Quilling Cards is the art of rolling, coiling and shaping small strips of paper to create a pattern or design. It dates back hundreds of years to Egyptian times. According to some sources nuns and monks would roll the gold tipped paper remnants, left behind after the book-making process, and would use them to adorn various religious artifacts. This was a cheaper alternative to gold filigree. In later years the art of quilling was a favorite relaxing activity for European ladies. The term quilling got its name from the use of bird feathers with which to coil the paper.
Quilling found its way to America with the pilgrims and today it is still used throughout the world.
