Can you quill with regular paper?
All slotted tools will work with regular weight paper strips. However, if you wish to work with cardstock weight paper, then you might have trouble fitting the paper into the slot. Look for a slotted tool with a slightly larger opening so you will be able to work with heavier weight papers.
What can you use instead of a quilling tool?
- Utility knife.
- Mechanical pencil.
- Cotton swab (Q-tip)
- Seam ripper.
- Paint stick (I used it to protect the surface while cutting)
- Quilling paper or strips of cut construction paper to test.
