Quilled butterfly in a shadowbox
This quilled butterfly was inspired by the awesome creations of Claire Choi. It's a birthday present for my husband. I printed out a photo of a Papilio ulysses butterfly and used it to draw the pattern. The both wings were assembled at the same time on a cork board, covered with wax paper. As always, I used hand-cut paper strips.
Around the butterfly I added my favorite double fringed flowers. The design is framed into a 14x14 cm (5 1/2 x 5 1/2'') deep IKEA frame.
