DIVAn exquisite paper art book featuring quilling techniques for cards and gifts.

With a focus on simple, elegant projects, the The Art of Paper Quilling offers paper crafters a complete technique guide along with step-by-step project ideas for making beautiful framed pieces, cards, gifts, and more. The designs are all built upon simple rolled coils of paper that when grouped together, form intricate flowers, graceful butterflies, and delicate scrollwork.

Claire Sun-ok Choi is an expert paper artist who has influenced the revival of this fanciful art form with her inspiring exhibits and internationally known books.
