Roses Roses Roses!

I will be sharing the technique of folded roses at the January Quilling Club meeting (Monday, Jan. 21st from 6:30-8:00 pm @ Paper Pals). Here are a few more photos of past orders/projects to inspire you!

A card featuring patterned vellum overlay with oval aperture.

Small 3.5" wooden trinket box, treated with sealant
so the folded paper roses look almost like porcelain.

Antiqued rose frame (some strips were hand-dipped in tea or wine for soft shading and aging before being formed into roses.)

Rose frame using some hand-cut vellum strips and shades of pink paper strips, lending a very soft, romantic look.

Removable swag created for a customer. I believe she intended to use it on a card.

A baby gift for Evelyn, the granddaughter of a friend, along with coordinating vellum gift bag.

A gift of 10 blank notecards, in the bride's wedding colors (perfect for the special 'thank you' notes she needed to write) .

Valentine's Day is just around the corner! Are you seeing the possibilities?! It may look complex, but many people have used my modified technique and report amazing success. Even my 9-year-old daughter was able to create respectable results...and she's a lefty to boot.

No previous quilling experience needed.

Call Karen at Paper Pals soon to sign up for class! (208-883-4287)
