Extreme Paper Quilling

Updated on July 25, 2016

Paper Quilling 3-D Sculptures

Paper quilling is a form of paper craft where long thin strips of paper are tightly rolled around a "quill" to form a filligree or openwork design. The quills originally used were the tips of goose feathers hence the name quilling. It is a paper craft practised by the genteel crowds of long ago who had a lot of leisure time on their hands. But this lost art has made a comeback.The origin of paper quilling dates back to the 13th century where nuns curled the gilded trimmings from bible pages to create a work of art. This lens is about paper quilling 3-D sculptures where possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

All photos were taken by Bakerwoman, jennysh_who in Flickr unless otherwise attributed.

Excellent video tutorial

This is a video of what paper quilling is all about for the uninitiated. It shows the basic shapes and patterns to build an artwork, whether it a flower, animal, insect or whatnot.

The sky is the limit.

All of these 3D paper quilling sculptures were made by my co-worker's brother. These amazing artwork were fueled by a creative mind , a very fertile imagination, and a lot of patience.

Blue and white peacock - Showy plumage

The male peacock has iridescent blue-green plumage. This paper quilling sculpture shows the "eyes" of the fanned tailed as oval-shaped coils.

Red and white peacock - Wowing the crowd

In art, anything is possible. This is the one and only red and white peacock I have ever seen and it sits on top of my office cabinet. It never ceases to catch the attention of visitors who stop by my cubicle.

The ultimate chariot race - Who will reach the finish line first?

Photo Credit: jennysh_who

This is a fantasy-inspired version of a frog in a chariot race. It is the frog slave driver prodding the slow crustacean to go faster. I would say it's a long way to Tipperary.

The flaming firebird

This is an interpretation of the Phoenix bird also called the fIrebird from Harry Potter's "The Sorcerer's Companion:A guide to the magical world of Harry Potter."This makes a great Christmas tree ornament or a desk d├ęcor for the Harry Potter fans.

The difference between a tortoise and a turtle - Red tortoise

The red tortoise has feet and live mostly on land and is a vegetarian while the green turtle have flippers and live primarily in the water.

Paper quilled Blue Crab

This blue crab is a scavenger and is always on the lookout for dead blue crabs and leftover decaying flesh.

Pig warrior ( squealer) - Paper quilled armor, shield and spear

If a battle ensued between the pig and frog warriors, who do you think will win? Will the piggies be squealing with delight and the amphibians be hopping mad? Or will the little piggy go "Wee, wee, wee all the way home?"

A yellow sticky reminder

Paper quilling does not need a lot of glue to hold the ends of the coiled paper. This is to avoid residue buildup and warping the paper. Glue that dries clear, like Elmer's Glue, is the best to use with a dab at the end of a toothpick or T-pin.

Caterpillar or a snail or a scatterpillar?


A snail does not have legs but has an outer shell. A caterpillar has legs but does not have a shell. But this littler crawler not only have legs but a shell to hide in. I call it the scatterpillar.

Check out the different coils and patterns to use in paper quilling here. Learn about the different shapes, like square, teardrop, diamond, bell, and many more.

Paper Quilling grasshopper - Not just all legs- guess where its ears are

Photo Credit: jennysh_who

The grasshopper is not only all legs which make it an Olympian hopper. The grasshopper is also all ears. You heard it right. The ears of a grasshopper are on the knee joints of its legs.

Red hot feline - A cat's meow

Photo Credit: jennysh_who

This is the simplest of the paper quilling sculpture for the cat fancier. Art without the presence of a cat is not a cat's meow.

Little paper quilled piggy - "Wee, wee, wee, all the way home"

Note the combination of different colored paper in the coil which makes the body of this cute piggy more visually pleasing.

Paint the town red in this charming rickshaw

This human-powered cycle rickshaw or pedicab is a common mode of transportation in South Asia. Some passenger seats are behind the driver, on the side of the driver or in front of the driver. In the case of this cycle rickshaw, the driver sits on a tadpole seat and uses his leg power to pedal the passengers or tourists around. This beats paying a membership fee at the health club, plus one gets paid developing good leg muscles.

Have you every heard of paper quilling before?

Rickshaw-cycle hybrid

This is a finely constructed paper quilling tricycle influenced by the flaming hot rod design. It is still foot-powered and has a back seat with a covered roof.

Tear into town in this eye-popping flaming cycle. This will make the Harley Davidson aficionados green with envy.

The ultimate rock band circus act - There is more to see than meets the eye

This paper quilling sculpture has it all. A motley crew of musicians, caterpillar and turtles stunt performers, and a whole lot more. This is the work of one who had a very fertile imagination and the epitome of patience.

Everybody is getting into the act - Paper quilling rocks

This is a close-up of the details put into the rock band sculpture. DIfferent colors and types of paper coils were used to created this fanciful and magical work of art.

Paper Quilling Instructions- making your first coil

These paper quilling instructions will help you get started on the amazing art or paper quilling.

Nature comes to life in these 3D paper quilling artwork.

A labor of love.

Larger and more complex paper quilling 3D sculptures can take a week or more to do. Each work has so much details and is a cross between a mosaic and a painting when viewed from a distance. It is hard to believe these are all made of paper.

These 3-dimensional quilled flowers are bursting with life and are just as amazing when viewed closeup or at a distance.

      Oh, how neat! The possibilities are endless! I used to roll paper up like this when I was bored, but I never thought to actually made something out of it!

      @anonymous: Perhaps, boredom can lead to some creative artwork with rolled strips of paper.

      The quilling technique is so amazing. I've discovered it recently and fell in love immediately. But designs on this page are really extreme, that must be really difficult. Amazing lens thank you for sharing.

      I feel that everyone should have a hobby, a personal interest outside their job and family and everyday life. While we focus on a craft we take the time out from our hectic schedules and often have time to reflect on our lives while actually working on it. Paper quilling is great because it allows the individual to express their creativity by choosing the color, design etc.
