More quilling

 The new flower dies from Crafters companion can create so many different looks. I love making boxes and thought that some of these flowers would really finish off a plain white box.

 The dies I used were the large and small rose. I used some of the 12X12 fairyopolis papers for the flowers and used contrasting colours for some added effect. For the stamens on these flowers I took some copper wire and made coils out of it and the finished result was very effective.

There are stamen dies available which create a very different look. Why not pop over to the Crafters Companion website and take a look. There is even a you tube video with the wonderful leann Chivers demonstrating how to make the flowers and showing lots of other dies in the range.
