In this project you'll see how to make a nice Quilling Candle Holder.

Quilling is an old art, with its roots planted sometime in the XVII-th century, and it involves rolling strips of paper to form various shapes. Nowadays, it's still in demand, and it's sought after as a way to relax and let go of one's stress. The basic materials used are paper of various thicknesses, glue, and a special instrument that is used to roll paper strips.
