THE ART OF ROLLING OR COILING AND SHAPING SMALL STRIPS OF PAPER TO CREATE A PATTERN OR DESIGN, CALLED QUILLING, DATES BACK TO EGYPTIAN TIMES. SOURCES SAY THAT DURING THE RENAISSANCE, NUNS AND MONKS WOULD ROLL GOLD-GILDED PAPER REMNANTS THAT WERE TRIMMED DURING THE BOOKMAKING PROCESS AND USE THESES TO DECORATE RELIGIOUS OBJECTS. IN LATER CENTURIES, THE ART OF QUILLING BECAME A FAVOURITE PASTIME FOR EUROPEAN LADIES WHO WOULD DECORATE HOUSEHOLD ITEMS WITH THE QUILLING TECHNIQUE. THE ART FOUND ITS WAY TO AMERICA WITH THE PILGRIMS AND TODAY, QUILLING IS STILL PRACTICES THROUGHOUT THE GLOBE AS A SPECIALIZED ART FORM.
