Pat's Birthday gift

Good Morning,

I loved the box that I made for Patti Lee so I made another one.  This one is in purple because my friend Pat's favorite color is purple.  This is for Pat's birthday.

I always made six petals flower because it is easier to do a six petals flower then a five petals flower at least for me.  So for this box I made the flower with only 5 petals.  The box is smaller than the last one I made for Patti Lee.  I  used only two match boxes and I glued them the long way.

Here are the inside.  A pair of quilling earring and a  matching necklace.

Here is a closer look at the quilling jewelry.

The circles that I used are called eccentric.  It is a lot prettier than the lose coil. Here is how I made them.
I used two pins for each coil.  One pin to hold the coil in place and the other pin was to move the center to the side and add a tiny bit of glue and pin it in place.  Wait until the glue dry about 15-20 or less. 

Then take them out and pinched them on one side to make tear drop shape.  I didn't need grid paper when I made the six petals flower.  I learned this trick from quillingMagic.   Using the punch for the flower was a great help!



I hope you've enjoyed today post.  
Have a lovely day!

Hi Helen! Another Helen here (from IL) who just joined your blogspot to follow. I love the little set of earrings, necklace and matching box that you've made - you're a lady after my own heart. They are quite simple but so sweet. I don't have a blogspot yet. My only site is here: Most of my pins have to do with quilling by others, and ideas for quilling, since I want to encourage and inspire quillers worldwide in their work. I belong to several Quilling Guilds and Facebook quilling groups. So many, in fact that it all keeps me too busy to quill much! That will change soon when I begin to spend more time on my own inspirations and quilling. Thanks for showing the Tut! hugs, Helen
