Teacher’s Day Card Ideas
Teacher’s day is round the corner and my daughter is in primary school. She likes to prepare card at home and give to her teachers. This time she was introduced to paper quilling and wanted to prepare cards with them.
Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is rolled, looped, curled, twisted and otherwise manipulated to create shapes which make up designs to decorate greetings cards, pictures, boxes, eggs, and to make models, jewellery, mobiles etc. The most popular and versatile technique is that of rolling. The paper strip is rolled in fingers or using a tool. The coil is then released and then glued at the tip and then shaped. These shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns (From Wikipedia here).
