Notecard Gift Box

Gift box ...Isn't that awesome idea to gift for any occasion..After purchasing my MS scoreboard, my search for these gift boxes tutorials are never ending ones...Picked up a tutorial which i bookmarked earlier and tried my first notecard gift box.

Wanted it to be simple and sweet..
More like NOEL theme colors...its comes out that way which is purely unintentional...Love it yet!

Explosion box and Miniature garden

Easy to guess from title...Yess.... i wish to quill a miniature garden in an explosion box. As the box is my first time try, i wanted to made it as simple one....

Few closer views

Made trellis with my MS layered arches punch. Climbers are made with floral wire which are covered with green floral tape. Leaves and flowers are from punches. Can you see that tiny one lying on grass...Oh yay...Quilled mushroom on several grass layers which are finely fringed ones from green cardstock. For fringing, i used Fiskars spring scissors, its really like a breeze if you are doing lots of fringing. The handle is made in such a way to ease the action and the spring used there gives such a comfort while fringing.
Butterflies are punched out. Decorated the lid with the tile punch and other punched out bits.

Hope you all like..

Quilled basket & flowers

This time i wanted to braid and weave...Oh yay done a quilled basket by weaving white strips and braided by interwining 2 white and 1 baby pink strips. Kind of monochromatic theme with support of White. Used different shades of pink in this project for base as well as for flowers. Flower centres are pink pearls, made 2 punched flowers, 2 open loop flowers and other quilled flowers.To give a popped up look, given foam adhesive backing to flowers and leaves are stuck only at midrib. The punched border is from a parchment paper and its matted with a pink cardstock below and a white handmade paper on top.

Simple Folded Paper Frame

Is this lovely...I have come out of my comfort zone of Quilling and started to explore the other forms of crafts too... Its just my trial with my new mini punches.

The flowers, butterflies, leaves and stamens are all punched out and for the first time tried to make this simple folded frame to give a popped up effect in card. Used my new MS scoreboard for scoring. Lavender, Light green, Blue, Baby pink, Orange,yellow colors are used for flowers. I have superimposed one above another to give a nice effect.
