Hi all, it seems I can't win for losing with the health issues. The pollen count is really high here in Houston and there hasn't been any rain to wash it away. Which means ALLERGIES!! I have had a really annoying and interfering allergy attack this past week and hadn't felt like doing anything. I worked on two projects and didn't finish either one. Good thing I have some projects ready by not posted and here is one of them, a quilled pecan pie slice treat box.
It is one of the projects that I made for the September Custom Quilling Newsletter. When I saw the rich brown card stock in the kit I knew I wanted to use it to make a pie slice. I quilled two coils and shaped them into a "D" shape with slightly inward curled tips. Then a smaller coil was shaped into a marquise and used as the center portion of the pecan slice. Two different colors of brown strips were used for contrast on the pecans.
The crust of the pie was made from shaping quilled coils into a "C" shape, gluing two together to build up the height. Then alternate these to form the pinched crust look. You could even make it three high if you wanted a taller crust. All of these quilled shapes were put on top of a pie slice treat box cut from my Cricut using Tags Bags and More and the top of the pie slice box from the Tie the Knot cartridge, for the "doily" plate.
I added a wide gold bow just behind the crust and added another pecan slice on it for an accent. You can make it smaller or larger if you want and fill them with your favorite treats, it opens at the back. Easy and looks real, or at least my grandson thought so! It was so fun to make I am sure I will make more versions. Well I am still fighting the lack of energy because I can't breathe but I am GOING to finish those two projects tomorrow!!! Back with another project,
Thanks so much for the encouraging comments and for those who are waiting for the Tie Fighter file,Thanks for being patient, it is coming!
