Aren't those mod little flowers the bomb! The technique of "quilling" was featured this month in my Stampin' Up! demonstrator magazine. Once I saw how easy it was, I was hooked. You'll definitely see more of this technique from me. Today is also a new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO205)
Paper Quilling offers so many 3-D possibilities. Here's a quick video tutorial to share some of the basics to get you started!
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- I cropped and attached a circle to each quilled flower. This adds color, pattern and definition.
- Isn't the Nursery Nest Designer Series Paper (122347) charming? Be sure to stock up on Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper during the Buy 3, Get 1 Free Promotion. Ends 8/31.
- Stampin' Up! Jewels Basic Pearls. Yum! They as so quick and easy to use. The "string of pearls" along the Marina Mist vertical strip, is so glamorous.
- Layering ribbon offers a completely fresh look. Marina Mist 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon wraps around Pear Pizzazz and pops up through the button for a sweet bow. Check out this previously shared 1 Minute to WOW tutorial for a virtual lesson.
