Due to a large volume of orders and the handmade nature of each piece, I'm unable to accommodate more order requests at this time.
If you've already placed an order and paid the deposit, it will not be affected. If you've submitted an inquiry on 8/28/2022 or before, you will still receive a response and I may be able to accommodate your order. New inquiries are currently closed.
To stay up to date when orders are open again, follow on TikTok & Instagram @TheQuillingEdge or subscribe to the email list.
In the meantime, here's more about the original artwork on this page:
All items shown are original designs, handmade in the art of paper quilling, by Carolyn Edge. Paper quilling is an ancient art form that involves rolling and shaping long strips of paper into different designs.
All of these designs are available for reproduction. Due to the handmade nature of the artwork, variations will occur in each piece, creating a design that is unique to each piece.
See more information in the FAQs below. To see prices for each item, click on any photo of the artwork you're interested in.
If you're looking for a completely unique design (your brand logo, something special for your wedding, or anything you don't see here), that's considered a commission. See more on the commissions page.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I place an order? 1. Inquiry All orders are by inquiry only. All items are handmade and I have a large volume of orders, so to place an order you must first submit the inquiry form below, or email email@example.com and tell me which piece you're interested in. Due to the high volume of orders I receive, I may not be able to start your order for several weeks. In the inquiry process, I will let you know where you are in line and give you an idea of the timeline you can expect. 2. Reserve your order with a deposit Once we agree upon your order in the inquiry process, you will receive a custom order listing. A $100 deposit will be due to secure your order. This applies toward your total payment. 3. Creating your artwork Before work begins on your order, I will reach out to let you know I'm ready to start on it. The remaining balance will be due before work begins. Payment plans are available through Afterpay. Processing time is usually 1-3 weeks from the time I start your order. Rush processing may be possible for an additional fee, depending on availability. 4. Delivery You will receive a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number. Orders are usually shipped with USPS priority mail and should arrive within 1-3 business days. Please note that delivery time is separate from the artwork processing time.
How much does original artwork cost? To see prices for each piece, click on any photo. If you're interested in a size or variation that isn't shown in the photos, I can quote you a specific price in the inquiry process.
What's included in the price? All prices include a shadowbox frame (your choice of black or white) and shipping within the US. International shipping may be available, depending on the country, for an additional fee. The price quoted is the final price with no additional fees. The only additional cost might be tax, which is only applicable if the artwork is shipping to Texas. (My business nexus is in Texas and you don't need to know what that means other than orders shipping to Texas will have tax added. For items shipping outside of Texas, see your local sales and use tax regulations.) If you're curious what's behind the price points, I'm happy to provide a more detailed breakdown.
Can I change the colors or customize elements of these designs? Yes, in most cases, all artwork shown here can be made with different colors or other small variations. Some items are intended to be customized (like the names and state maps.) If you would like other variations like changing the types of flowers or anything that's a significant deviation from what's shown, that falls into the category of a commission. Please see more information on the commissions tab.
Why can I not just place an order like a regular store? Every item is handmade and has a lengthy processing time. I typically have several orders in line and fulfill them in the order they're received. If I had an order placed in the middle of processing other orders, I would not be able to fulfill them all in a timely manner. I do not have other artists under my brand who help create the art. It's a one-woman show. When you order, you're receiving a unique, handmade work of art. In our world of instant gratification, I believe we can use more things that help us slow down, and quilling is one of those things by necessity. I put a lot of detail and care into every piece I create. That takes time, and in order to ensure I have enough time to put into each order, the process must start with an inquiry so I can communicate about how many people are in line for orders. There's no machine that can make this style of art. Trust me, it's worth the wait.
Will the artwork fade over time? How do I care for my artwork? All artwork is finished with a UV resistant sealant. Archival materials are also used to ensure the art will be preserved over time. It's best to keep the art out of direct sunlight to prevent fading over time. If possible, keep it out of humidity and extreme temperatures. Paper quilling art is best protected behind a shadow box frame, which is provided with each order. If for any reason you choose not to frame it, use canned air or a light duster to keep it clean.
Do you offer payment plans? Yes. The process for ordering artwork first of all is a $100 deposit due to hold your place in line, then the remainder due before work begins. Additional payment plans are available through PayPal's Pay Later option. If you need additional accommodation on splitting payments, I'm happy to help.
Do you take cancellations, refunds, or exchanges? If you would like to cancel your place in line before work begins, 50% of your deposit will be refundable. Once work begins, no payments made are eligible for refund, due to the personalized nature of each piece. I do not accept exchanges. If your artwork arrives damaged or there are any issues with your product, please contact me within 48 hours at firstname.lastname@example.org to find a resolution.
