Wedding Trend Alert: Paper Quilling
Today, I want to share with all of you an emerging wedding trend that is beginning to catch on within the bridal industry. It’s called paper quilling, and I’m absolutely in love with the design element of it. If you’re not familiar, quilling is basically an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The concept is inspiring brides to create intricate, low-cost wedding decor and eco-friendly floral alternatives. Look for this trend to gain popularity as 2011 rolls around. DIY brides are going to love this.
Being able to customize a quilling project to match the exact colors of a wedding theme is one of the reasons this trend is gaining popularity.
Wedding invitations and save-the-dates are the easiest way to incorporate quilling into a wedding. Forget the ribbon and beads, it’s time for dress up your stationery with some gorgeous curls of paper.
Gawd, aren’t you in LOVE! Like I said, we should start seeing more and more of this in 2011, but until then, you have the chance to be truly unique and fashion-foward by using the art of paper quilling in your upcoming wedding planning. For a quick intro and tutorial, click here.
