No, it's not origami. It's quilling, and our instructor Ann Martin of All Things Paper tells us it's not that difficult either. Here's what she suggests we use to make them:
- quilling paper, 3/8" or 1/4" widths are suggested
- a quilling tool, slotted or needle type
- glue, used for paper
- plastic lid, used for a palette
- paper piercing tool or toothpick to apply glue
