I’m so excited to share my fantastic chat with the creator of Paper Zen, Cecilia Louie. We discussed Cecelia’s incredible contribution to the paper art world through her tutorials, templates, and books she’s published, and the story behind the name ‘Paper Zen’. We also spoke about Cecelia’s philosophy of sharing free templates via her blog for other people to use.
Enjoy this interview and see what happens when quilling and die cutting collide.

Who am I? I’m Charlotte, a quilling enthusiast based in Sydney, Australia. I started this channel in September 2020 to revitalise the lost art of quilling.
