There are lots of instructions on the internet if you'd like to try it. Quilling is fun, and it's a really portable craft, too! The supplies are minimal, lightweight, and take up very little space.
I am the lucky recipient of a snowflake, as was my girlfriend. Louise was so gracious to bring them to us when she stopped by to tour our campers earlier this fall! They're even lovelier in person.
Thanks again, Louise
Come to think of it, my granddaughters are visiting us this weekend, and I think that this might be a nice little craft project for us all.
