Good luck! If you don't mind my asking, where were you able to find quilling paper. I got a quilling craft kit years agoas a birthday present ( and I do mean years - think 1970's) and have done it on and off ever since then. My major problem (aside from lack of time and too many other craft interests) is finding the quilling paper. Only occasionally can I find it in craft stores etc. since it is not a well known craft.
This paper came from a calendar with a quilling project for each day. I haven't yet tried to find it separately, but I was thinking I might even try buying sheets of paper with similar texture and cutting it myself. I have no idea if it would work, though!
