MC Feb/15 - Round Easel - Quilled Basket of Flowers - Just For You - HB quilling friends asked me to figure out how to make a basket that they saw in a picture... The first one I made was white (color they wanted) using plastic cocktail skewers and white quilling paper. After that one I made the one on this card using Bamboo skewer ends instead. Same number of posts, but it became double the size. Amazing the size difference because of the posts... had also made a bunch more of my purple petals at the last quilling session, so wanted to use them. And I had a whole bunch of roses I had die cut from various dies and some eCut files sitting on my desk. So it all came together. I'm laughing when i think of the quote I recently scribed "Less is more only unless more is too much"...

Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions, more views and a bit of detail instructions for the basket by clicking on any image. Enjoy.

I'm using a sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design, love this set... "Just For You" 4 pce set" and an eCut file available on the Silhouette onLine store "Happy Birthday".
