I've been very intrigued by paper quilling for quite some time now. I finally gave-in and purchased a quilling kit over the weekend and I'm hooked!  Smiley

Here are my first 2 attempts:

A sunflower:



and an orchid:



They're not perfect, but they were loads of fun to make and I can't wait to get started on a third design  Cheesy

Edit: Just finished my third card - a cherry blossom card

Both flowers look good. You could make cards with them.

Inspiration without application is moot.

I've often admired quilling before, and your's are just spectacular. You seem to have taken to this craft like a true artist.

I love the cherry blossom one!  Great work.  I might have to try this at some point . . . not that I have the time to add another craft, but what the hey?
