Quilled flowers and a Handmade Paper frame

I made this Quilled flower frame few months back . I learnt to make Fringed flowers ( wasn't so good at it back then ) and quilled roses and I wanted to place it in a frame. There came to rescue- Inna's blog and her handmade paper frame tutorial- Inna's creations . 

I made a paper frame based on the measurements in the blog . I guess I used a 120 gsm cardstock back then. I love the way it has turned out :-) 

I also felt that using a heavier cardstock ( 180 gsm and above) would be sturdy enough and ideal for gifting purposes. 

Materials Used :

White Cardstock (120 gsm)

3mm quilling strips in Red, Yellow and Lavender to make Fringed flowers

3mm quilling strips in Green to make leaves and scrolls

3mm quilling strips in Rose to make buds

10mm quilling strips in Red to make roses

Slotted quilling tool, glue, paper knife, measuring scale and scissors

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a great day.

My Quilling Journey with Morning Glory Trellis Card

 It was in 2012 that I came to know about this wonderful art form seeing some of my friends quilled creations . When I was searching online, I came across Inna Dorman's Increations blog . I was and am still mesmerized by her stunning quilled creations.Thus started my Quilling Journey. The next step was to buy the quilling tools and the books online.Thanks to Swagbucks and yfs research surveys for easy pocket money ;-)

Quilled Morning Glory Trellis flower project was adapted from the book of Quilled Flowers by Alli Bartkowski. This book has about 35 paper projects and this book is one among my favorite collections. Its a keepsake for newbie quilling artists.

I learnt the spiral technique from Inna's blog :-) and the overall project was fun to make :-)

Materials used :

3mm Precut Quilling strips in Blue, Light blue, Yellow , Ivory and Dark green/Forest green

7mm White Quilling strips  

Green cardstock

Slotted quilling tool and Glue
