Quilled Paper Easter Eggs
Using scrapbook paper instead of quilling paper is interesting because the scrapbook paper is either white on the backside or has a white center. This in turn leaves a white edge on each quilled piece. And exactly that seemed fascinating because once the quilled paper circles were glued together, the egg looked somehow antique and subtle, rather than brilliantly colored. What is also amazing is just how many quilled circles it took to decorate just one egg.
This project is time consuming. The eggs used were about 7.5 cm each. One egg required approximately 200 circles and depending on how fast you work, it can about 2 hours or more to complete it.
