Simple quilled flowers in a beveled frame
I created this simple arrangement of quilled flowers with daisies and cornflowers as a gift. I used 1/8"-wide strips for the leaves and petals, and 3/8" strips for the fringed flowers and flower centers. The fringe is very dense. I always try to put some quilled insect as a point of interest in my flower arrangements. This work isn't an exception — you can see a tiny green bug climbing the flowers.
To frame this picture I built a beveled paper frame using 140lb (300gsm) card stock, tinted with acrylic paint. Step-by-step for a frame like this can be found in "How to make a beveled picture frame out of paper". Size of the finished picture is about 10 1/8 x 7 1/4 inches (25.8 x 18.5 cm).
Люблю такие ромашки.

Also, take a look at this tutorial, it’s in Russian, but the pictures can help you understand the method. She puts a stopper strip made of cardstock onto the strip of paper she’s cutting, and then cuts quickly and densely. This requires some practice though.
