Paper Quilling

Today I'm sharing another old craft kit I put to use -
paper quilling ! 

When I bought this oh so long ago, 
I did make a couple of the cards to attach
to wedding and baby shower gifts.
Then the kit sat there as over the years I
started rubber stamping.

The finished cards are quite small at 2" x 2 1/2"
and are very lightweight, made on parchment paper.

Here are some closeups:

The instructions called for this to have yellow teardrop leaves.
 I cut some tiny scraps of green mulberry paper instead
and make a small black circle for the center.
It reminds me of the wildflowers on our back hill.

Am I a bad Mom for not feeling too bad about turning my sons old bedroom into a craft room last month? That's where I made these cards - and it was so much nicer than being in the dark old craft dungeon basement ! I had fresh air coming in a window since it was "cool" by normal summer heat standards that day and lots of sunlight bouncing off of the freshly painted white walls.

Thanks for looking =)
