Christmas quilling

I've been busy finishing up some Christmas quilling and I thought I'd take a few minutes this morning and post a few pictures. These are ornaments that I made. Since they're ornaments, they're the same on each side.

This poinsettia is 5 layers when all is said and done.

Rudolph is decked out with poinsettias, a bell, and a red swarovski crystal nose that doesn't show up well in this photo, but sparkles quite nicely in real life! He also has a touch of white on his tail.

I wanted to give Mr. Snowman a corncob pipe and a carrot nose, but these ornaments were made to go into cards so they couldn't be TOO thick, so he had to be a non-smoker and his nose, like his eyes and mouth is made of coal. But his scarf, which you can't see here, is fringed, and has a nice curve to it.

Santa was shone in an earlier post. Here he is again to show how I did the cards. Nothing complicated - just mulberry paper that has gold strands throughout used as a background. I have this paper in green, red, and white - I used the best color for each ornament. I tied a long ribbon and looped it over the top, attached it using "Wackytac," which is similar to "GlueDots." This way the receiver can easily remove it, shorten the ribbon, if desired, and hang on their tree.

NaBloPoMo is NoMo But I Am Still Here


I was going to take the day off, but here I am... I just felt like I HAD to make a note. So hey everyone. Maybe I'll see you tomorrow, maybe not. Is this an addiction?
