Have you ever tried quilling? I’ve always wanted to, and this fringed paper flower gift bow by All Things Paper would be a great place to start. Ann also has shared some fun ideas for gift wrapping with quilling paper, plus some FAQs about quilling. This paper flower is gorgeous and somewhat simple to make. Ann actually created the orange marbled look of the paper herself with a color gelatos stick and a brush. You could also use watercolors, paints, markers, or a number of other art supplies to create a fun look on your paper flower. If you’re wanting to save time, you could also just use colored paper. I also love how Ann used pieces of quilling paper instead of ribbons when she was wrapping her gift.
