Quilled Snowflake Flower


Hi everyone!  Back with another blue and white project that I made for the Custom Quilling newsletter.  But first, I want to let you know that my quilling class:


for My Creative Classroom is open for registration and will be starting soon - March 2, 2012!  You can register and start after the 1st day of class for a short time. The online class covers the basics of quilling as well as more advanced techniques. The class is six weeks, one new lesson each week, view at your leisure, and has lots of projects for you practice and show off your new quilling skills.  If you would like to learn how to quill and make your own quilled projects, click on the links above to see the full class description, supply list and registration link. I'd love to see you there!

 Now on to the project above. You can click on pictures for larger view. We don't get snow here on the Gulf Coast very often so I usually have to make my own snowflakes if I want to see them.  I used a hurricane candle cover and set it onto a glass dessert plate filled with glass pebbles in shades of blue and white and glittered punched snowflakes.  Inside the candle cover is a small candle votive. 



I wrapped a wide blue satin wire edge ribbon around the hurricane cover using double sided tape and attached a separate bow to the front.  The bow was the perfect place to show off a quilled snowflake that is embellished with clear crystals and pearls.  Two smaller snowflakes dangle from it.



Along the ribbon I put smaller snowflakes and snowflake flowers made from shimmery pearly strips.  The two layer snowflake flowers were made with 6 blue eccentric marquise with white V scrolls between them.  Then a smaller 6 marquise white layer added on top.  For the other version, I used blue V scrolls between the white layer.  Add a pearl or crystal to the center.  This would be pretty in any color combination! 






If you make a project with these versatile flowers, post a link in the comments section to share!  Due to increasing spam in my contact email, please put a specific post reference in the subject line if you have a question or request.  If it is general, just reference the most recent post.  Sorry to have to ask you to go to that trouble but spammers are getting increasingly clever at the subject lines of their posts and I cannot afford to click on one that may be infected!! If you have sent me an email asking a questions lately, PLEASE resend it again!!  Thank you for all your sweet comments.

Shalom,
Sonya

This is so beautiful! Very clean quilling too. I'm always afraid of taking closeup shots of my quilling because the glue will show but yours are very nicely done with attention to details!
