I belong to several Yahoo quilling groups. If you want a constant flow of creative ideas and great quilling, I urge you to join.
The other day a very talented quiller, Lucia, posted some photos of some ornaments she had finished. They were glass balls with quilled Christmas designs inside. Obviously, they caught everyone’s eye and very quickly a discussion popped up as to how they are made. It turns out that they were constructed inside the ornament, much like a ship in a bottle, using tweezers.
I just had to give it a try with one of my snowflakes, although many quilling patterns would work. I have to admit that it was tricky, but I am so pleased with the results. I added some fake snow to give the ornament a bit more visual dimension and sparkle since it is clear glass.
I am definitely making more of these for the Christmas season.
Are you working on your holiday projects yet?
***Blog Post Update: I was going to keep the secret to making this amazing ornament all to myself, but you know me… I just love to share. You’ll find the downloadable pattern, priced at only $5.95, in the Quilling Pattern Store section of my blog.
