuries crafters have enjoyed the relaxing hobby of quilling – assembling rolled or shaped strips of paper to create vibrant, colourful artworks. Quilling is an inexpensive, absorbing pastime that can be readily picked up and put down, slotting effortlessly into busy lives and offering moments of calm, meditative enjoyment. In this inspiring, easy-to-follow book, the traditional papercraft is given a fun and refreshing update with 20 modern, vibrant projects to make. 

Following the successes of her previous books, Quilling and Quilling Art, paper artist Sena Runa shares the secrets of how to make the most amazing flower designs. Catering for all levels of ability, novices will discover all the information they need to get started, plus a range of simple yet effective projects, while experienced papercrafters will enjoy the challenge of more intricate designs.

Using Sena’s signature subtle gradations of colour and pops of bright, sunny tones, once framed they create gorgeous artwork for the home. They can also be used to decorate greetings cards, making unique and thoughtful gifts.

About the author:

Turkish born Sena Runa discovered her love of paper quilling a few years ago and now devotes all her time to it. She has enjoyed developing her own particular style and approach, using bright pops of color or graduating shades. The result is fun, fresh and modern.

In my opinion:

To be honest, I never heard of quilling till I was asked to review this book, Quilling Flowers. And I believe I found another hobby that I would excel at. Let's be honest, I love to create so this book was perfect for me. Also, quilling doesn't cost a lot so that is a bonus.

Did you know that quilling dates back to the Renaissance period? They used the technique to save money. I would have loved to see that.

There are 20 flowers to create in this book. And there are a variety of techniques that Sena Runa used to make the flowers look realistic. My favorite flower is a carnation so I was excited when I saw that it was the first flower. The photos and step-by-step instructions were outstanding. I'm a visual learner so that was very important to me. Also, she included all the templates you will need to make all twenty flowers. Some of the flowers are also known as birth flowers so these projects would make great gifts. I highly recommend this book to try out quilling flowers. It is quite satisfying to create something beautiful!
