Natalie Sandifer Artisan Gifts

Beginning to look a lot like Christmas

This year I decided to expand the product range into Christmas cards. I already make greetings cards so I thought I'd try my hand at the art of paper rolling; aka Quilling.

Quilling or paper filigree is the process of manipulating thin strips of paper into all manner of shapes and I love it. Although a bit fiddly it is actually quite therapeutic.

I have a couple of designs I am working on, Holly & Ivy and two snowflake designs.

Each card takes around 2 hours to make. In one week I made 10 cards during my free evenings to launch at the market last weekend and they are proving to be popular.

Next blog I will fill you in on my second Christmas project, which I am rather excited about.
