The author includes some interesting facts about each flower and suggest several projects for each one.
Miniature Quilling by Diane Crane On the Cover of the book are pictures of Crane's QUILLED chocolates! I can usually spot quilling a mile away, but this is incredible! They look so much like the real thing that I couldn't wait to turn the pages to see how she did it. They would be perfect to put in those little quilled cake boxes everyone has been talking about, but I'm afraid people would end up with a mouthful of paper! Those of you who have Diane's other books will remember how she likes to do "variations on a theme" by repeating but subtly changing designs on her cards. She does it again in this 48 page book using adorable fairies, a great selection of autumn leaves, butterflies, daisies and lavender, and of course chocolates! Mmm . . . these are the no calorie kind. I enjoy her books, she definitely thinks outside the box . . . and speaking of boxes, I wonder where she got the template for the six sided one in her book?
Quilled Borders and Motifs by Judy Cardinal has some adorable patterns for borders, cars, and tags. Patterns include baby themed designs, wedding, butterflies, and toys to name a few. Also included are Christmas, flowers, pond and sky ideas (as in moons, stars,rocket ships and spaceships)!
Three Dimensional Quilling by Jane Jenkins includes whimsical finger puppets, 3-D frogs and other "critters", an adorable poodle, fairies and angels. I always enjoy Jane's originality; looking at her work inspires me to try something new. Even if you already own one of these books, here’s your chance to pick up the other three at a substantial savings.
