This is my first "real" post on craftster, so I'm not exactly sure if this is where it goes. This is a bonsai tree i did a few months ago with inspiration from a googled image. Hope you like it! Sorry about the big picture! When i make it small it looks terrible!

Wow, I can't belive that it took only half an hour or so.  It looks so fiddly and intricate.  It is stunning.

Wow, I love that!

Most of the quilled pieces I've seen have been small/simple.  It may not have taken you all that long to do it, but it looks SO intricate!

Well, pretty much its a little stick with a split end, and you put the paper in the split. Then you curl it up, and shape it to what you want. Then you simply glue it to place.
