Paper Quilling Cards

Updated on September 14, 2014

Paper Quilled Greeting Cards Designs

Paper quilling is considered to be a lost renaissance art that is rarely commercialized. About 4 years ago I was simply amazed when an vendor approached me with a small selection of greeting cards. With a small square footage in my store and a theme that consists of home goods and kitchen items I was initially resistant to take a look at the cards and wanted to quickly rush the appointment and quickly place my Jason coasters and placemats order, but as my rep insisted I took a quick peak! Once I saw them I simply fell in love. The detail in this cards is unlike any other greeting cards that I have seen in any store and they are simply a form of art sold at great retail prices. Well I decided to take a leap and placed a huge order and my customers really are in love with them and I continue to re-stock with amazing new designs. I invite you to learn a little bit more about how these artform was created and I invite you to check out a variety of quilling art greeting cards at miximports stores. Hope you enjoy this page and the beauty and detail in each single card and please come back as I will showcasing new designs quite often.

Paper quilling curiosity!

Paper quilling is a very time consuming art. Because of that reason it is really hard to find ready made paper quilling cards for sale at regular stores.

History of Paper Quilling

History of paper quilling:

What is paper quilling? Paper quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of thin strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and then glued together to create decorative designs that resembles shapes. The paper is wound around a quill to create a coil shape. The paper coils are then glued at the tip to create a 3 dimensional design and arranged to form flowers, leaves, characters and various ornamental patterns.

The name Quilling is derived from the feather quill, on which the strips of paper were originally rolled to form the coil shapes. Paper Quilling is an ancient art and it first originated in china and it seems to be connected with the invention of paper around 105 AD. Quilling as an art form came of age over five hundred years ago and became very popular then. During the Renaissance, French and Italian nuns and monks used quilling to decorate book covers and religious items. The paper most commonly used was strips of paper trimmed from the gilded edges of books. These gilded paper strips were then rolled to create the quilled shapes. Quilling often imitated the original ironwork of the day and with time became more scarce as other types of less time consuming art forms.

In the 18th century, quilling became again very popular in Europe where "ladies of leisure" practiced the art. Quilling also spread to the Americas and there are a few examples from Colonial times. However with the industrialization and the invention of printed books and cards the Paper quilling art became a hobby amongst few. Today, quilling is seeing resurgence in popularity. The craft has become increasingly popular due to the low cost of the basic material the paper and glue, that is required to make the shapes. It is used to decorate wedding invitations, birth announcements, greeting cards, scrapbook pages, and more, however rarely industrialized since it is still a very time consuming art.

Given the intense detail of the art and the fact that creating paper quilling items takes many labor hours this type of art is rarely commercialized and you cannot find ready made pieces available to buy, mostly tools, kits and supplies. As a store owner always looking for unique thinks I was very happy to find a great source for amazing greeting cards handcrafted using the paper quilling technique and I hope you enjoy checking them out. Do not forget to grab a few as they are very unique and not only can be used as greeting card but they can also be framed as well and used as an art piece.

Handcrafted by Artisans. How Renaissance quilling cards are made

This amazing line of paper quilled greeting cards are designed using the highest quality paper products and handcrafted by artists and artisans in vietnam. The paper is cut into 1/16 inch thin slices of paper and then each single line of paper is rolled into coils, shaped and glued to form different designs. These smaller coil designs are then assembled together and glued to create a new larger figure, design, item, or shape. What is unique to the process is that the paper is not laid flat but is professionally glued and placed on its end to give the cards a 3 dimensional effect. This allows the design to obtain an artistic and handcrafted look that is unique and simply so beautiful..

      @anonymous: Dear Steisha,

      Sadly I did not craft all these cards but I do think they were made with 17" quilling paper as each little quill is very dense! I have seen work done iwith 8" strips and it seams that the curls are a little looser.

    • profile image

      anonymous 6 years ago

      Hi!

      The paper quilling cards and designs are simply fantastic! I would like to know whether you used 8" or 17" quilling paper length. All the best!

Bu I often give this cards as little gift to friends and family members and they simply love them. Thank you very much for stopping by and checking them out. I will have to learn a little more about 3d quilling as it sounds very interesting.

      What a nice craft! My friend's mother makes quilled cards. I've always wondered how to do it.

      @capriliz lm: It is so true. It is a very time consuming art that is why it is so hard to find ready made cards that can be commercialized. i am so happy to have found these as they are so stunning. That is why i had to share them with the Squidoo community!

      What a beautiful craft! The artwork and detail are amazing. I can't imagine the patience it must take to produce these quilling cards. I had to follow a few over to your site to see the level of detail. So many great designs and patterns to choose from!
