Hi everyone, I finally got this project finished....only a day late. :-) It is time for our Halfway Inspiration post over at Unstampabelles for this months challenge - Quilling. I was googling for something different to do and spied some vases. Then I saw this (below) amazing rainbow vase by Mary Jean and I used that as my inspiration. After following many links through Pinterest I discovered that Mary Jean has a Etsy store here with other beautiful pieces for sale.
I have a few photos of mine to share as I wanted to show off all the colours. This shot shows all sides from the top. To create my vase which stands about 6cm high. I used the leftover strips that came with my Quilled Love Bird kit and I cut strips using my paper cutter. This time I was able to use my quilling tool.
This made wrapping the circles much easier and quicker. When I had finished gluing all the shapes into place I remembered last time when I was quilling that there are gauges that you can put your circles in so that they all form the same size or the size you require.
I remember making up my own gauge using washers from the shed and gluing them to a piece of cardboard.
For the base of my vase I cut 7 circles using my Spellbinder die from a cereal box. I then glued each circle together to give a nice thickness to be able to glue the first layer of the vase too.
I would like to share this vase with:
