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 :)
