My second online Quilling lesson at My Creative Classroom was this week and we learned to make fringed flowers and scrolls and lots of fun things. Now being the anal person that I am, I don't cut the fringes by hand, I have a cool little 90 degree Fringer. Have had it for quite some time but did not know what to do with it. As you can see, I had a lot of fun. I included a ruler in the pic to give you an idea of the size of these flowers. They sit up about 3/8 - 1/2 inch high. Now on to my project.
I have wanted to use my new Cheery Lynn Designs Mega Tea Party die, it is a whopping 7 5/8" in diameter and was just the right size for the top of this cookie tin. I used my new Tiffany Border around the base of the tin and my Inverted Scallop Circle Stackers Nesting die for the dotted center panel.
Since I am making this a dog cookie tin, of course I had to use my Karen's Doodles Basset Girl, I just love this digi image. On a side note, Karen is having a blog hop to showcase her new Christmas images, check it out for a chance to win the digis. Back to my tin, I colored up the sweet basset with Copics, trimmed her out and then added my beautiful flowers in an arc. As you can see I also added some quilled leaves and scrolls. This was such a fun project and I love making these flowers. I can't wait to incorporate them into my other creations.
