Quilling with Sandy Watson

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, March 2008


Crafter Sandy Watson is here to demonstrate quilling, an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. Simply gather together your tools and materials and download one of the pretty fringed blossom templates below, along with the basket template, to begin quilling a lovely flower design at home. (Martha and Sandy made Pretty Fringed Blossom 4 on the show.)
