A few weeks ago I received a mail from a very sweet person asking me to make a valentine's day card. She let me choose the colours and layout . Her only request was that I use Royal quilled flowers in them. Thanks to her I made these gorgeous flowers . I used dark centred pink-purple paper strips and white strips . I embossed a sheet of metallic white paper and cut out the heart shape. Although most people use a slotted toll to make royal quilled flowers , I prefer using a needle. I loved using these dark centred paper strips , the tight coils and the multi strip scrolls were all made from the same pack. The thick crimped white paper strips are hand cut.
