Miniature 3D quilled tea set

Quilled cup, cake and teapot

I've been creating three-dimensional quilling recently. This is one of my new miniatures — a quilled tea set and a cupcake with cherry. The set includes a tiny teapot, cup, and saucer. I often saw similar designs on the Internet, but had never thought of making one myself. However, the idea came in handy when I needed to make a gift. I knew it had to be something other than flowers, and a decorative tea set seemed to fit the bill perfectly. I quilled also a cupcake to make the whole set more lively.

This miniature was created using mainly 1/8"-wide strips (3mm). I also used some 1/16"-wide (1.5mm) and even narrower strips for the teaspoon, teapot lid, cherry and cream on top of the cupcake.

When the set was ready, I had to find a way to pack it nicely. Luckily, I found a small tea box, which became an ideal packaging for my present. The receiver seemed to be very happy with the tiny gift :)

פשוט מדהים! אין לי מילים.. ובכלל כל הבלוג שגיליתי אותו לאחרונה.. אני פשוט נהנית לראות את כל הדברים האלה שאת יוצרת.. ועושה רק חשק יותר ויותר!

יש לי שאלה קטנה, לא קשורה לפוסט הזה. ראיתי קישור לגבי המכשיר Silhouette SD. עד לא מזמן התלבטתי לגבי מכשירים מסוגים שונים שיכולים לחתוך כל מיני צורות ואותיות וכו', וזה פשוט כבש אותי. וסוף סוף הצלחתי להחליט שאת זה אני הכי רוצה.

ואז גיליתי באתר שלהם, שאין משלוחים לישראל :(
אוף זה כל כך מבאס. ואני חייבת להשיג את זה.

אולי את יודעת אם בכל זאת יש דרך להשיג את זה? ניסיתי לחפש באינטרנט מיקומים אחרים ולא מצאתי.

אשמח לכל תגובה שלך.
ופשוט אל תפסיקי ליצור, אני נדהמת בלי סוף ממך.
אני צופה בהמון בלוגים. ואת אחת המדהימות..

פשוט וואו!

סורי על החפירה, ותודה מראש (:

И как это я такую красоту пропустила! невероятная работа!
Ложечка меня просто убила. Не верю, что можно сделать такое!

Inna (Crafts, Kids, Quilling) said...

L¨As Créations, thank you!

רונה
תודה רבה על כל המחמאות!
לצערי אני לא יודעת איפה ניתן לקנות מכשיר כזה. בארץ בכלל יש בעיה לקנות כלים, מכשירים וחומרים מיוחדים ליצירה אפילו באינטרנט, וזה באמת מבאס :(

Pastila
Спасибо большое за комплименты!

Please have a look at this.
That's pretty much you need to know to make 3D miniatures. The elements are always the same. Read also this comment for additional explanations. Practice and try to figure out how to put the elements together.
