Fringed Flowers for Quilling
Last year I created a letter E monogram for a dear friend. After all the positive feedback, I'm pleased to offer it on Etsy. This is a combination of my top two paper passions - quilling and die cutting, my worlds colliding.
The flowers blossom at varying stages just by the way you curve the paper petals. The colors shown here are done by hand using alcohol-based markers. The stamen, petals, and leaves are designed as one strip to allow for quick rolling / quilling.
Fringed quilling strips have traditionally been limited to 90˚ or 45˚ cuts, but with a digital die cutter, the sky is the limit. This collection of 4 flowers with rounded petals are combined with a scalloped edge heart tray to hold your bouquet. They are ideal for card making, gift wrapping, or decorating custom monograms or letters.
