It’s been awhile since I last made a proper quilling frame, so I am very happy to share with you my quilled jasmine flowers!
Due to my current “stem-everything” obsession, all the projects intended to be framed ended up in a vase or as stand-alone pieces. Unfortunately, this type of display is not very practical since the dust tends to set on the delicate quilled elements, making it impossible to clean. So, I decided to take old ideas and modify them in order to make them suitable for framing. I started with the quilled jasmine flowers and I absolutely loved creating the three-dimensional design!
The total size of the frame is 25cm*25cm, with the inside measuring 23cm*23cm. For the flowers I used hand cut 1.5mm wide 160gsm paper strips. The diameter of the largest flower is approx. 3.5cm. The leaves are made of 120gsm paper.
The bee is 2cm long and made of 3mm wide 120gsm yellow paper strips. The black strips are only 1mm wide. This was the original design:
And this is the final version, with a tiny black needle:
