Sparkles anyone?

Post by Heather on 2010-08-16, 03:08

I was using the peel-offs the other day to add the finishing touches to a card when I wondered about using them on quilling strips to add a little sparkle. I know you that you can buy quilling strips that have the gold and silver on the edges but I thought since I had a lot of strips as waste, I would see what I could do with them.

The scanner doesn't really show them to advantage so you will have to use your imagination to see the glitter in them. I didn't put the peel-off on the edge itself but rather at the top of the strips and then did the fringing.

The glory of this is that you can take the silver peel-offs and colour them any colour with Copic markers or Identi-pens. I used the daisy cuttlebug die for the large petals. Some of these flowers have straight strips and some had fancier edges.
