To make curlicues out of shredded paper for Christmas presents; you take regular shredded paper and wrap it around a knitting needle, or larger bamboo skewer, (did you know that bamboo is the only really waterproof wood) and spritz it lightly with a mister bottle, then place it in a warm place, or oven, to dry; this is another way to curl yarn for dolls hair.
Source: This has been taught by crafters for years, the technique can be used on almost any paper or yarn.

What are curlicues?
WOW!... This is SOOOO COOL!... I especially like the idea of curling doll hair that way...
---> And "Curlicues" are CURLY-Q's... Like what happens when you run scissors down ribbon for bows on gifts... (Basically "Ringlets"... Like Shrilly Temple's hair) or coils that look like "Springs".
