Paper Quilling

I purchased a "for Dummies" kit of paper quilling. It had everything I need to start and give it a try without putting out a lot of money. It was "supposed" to be here for Christmas. Yeah, right. Thanks to Fed/Ex and it going "second day" (what ever THAT means) it showed up today. 10 days after it shipped. ANYWAY -- it got here yesterday and I've been playing a bit with it and some of these are still a bit rough, but I thought I would share anyways. I am starting to get the hang of it, so hopefully, they won't be nearly as rough in the future. I am currently working on the "wheatear" technique and making a flower out of it. Hopefully, I can post it soon.
Here is what I have done so far. (that is a quarter in the picture for reference of size, if you didn't already figure that out!)

Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully, I will be able to start remembering to post my new crafts to this blog! I will try harder! Promise!


  1. Wow Becky! Those are soooo tiny and beautiful! I love the much!

  2. Great job Bek!!! I've been thinking about getting my quilling stuff out again, it is fun isn't it?

  3. Bek I think you did a great job on your quilling.
    Like Sheri said they are really tiny so I am sure you felt like all thumbs at first. I think you are on your way in being a quilling pro.
    Hugs, Fran

  4. Awesome Bek. My aunt did quilling and I loved it. I don't think I have the patience or eyesite for it. Looks awesome girlie. Love ya!
