Quilled Flower Blooms on Recycled Clock

Quilled Flowers
This is my first major quilling work.It is a recycling work as the quilling is done on a clock which had broken down . I removed the clockwork mechanism and lined the inside with blue corrugated paper for the background.The major part of the paper used is recycled from magazine covers, medication pamphlets, old wedding cards etc.
Spiral Roses
The spiral roses are made from a recycled wedding card
Quilled eccentric flower
I am just learning to make eccentric coils and this is a sort of maiden attempt at an eccentric coil flower.The orange paper was hand cut from a medication pamphlet.
Heart Punch flower
One of my favorite heart punch flowers.Check out the tutorial how to make the heart punch flat folding flower.
Quilled Butterfly
The pink flower is made out of multiple sun punched tiny suns.The quilled butterfly is adorned with a favorite heart shaped pearl which I got from a local shop.
Punch Craft flowers
These pink flowers are a personal favorite.They are made out of 5 circles overlapped and glued on a small paper base.
Eccentric Coil Quilled Flower
This orange flower is an eccentric col with heart shaped pearls
Quilled Fringed Flower
I have again recycled the lovely orange medication pamphlet to create this shiny fringed flower
Punched Flowers
The punch craft flower has been punched out from a wedding card.I always keep wedding cards to recycle.
Quilled Leaves
I tried out the technique of combing while making the leaves.They were the first quilled strips I had bought[ so far I was hand cutting everything!]

Quilled Leaves
Different shades of greenery all from recycled cards,magazine covers ,packages what not!I have inserted the leaves and stems into the cream colored corrugated paper at the base.

This project is the first major quilling work I have done. Do post your comments would love to hear from you.

    PS: Distressed effect is given to paper to make it look old and give it more character.

  34. When do you have time for all of this!!! I think it took you ages to complete all those details! Amazing work! Love the heart flower though... I will go cut out some hearts right now and do it...tooo cute! :) And your off-center quilling looks great! I am so happy to see you use up so many recycled stuff! I used to do that also... then as I got more US "tools" everything became less fun than what you do... so KEEP IT UP!
