Quilling wall hanging

Hello!

Today I had a fun filled day... My dear friend Priyanka called me at her place for lunch. We sat, ate, played carom, Uno and last but not the least... gossiped too.. ;)

She cooked some yummy dishes for us. Thank you Priyanka, if you are reading this.

She is an awesome friend of mine. I thought of gifting her something as it was my 1st visit to her place. She likes my crafting creations a lot so obviously the gift has to be a handmade one by me.

This is what I made and gifted.... A quilled wall hanging...



I weaved handmade paper strips (from Handpaper Co.) to make the base. They are quite sturdy. Then randomly made swirls by quilling strips, made some quilled flowers, leaves, bells and other shapes, punched few flowers, gave the last finishing touch and VOILA!!! Wall hanging is ready!

Here are few close-ups... Fringed flowers...


Quilled butterfly on a frame (from itsy-bitsy)... with a sentiment "Love..." (Handwritten)


I also made a handmade paper bag to pack the wall hanging but I forgot to take the pic :( ...

Please provide your thoughts on this creation of mine...
I am off to sleep now... Good night and sweet dreams... :)

Love n wishes,
Priya...
