Quilled Princess Card and Simple Pop up Cake

Quilled Princess Card
Though I do a lot of crafting with my 5 year old daughter I haven't really let her quill much.Recently I thought we would quill together! 
Quilling with kids
We decided to make a Princess in the garden card! Its a kiddy type card and I kept it fairly simple so that my little helper could help to stick the quilled flowers.Here is my Kiddo planning the card.
Quilling with Kids
She has very definite views on how to embellish a card and most of the times her ideas are awesome!
Quilled Princess Card
A tip if you want to let young kids quill- let them make tight coils or the green bottoms of the flowers like we have made here- then the imperfections dont show and it will still look lovely.
Quilled Flowers
 Oh this is my first card with stamping too! Used stamps won in dear blogger friend Jessica's giveaway.
Quilling and Stamping
This is a closeup of our quilled Princess. All little girls love Princesses and mine of course wanted a pink one!When I made the quilled princess I didn't have pink quilling strips so had to hand-cut the strips hence do forgive the imperfections.
Quilled Princess
Here is how we made our quilled Princess. There are a lot of quilling pros out there and I am just sharing  our simple quilled girl for the benefit of the "non-experts"! The face and body are loose coils.We made the skirt with 3 tear drops and added inverted hearts for the border of the quilled girls skirt.
Quilled Princess
To give the skirt volume and an added 3 D effect we added 2 large hearts and a small heart for a 2nd layer.

Quilled Princess
On top of the 2nd layer of the skirt we added a single heart and added pearls to glamorize our Princess's ball gown!
Quilled Princess
The eyes,nose and mouth of our Quilled Princess were drawn with glitter glue.I used tiny bindis for the gems on the crown. For the benefit of my non-Indian readers, bindis are stickers popularly used by Indian women to adorn the forehead and they come in a fantastic range of different sizes and shapes.
Quilled Card
As my blogger friends know I love to add an interactive element. Nothing elaborate this time just a simple pop up cake to celebrate a little Princess's birthday.

As always do leave me your comments on what you think about our quilled card and pop up cake.I know it has a lot of imperfections and I almost didnt post it then I thought --let it be! So do be kind!!

Edited: Our Quilled Princess card came in top 3 at Sentimental Sundays
