Quilled Snowflake Earrings

Hello Bloggers!

Today I have two pairs of quilled snowflake earrings to share.
The paper strips that I used for these earrings had two sides.  A touch of silver on one side and plain white on the other side.

I am adding these to my Etsy shop.

Thank you for stopping by again today.

My New Toy - Mini Paper Shredder

Hello Bloggers!

I'm back again. I am so excited to share with you my new toy. I first saw this hand powered mini paper shredder at Lin Handmade greeting card.  I knew I got to have one and I finally bought it.   I absolutely love it! I don't know why I didn't order it sooner.  I would have saved  lots of money on quilling strips.  I guessed it cost to learn. I highly recommended if you are enjoying quilling.  It cut about 1/8 inch strips which are perfect for quilling.

Now I can have any color of quilling strips I want.  Think of the $$$ that I will be saving from cutting my own quilling strips and that means more new toys for me, yay!

  I tried cutting different types of paper and double sides pattern papers were the best.

Here are a few snowflakes that I had made using the strips that I cut from my new toy.

I love the ridge  (is that the correct word for it) from the blade.  It added  nice texture to the snowflakes.  These snowflakes were made from 65 lb. card stock.  When the card stock ran through the shredder, it got softened and that made it easier to roll the strips.

I bought this mini paper shredder from here.  The price was reasonable and  it offered  free shipping.  Check it out if you had been cutting your own quilling strips.  This little thing could save you lots of times and no the company didn't pay me anything for this little promotion.

Thank you for looking!  Wishing everyone who celebrate Thanksgiving a Very Happy one!

Until next time!

Elegant Altered Quilling Frame

Hello Bloggers!

  I haven't forgotten about you my blogger friends.  I just don't have time to spare.  Between 3 young kids, their school work, house work, my part time job,  and my craft shows, I have no time left to browse the web. So bare with me I will visit you wonderful blogs when I am done with my craft shows.  I only have a few  more to do. :)

Here is today sharing.

Please excuse the not so good photo.  I haven't take a single decent photo lately. I don't know if it was me or I need a new camera.

Lots Of Kusudamas

Hello Bloggers!

I am still around. I haven't fall off blog land yet.  I took time off from blogging because I was busy making these

Here are more

And here are five more that I am working on

I made about 20 of them.

Here is how I assembled them. I folded all the pieces that I need.  Then I glued each piece and I used paper clips to hold the piece together.

After the glue dried, about 5 - 10 minutes, I took them  off the paper clip and pushed them open and glued 2 pieces together like shown

I waited until the glue dried, then I glued that 2 pieces together
I waited again until the glue dried then I glued the last piece in to make the petal or whatever you called that 5 petals piece.

Although the petals looked the same, but they were not.  Once the glue is completely dried, I took the 12 petals and tried to fit them together like a puzzle.

They are beautiful but my favorite are the white and the purple one.
