Paper Quilling Mosaic Logo Awarded a Guinness World Record

Years ago I was a member of an online quilling group where I met Nandini Acharya Rao who lives in Dubai. The group disbanded eventually, but she and I have always stayed in touch via Facebook. Recently, Nandini posted photos of a huge - no, HUGE - quilling project that she was involved with in recent months.

8 Artisans Who Make Beautiful and Unique Paper Jewelry By Hand

It's been awhile since my last paper jewelry post... not because I didn't want to do another; heck no, it's one of my favorite topics! Just thought I'd better give other types of paper art and craft a fair shake, but fear not, because I've been saving up lots of beauties to showcase today.

Make a Miniature Quilled Violin or Cello - Tutorials by Kariana Leinbach

The following is a guest post by Kariana Leinbach. She is sharing it in response to your comments about her amazing quilled orchestra.

Hi, everyone! Thank you for your kind comments and interest in my orchestra model. Many of you requested a tutorial on how to make the instruments... a 3D quilled violin topped the list. As a bonus, I am including the measurements for a quilled cello (in italics), since the building processes are very similar and it was also requested by quite a few of you. If you have questions or run into  trouble with the tutorial, comment below. I would love to see the instruments you make, so please feel free to send me photos of your work via my Facebook page, Symphony in Paper.

New Trends in Handmade Paper Lighting

If you've been watching the hit TV show Making It, you may have enjoyed (as I did) the Faster Craft Challenge in Episode 5 that featured natural lighting - no spoilers here, but wow! Paper and lamps have long gone hand in hand since shades are often made of paper, thus lighting is something I've featured fairly frequently here on All Things Paper, however, it's been a while since we last visited Etsy to discover the latest examples. Let's go!

Lighthearted Paper Craft Projects - Handmade Cards and a Toilet Paper Rose

After last week's lengthy post about an amazing quilled orchestra, I'll give your eyes a rest by simply sharing a couple of quick projects (compared to an entire band!) that I made recently. No less enjoyable to create, I must say... I had a nice, relaxing time working on each one.

Remarkable 65 Piece Quilled Paper Orchestra by Kariana Leinbach

I love to see people breaking new ground when it comes to paper art, and a complete orchestra quilled in miniature size by Kariana Leinbach certainly falls into the Wow! category. The moment I came across it on the Quilled Creations Facebook page, I wanted to interview Kariana so that we could enjoy hearing about all that went into completing this monumental project.
