Recycled Ribbon Spool Quilling Card

Published by at 6:00 pm under Quilled Card,quilling

quilledribbonspoolcardHere is a delightful card that uses an empty ribbon spool as the card base.  A message strip is attached to the core, wound around the spool, and secured with a piece of ribbon tied into a bow.  The lucky recipient then unties the bow to unroll the greetings.  I guarantee that this card will be a keeper!  Since I wanted larger flowers, I used strips of scrapbook paper cut to various widths and hand fringed them.

Since I firmly believe in giving credit where it is due, I must mention that I ran across this clever idea by Alison Eads in the paper crafting book, Retro Mania, published by North Light Books.  The quilling design that decorates this card, however, is all mine.

    Super great idea! So neat and so bright! Plus, you get to reuse the ribbon spools. I think it would look great even with a wider spool, for a longer/bigger written message…

    I guess I have to start collecting spools so I can try this one of a kind card. I am sure my friends will be amazed by this unique idea. Thank you for sharing
