Quilling Class: Fabulous Flowers

Fabulous Flowers was a hit! We had so much fun in this class, it was a workshop length class which is 3 - 4 hours long, I taught them roses, fringed flowers - hand fringing and I let them all try out my fringer. I also taught them to create a husked flower. Let me just say, they loved the fringed flowers. The first fringed flower I chose to create out of Bazzill card stock in teal, ivory and a cocoa brown - they turned out soooo cute. We then learned roses, which was trickier; knew it was going to be but they all got it after 3 or 4 tries. Next was a husked flower with a mini fringed flower - as a challenge - they all did great on that too, in fact; a friend of mine took the class and she actually taught me a thing or two with the roses and a new way to fringe flowers - it was awesome. We had some free time so they took turns trying out my fringer machine, which they all agreed would be worth the money; and then a couple gals continued trying to make roses while a few others worked on more fringed flowers. It was fun!

Here are some photo's to show what they created. The first image is from the class, we did decide that roses are easier using 1/4" quilling strips instead of the 3/8" strips that we were using for the fringed flowers. A couple of my friends that had taken the class had so much fun, they went back to one of their houses and continued making the fringed flowers; the second photo shows what she created, I love her color combination. She said they were having a blast creating those flowers. Yippee!



Next month at Eclectica I'll be teaching a beginners class and a class on birthday elements, which should be fun. Well, seeing all these flowers makes me want to get fringing, I'll post some new things soon I'm sure.
