Quilled Daffodils For The Cupcake Craft Challenge

The challenge this week at Cupcake Craft Challenges was an inspirational picture, which you can use as a theme, or as a colour scheme, or in any other way you like. The picture is of yellow flowers, which made me think of daffodils, probably because I noticed this morning that I have one daffodil out in my garden!

So I decided to go with a daffodil and spring-like theme.

I made some quilled daffodils, mounted them on pale yellow dotted swiss Bazzill, then pale green pearlescent paper then the Bazzill again. I played around with various ribbons etc but decided that it actually looked better with less on it, so just added a small dot of Eucalyptus stickles to the inside corners to finish it off.

  2. I love your quilling - it's something I've never tried - I'm sure it's either very calming or very frustrating!
