Quilled Mother’s Day Frame

Mother’s Day is coming soon and I thought I would share a hand made project that I created for my Mom to let her know just how much I love her. I created it using the Graceful Season Quilled Cardmaking Kit.All That I Am Mother's Day  Quilled Frame by Juliana Michaels 3 Birds Studio Graceful Season HSN.com 3birdsdesign.com #3birdsdesign #mothersday #quilling

I was inspired to create this shadow box piece after seeing this beautiful watercolor art print. I decided to replace the watercolor flowers with quilled flowers using a combination of the die cut and straight quilled pieces that come in the Quilled Cardmaking Kit. The 8×8 shadow box frame was purchased from my local craft store.

Because I wanted to create this as a gift for my Mom, I thought it would be nice to use a Mother themed quote in the center of the flowers. I found this quote by Abraham Lincoln and thought it was perfect:

All I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.

 

I created a digital cut file for the quote to use with my Silhouette Cameo and then cut it from a piece of gold foil paper from the Graceful Season 6×6 Foil Paper Pad. You can visit my blog to download this cut file for FREE!

I then set about the task of make all of the quilled flowers. This took some time, but I find making them somewhat relaxing, so I didn’t mind it at all.

DESIGNER TIP | To help determine the position of the flowers and words I first laid them out on a piece of patterned paper cut to fit the inside of the frame. I then took a photo of it with my phone and used the photo as a reference for adhering the flowers.
