I recently tried paper quilling with my residents and they really enjoyed it!
I bought some very inexpensive quilling pens or tools from an online supplier and cut up paper stock into 5 mm strips.
Even the residents with limited dexterity and eyesight managed to make some.
There are plenty of you tube videos on the subject too... we worked on filling an 8 x 5 frame together - which we did in about an hour and a half.
I finished gluing them all in place the next day.
