I have been quilling for 43 years. I took one quilling class at a local craft store and I fell in love with this form of art. I made quilled items from kits that were readily available at that time. The items I made went to friends and family until someone asked me to be in their boutique. I realized that I could make a little money from this hobby that I loved. Thus Paper Petites was born in 1983….34 years ago.
The items that I make are personally designed and created three dimensional, not made from pre-designed kits. I offer a new Christmas tree ornament every year plus a variety of framed items and floral pieces. I love gardening and it is definitely apparent in my quilling scenes.
My work may be tedious at times-cutting, curling, gluing tiny pieces of special weight quilling paper…1/16”, 1/8”, 1/4” in width into three imensional designs. However,
the handmade finished pieces and the ability to share them and my craft with others is very rewarding. I have many loyal customers who have become dear friends!
