I just had so much fun making this birdcage and little bird quilling them...I started last Monday and little by little assembled the little shapes.
I was stumped just a few minutes ago as to how to go about propping the bird up but I found a way with a paperclip and some persuasion.
This I made in honour of Molly Smith, the wonderful quiller and published author who is going to be on my show PaperMood.com with Fab tonight at 9pm Eastern, it's hosted by Creative Edventures Linqto room. So see you then !

I was recently asked to create some samples for a new product : MCS Fab Glam Fifties CD. The cards I made were well received during the airing of the shows this week on Ideal World and Create & Craft. I thought I would share this one with you as I used some quilling for the corners and using the same colours strips of papers as the main toppers seem to have done the trick.
I had lots of fun making this card and the CD is easy to use to print the pictures of background papers needed. You can see the rest of the cards on my other blog 'Craftingmad'. I hope you enjoy them.
My first quilling project is a rather extravagant one. This is my second project, actually; The first one went to my foster mom as a Christmas gift in 2005. I loved it so much, I had to make one for myself. I began this project at the beginning of October, and had it completed in time to give for Christmas.
The lily petals and leaves were all cut and formed by hand. The only part of this project that is not quilled or using quilling paper, is the babies' breath, which was created using a flower punch. I pressed the centers in using a stylus and a piece of craft foam. And of course, a floral scene just wouldn't be complete without a touch of Mother Nature's creatures. You can see a dragonfly in one corner, and a bee in the other.
|My first attempt at quilling ! :) (by Fab)|
This is my first attempt at quilling, I remember being so proud of it ! :)
Upon looking more closely, I noticed a small paper weight with a quilled rose inside. I knew this was something I could figure out. I absorbed what I had seen into my mind, returned home with only a few packages of paper and a quilling tool, and begin my journey, with no book to aid me.
