Hello 3 Birds Fans! It’s Juliana here to share with you a project using my new found love – quilling! I have fallen head over heels in love with the art of quilling and all of the amazing patterns and designs you can create with it. Not to mention all of the things you can add quilling too! Quilling is often used on cards, and I have created some cards using it. However, I have been wanting to mix it up a little recently and try using it for something different. During a recent trip to Michael’s, I was inspired to try using it to alter a wood letter. Today, I’m sharing with you how I altered the letter using a piece of patterned paper and of course some quilling. The finished letter is going to be a birthday present for my niece who loves all things pink and flowers!
I then pulled out the 3 Birds Design new Quill Ease Tool and created a bunch of quilled flowers. This new tool will be available on HSN on July 23 and let me tell you now, this thing is awesome! It is a motorized quilling tool and it works wonderfully to create the simple quilled coils that are the basis of many quilled shapes.
As I created the flowers, I laid them on the wooden letter to determine where I wanted to position them. Once I was finished, I took a quick photo with my camera phone so that I would remember where everything went.
The final step was to adhere my quilled flowers. I used my camera phone photo to help me remember the placement of each flower. One final touch to the flowers was the addition of some small adhesive backed jewel to the center of each flower. I love the sparkle and shine they add to the piece and I can’t wait to give it to my niece for her birthday!
So do you love quilling? We would love to see what you have created! You can share them with us on our Facebook page or tag us on Pinterest or Instagram with #3birdsdesign!
