Quilled Christmas Wreath

With a classic Christmas colour combination of red, green, and white, it was actually hard to come up with the idea for my card for this week's Merry Monday prompt. Netflix recently added Grey's Anatomy and while binge-watching the first season I got some quilling done, and let my idle mind decide where to go with it :)


Supplies: quilling paper; Wplus9 banner die; stampendous sentiment; Festive Berries distress ink


I used 3" and 1.5" strips of quilling paper to achieve the two different leaf sizes. The berries were made with 3" strips. And the banner is attached using a double layer of foam tape, folded & arranged so the flag ends give some dimension. You can see a little better in this photo that there are two layers of quilling - after letting the first 'round' dry, I went back & filled it in for a fuller wreath. 




xoxo,
Jessi

Your quilling abilities are awesome. But even more impressive is that you got the wreath in a perfect circle. No lopsidedness for you, oh no!
