don't have to spend much money on craft materials to make
these fun and attractive projects. All you need are some paper
strips, a simple tool and a few other basic items to take
up the craft of quilling.
Quill an entire zoo with this book, from exotics like elephants,
lions and giraffes to farm animals, pets, and familiar wildlife
such as a fox, gray squirrel and hedgehog. This slim volume
does not give an in-depth course in quilling but points out
the basics such as forming coils, shaping them, sticking them
and making fringes. Each project tells you what you need to
buy (or cut by hand) together with clear written instructions
and a picture of the finished animal. On several there is
also an alternative to try and are detailed enough to make
a good picture, or a special card. Total beginners might find
some projects a bit challenging, but a bit of practice ought
to enable most people to create something to be proud of.
This is a lovely little book that gives a rather neglected
craft the modern touch and shows that you don't need to invest
in expensive equipment to make something impressive and attractive.
