It is a bit difficult to make cards for boys. When Akhil asked to make a card for his friend I thought a kite would be a nice idea for a boy and since it is not much work I put it off till the very end. Yesterday evening I found that quilling a kite not at all easy to me .The four right angled triangles with equal common sides was not easy. I finally quilled some clouds and finished the card as I did not have time for another trial.
This pongal holidays I was determined to quill, but not easy when my kids are home. I was still taking my quilling things around and leaving it about, this encouraged my family members to try quilling.
This one is by my husband :).
This is by Akhil. He used the slotted tool and is so careful while working not a bit of glue shows.
My elder son Abi finally was impressed with some quilled work. He was completely bowled over by the anotomical quilling on All things paper posted by Ann Martin. He went through Sarah's entire blog wondering why I don't quill like this. Boys do have different taste.
