Quilled Butterfly- Beaded Flowers

Quilled Butterfly
Hi friends sharing yet one more of our series on Teachers day gifts.This time I embellished the recycled CD cases with beaded flowers and quilled butterflies.
Quilled Butterfly
I used Pritesh beehive tutorial to make this quilled butterfly.[Click this link for another quilled butterfly project ]
Used this Beaded flower tutorial to make a bouquet of  beaded flowers
Beaded Flowers
Here is the complete set of Recycled CD case notebook holder,matching notebook and pen in this Teachers Day gift
Teachers Day gift
Here is how we made the matching pen with the matching pattern paper in this years Teachers Day gift
Teachers day gift
I got some cute finger length sized pens and took apart the pen to make the matching pen in this gift set for Teachers day
Teachers Day gift
My little one helped make the pens by rolling the paper on the inner refill.We then inserted the refill back in the pen and chopped off the excess paper.
I hope this post is useful as an idea for handmade gifts.
Do tell me how you like it.

    1. Thank you so much Suman. I had seen these pens somewhere and thought it was difficult..it does involve a bit of dexterous paper rolling but the effect is cool!
