3D quilled princess reading a book

Quilled princess with book

Let me introduce to you a new character in my collection of three-dimensional quilled miniatures. This is a princess in a fancy dress. It's hard to call this miniature a masterpiece, but my girls love playing with her, and this is most rewarding to me. The lower part is made up of two layers: the base is a quilled bell (beehive) of 1/8" strips decorated with "eyes" and tight coils; on top of it there's another layer, which consists of wheatear shapes created using 1/16"-wide paper strips. The crown is decorated with tiny rhinestones, as well as the pendant. The book is made of small colored paper sheets, about 3/16 x 3/16 inches each (5 x 5 mm). I decided not to create facial features this time. Height: approx. 3 inches (7.5 cm).

This is beyond CUTE!!! I will have to give a try at 3D quilling when my grandaughter gets old enough to not destroy it!! I'm sure your daughters will treasure them because they were made with love by their momma!

She is darling and also a good example for your girls by showing her reading a book! Reading, stories and imagination are so integral to greater understandings! Excellent design!
