The craft of paper quilling (rolled pieces of paper glued to form a design) is recaptured primarily in a series of more than 70 projects. Some of Johnston's recommendations for application may seem too "loving hands at home": quilled pictures on refrigerator magnets, as earrings, embellishing a chessboard, or imitating plants. Others project a sense of elegance: as borders for picture frames and birth and wedding announcements and as decorations for baskets and hats. Step-by-step procedures and an explanation of necessary tools help crafters start; most of the actual projects are accompanied by color photographs, but they lack detailed lists of materials.
