Miniature quilled bouquet
This time I'd like to show a simple piece, which is a tiny bouquet of quilled flowers — roses, daisies and fronds. Stems of the roses were made of pieces of wire wrapped in dark green paper, the same paper was used also for the miniature leaves. For the stem of each daisy I used two pieces of 1/16-inch wide (1.5 mm) paper strips glued together lengthwise. The leaves and fronds were made using narrow 1/16-inch wide strips, too. The vase was easy to make by employing the basic techniques of three-dimensional quilling. I put a small piece of polystyrene foam into the vase so that to thrust the roses into it. Some of the leaves and fronds are attached directly to the vase. Size from the bottom to the top edge of the roses is about 2 1/2 inches (6 cm). In the photo the bouquet is seen compared to a Plumeria flower.
