Quilled Scarlet Red Flowers in a Shadowbox Frame

Hello Everybody!

A few weeks ago I received a special order: I was asked to create a frame with some simple flowers. With NO dead line! This of course allowed me to take much more time than I actually wanted to dedicate to this project. Not the best working scenario for me!

A while ago, I purchased a set of papers with five new colors,  so I decided to try them. I instantly fell in love with the scarlet red paper and, from the moment I laid my eyes on it, I knew that I will shred it to strips which I will eventually turn into some pretty flowers. That is exactly what I did, but after making the 3 big flowers, the project came to a halt. I had no idea what to make of them and only after one week or so I finally created a design suited for my quilled scarlet red flowers. This is the end result:

I am really happy with the outcome, I simply love to make 3D projects! If the frame was a little deeper, the plants would have looked so much better! The next thing on my to-do-list is to learn how to deepen a frame!

Here are a few photos with some close-ups and side views:

 The inside of the frame measures 23/23cm. For the red flowers and leaves I used 120g/sm paper, hand cut into 2mm strips, and for the fringed flowers, 80g/sm paper. The diameter of the largest flower is approx 5cm.

  I hope my customer will be as excited as I am about my creation!

Until next time, happy quilling!
