Some classic rivalries have been around for as long as anyone can remember: Coke vs Pepsi, summer vs winter, cats vs dogs, good vs evil, to name a few. The crafting world has its own set of established rivalries, and some of them can be pretty niche. However, the best kind of rivalries is the kind that has a connection with the world at large, some sort of common thread that ties the rivalry to something universal, no matter how niche it is. Nothing exemplifies that better than the following list that asks the age-old question philosophers have been trying to answer for centuries: which is better, paper quilled plants or paper quilled animals?
Paper quilling is the definition of a niche interest, but even if you’ve never heard of it, you can identify with the classic struggle between flora and fauna. It’s a timeless tale of nature’s two greatest living entities battling it out for dominance. Sort of. Come to think of it, plants and animals aren’t so much rivals as they are just two things that exist alongside each other.
Regardless of how it is in the real world, when it comes to the world of paper quilling, it does seem like the vast majority of quilling tutorials fall into either one realm or the other. Now is your chance to determine which style is the better one. Do flowers have the edge or do animals reign supreme? Choose carefully; the future of quilling is in your hands.
