My first Quilling projects

Good Morning,
I couldn't wait to share this with you.  I tried quilling once several months ago but felt intimidated by it and stopped pursuing quilling until last week.  I saw this snowflake   here.  I normally do not care much about snowflake.  I think they are pretty but they never got my attention until I saw this one.  As soon as I saw it I stopped everything.  I got my paper and cutter out and started working.  After about two hours or may be longer I got my first quilled snowflake.  I used toothpick for my quilling tool.

I really like it a lot.  So, another  hour and a half later I got another one here.  I added a diamond shape between the circle.

After making the two snowflake. I wanted to try something else  and  I got this.  Impressive isn't it?  I know I can't believe myself either. (lol)  This thing is so addicted.
And look at this one.  Cute isn't it?

Thank you so much for visiting me again.  Have a nice day!

Very well done! You have nice even tension in your coils and I couldn't spot any stray glue. Thank you for sharing.

OK. Helen, you keep on making my case for me. Quilling snowflakes and pumpkins! But I will say in the end, they made for some very lovely cards! :) And how lucky were those kids to get those Halloween treat boxes? I don't do Halloween any more (the kid is 15), but those were cute! I guess you better get crackin' on those Christmas tree treat boxes, huh? I'll be back! R
