Embellish handwritten poems, messages, and family photographs with intricate combinations of quilled shapes. The scroll, the marquise, the tight circle, and the teardrop are all easy to master; quill the shapes first, and then combine them to create borders. Or draw a border design and curl strips of paper to match.
Here, we arranged a series of fleurs-de-lis, each made from three V scrolls of graduated sizes, and one teardrop.
