Someone liked my white basket with lilies so much that she ordered a brown one with more colourful flowers.
I made the basket from large pieces of ordinary, brown wrapping paper cut into 3x7 cm rectangles that eventually formed the modules, the small triangles, and played around with the flowers, their shapes and colours, and combined origami with quilling in one basket.
The daffodil was the hardest :) and the rose the easiest one. I also made a rose of crepe paper which I like more because it has rounder edges and it's so much fluffier.
I decided to make a greeting card for my cousin who came home to visit her family after living many years in the United States. I wanted the card to be sooo pretty and colourful... so I tried making all sorts of flowers in various shapes and colours. I worked with 5mm paper strips, which were far too wide for a greeting card, but hey... I was still experimenting...
And one more thing I've learned: I'll never use double sided tape again to glue the flowers to the card. They would fall off in time. I just didn't have the right liquid glue for that... yet ;)
Besides all this, quilling is fun! :)
I also added a message to the card: it says "welcome home" in hungarian.
Here's how I made a plain black photo frame more elegant and eyecatching with simple white paper flowers. They're my first try, I barely got acquainted with quilling, they're not so brilliant, but I enjoyed making them.
Although it's not made of paper, it's handmade. I created it with love for my newborn niece.
The three layers are made of rolls of diapers tied together with an elastic string then with silky ribbons. I decorated the cake with small paper roses, flowers made of ribbon, baby bodies, socks, a pair of shoes, a rattle and other extra elements. It turned out pretty good for a first try, I guess :)
