Tutorial - Christmas decorations quilling


As I promised I made a tutorial how to make lovely Christmas decorations :). At first we need:

1. six strips 60cm long and 0,3cm width

2. twelve strips 45cm long and 0,3cm width 
3. three strips 30cm long for middle coils :)

of course glue, comb and glitter glue (but not necessary) 

  We are making leaf using quilling comb (or normal comb :P) 

To make the small part of the star leave 6cm of the strip to wrap at the end. Wrap paper around third tine from loose part of paper strip . Pull the strip to the other side of comb and also wrap third tine (don't forget to glue strips always after you make these two loops around the opposite comb tines (loot 3 photo) And we are wrapping six tines of the comb (each side)

Thats how it should look at the end :)
First photo shows smal part (6 loops), second photo shows big part of the star ( 8 loops)

and thats how it look when you took strips from the comb

you have to bend this to make leaf (upside down) :P It was hard to keep it in whole making photo but normally it shouldn't fell apart like that...

and the final effect :D
Have fun!!!
 I hove I had explained this quite clearly...

3D water lily flowers (quilling)

Recently I don't have to looking for an inspiration very long. I came up with an idea to decorate my apartment with a picture in "Japanese garden" style... I'm going to make this happen soon... but I couldn't resist to post my recent creations - water lily flowers. I don't like pink color but these flowers are gorgeous :D, they are delicate and graceful like real water lilies should be... Don't you think?

Flowers are made from strips with 0,3cm width and different length depending on size of petals. Bottom of the lower is made from two strips 1cm width and stamens are made from 0,15cm strips. I had used 2 shades of pink and three shades of yellow.

Sweet Mock-orange 3D flowers (quilling)

Because I don't have a good hand for flowers I have decided to make few that I don't have to water:). Unfortunately my flowers had never survived to long with my sensitive care so I did't kept them very often, recently I  had to say goodbye to my thyme. My apartment is very dark now because I have reparations of the building this is very weak excuse... but...;p.
When I was a child underneath my balcony was growing Sweet Mock-orange, whole room was filled with its sweet aroma, every morning birds was twittering among its stems...Birds was so laud, even when windows were closed... It was wonderful times...

Flowers are made from white strips 0,15cm width and 105cm long, middle of flowers it made from yellow strips 0,15cm and 2,5cm. Leaves are made from two colors of green 0,15cm width. Frame was a gift so I don't know that it is old or made to look old... for the background I have used matte black paper.

Quilled casket egg

Again I'm in Easter topic...

 I know that Easter was long time ago, but I was curious if I could make egg that can be opened :). Egg half's are attached to a little hinge which allows to open the egg. Elements are made of paper strips 1,5mm except middle part of the hinge and paper strips are 3mm. I was using shades of green and yellow so the egg looks so spring :). Hinge was made from paper quills and toothpick, middle quills are loose and glued only to the top half of the egg. Quills at the ends are glued to the toothpick and bottom half of the egg. I've attached a little moon shaped element to the middle quills to make egg open only in half...

 I like warm and pleasant for the eye colors... and I'm looking forward to real green spring :). At the moment we  still have some snow left;p.

Quilled Easter egg

Because the Easter is near I decided to make more Easter eggs :). Here's another one :)

The quilled elements were assembled around an egg shell which I wrapped in plastic wrap. Strips in three shades of blue 1,5 cm width. First I made  half from the middle and later top half and glued them together at the end :).  The bottom half I started in the middle of egg shell with the strips in dark shade of blue .  It is very important to be careful making the second half to not glue them whet the egg is inside... 
Maybe I will make more pictures later...

Basket full of flower's

For my Mother's birthday I made basket with flowers...

Basket was made from two colors strips 0,3 cm and I think it is even resembles to the basket...;p I think...

Flowers are mostly in shades of violet... I made fringed flowers with the center of flower and without it. I made also a few white daisy's to avoid the monotony... Leaves are made from 0,15cm paper strips in two colors. This arrangement looks very nice :). 
Basket is quite small because flowers have 2cm diameter. Now I'm thinking about different flowers but still I have no idea what to do... maybe a sculpture or a picture...
Lilac I like the most but still I haven't an Idea for the composition with these particular flowers...maybe a hint? ;) 

We have spring now so it is a good time...:)
