Gift tags

      I like to give small quilled cards to my students . Last year I made lot of flowers to encourage them and it worked so well I am making some this year too. Its also so wonderful to see the reactions of kids who see quilled work for the first time.
      Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.

Quilled girl card

      Another girl card with something on it which was on my to-do list for a long time-a quilled dress for a girl. New clothes are as important as a beautiful birthday cake for a little girl.

      Another picture of the quilled dress. I do so love to work with crimped strips.  I have used two shades of blue strips for the dress.

      Today is the first day of my summer classes and I expect to be super busy for a month . I still have a couple of card requests and so will be quilling too.

      Thanks for stopping by, have a creative day.

Quilled fruits

          I was asked to make a card with a raspberry on it . I really had to search to find out how a raspberry looks like .Thankfully I also found a few quilled raspberries in the quilled creations gallery.Along with the raspberry I also quilled a slice of watermelon , a strawberry and an orange slice(or lemon slice like Akhil seems to think).Quilling the fruits with all the small elements was not easy at all. 
       I want the card to delight a little girl for whom the card is . My kids liked the quilled fruits and I hope she likes it too.
      Its summer here and Chennai is becoming hotter by the day but then, it is also the watermelon season. 


       The request is from the girl's grandmother  ,she is also the one who bought my first card and the sweetest of people .She wished me so well when I was too nervous and unsure about selling my work.

Bunch of flowers

           Quilling flowers is what I love the most and what could be a better gift than a bunch of flowers. I made this card for a butterfly lover and so I included this small butterfly. I have already sent this card and hope it reaches her safely. 

       The card is for non other than our kavitha of kalalayaa .Ever since I received her candy I have been thinking of making a card for her. I had a lot of card requests that I had to finish but ,better late than never . I enjoyed making this card and hope she likes it.
