Homyachok Quilling Challenge #1: Solo – Quilled Red Dahlia

Hello Everybody!

I made this flower for Homyachok challenge #1, titled ‘Solo’. The rule is to create one beautiful quilled flower.

Take a Quill Pill Challenge #11 – Quilled Jewelry

Here are my entries:

 I really enjoyed creating these pendants and I am honored for being a part of the designer team! I hope you too will take part in this challenge!

Good luck!

Diamond Shaped Greeting Card with Quilled Flowers

I’ve always hesitated to make quilled cards. Give me that tiny space and I have no idea how to fill it. Luckly for me, my friend Khush kept nagging me (in a nice way, of course) to give it a try. I saw a few weeks ago on Angelin’s blog a very nice diamond shaped greeting card and since she was kind to share the tutorial (thank you, Angelin!), I decided to make a similar one.

And this is the result:

I used 160g/sm card board, but I think thicker card board would have been a better choice (the card tends to tilt to the sides because the quilled part is a bit heavy). For the flowers and the fringed centers I used 80g/sm paper, hand cut into 2mm strips, and for the leaves 120g/sm paper, hand cut into 2mm strips.
