About This Class
I bet you are wondering...what on earth is paper quilling?
Don't worry. You do not need ANY prior knowledge to take and successfully complete this class.
Quilling is also known as paper filigree. It involves curling, rolling and scrolling thin strips of paper into various shapes for decorative and artistic purposes, and in this case, a pair of triple heart earrings!
During this class you will learn about what paper quilling is, including where it gets it’s name. You will get an introduction to essential quilling tools and learn basic quilling skills to make a pair of gorgeous filigree heart earrings.
You can find a great quilling kit for purchase on my website SweetheartsandCrafts.com as well as my paper quilled jewelry and art collections, in-person events, and free tutorials.

Wow what a great class. I really enjoyed the class. Marissa is a great teacher and she explained how to make paper quilling earrings very nicely. Love this class. Thanks, Marissa for this wonderful class. Hope to see more paper quilling classes.
Artist and teacher
Excellent instruction methods. Very easy to understand and replicate. Check out my results.
This lesson is so clear. I love how Marissa repeats certain steps like the actual quilling/rolling of the paper so I could see exactly what she's doing. I hope she makes more videos because she's really easy to follow and I am enjoying this class.
I learned to be crafty...
I love paper quilling and making paper quilled jewelry, ornaments, and art pieces. I also make gel medium art pieces often including paint and other mixed media. I then embellish the images with paper filigree, making 3D paper quilled art. Outside of my shop, Sweethearts and Crafts, I love to take quilling beyond "the norm" and love experimenting to see what I can make, including baby mobiles, holiday centerpieces, hair accessories, greeting cards, sculptures, and wedding cake toppers...all from humble strips of paper.
But I didn't always consider myself an artist...
I grew up thinking that the art gene skipped over me. My brother and sister could draw and paint in a way I could never figure out. When I drew a person the proportions were always wrong and my self-portrait looked more like "The Scream" than my own face. In college I quit my drawing class after one day because my professor had used my canvas as an example of "what not to do". I remember crying on the walk back to my dorm room. It was one of the few times I ever quit anything.
Thank goodness, I didn't let a bad experience stop me. Eventually, with the encouragement of a few people in my life, I realized that I didn't have to be artsy...I could be crafty.
My Aunty Cathy introduced me to quilling. She, however, is an amazing quilter; quilTer, with a T. She does things with fabric that would make Belgian nuns jealous and she always creates her pieces with love of family as her muse. Thanks to her encouragement and faith in my creativity, I found my talent as a crafter. She always knew the art gene didn't skip over me, it just needed to be harnessed in a different way.
