Small Sunflower Pin
Handmade sunflower pin by Paper Treasures of Topeka, KS. Quilling as an art form began to flourish in the early 1600s. French and Italian monks and nuns made the first pieces using paper from old documents and letters and the gilt=edged pages of old books. They rolled strips of paper around a large feather quill, creating scrolls and coils to decorate religious symbols and to detail pilgrimage mementos.
