Quilling it Thursdays-Embellished Box-Envelopes

Hello, hello!!! Happy Thursday to all!
I've been truly busy these past weeks.  We finally began our Basement renovations and I am so excited to say that I will have an actual craft space down there.  No more dungeon looking room.  I will share pics as soon as everything is ready.  For today's project I want to show you how I embellished two of My Quilling Nest's  Box-Envelopes.  If you have purchased these and have made projects using them, I would love to see what you have made.  You can link them on this post, at the bottom on Mr. Linky.

Materials used on this one:
Michael's Recollections Textured paper for the Flower
Flower- Stampin Up Sizzix Fun Flowers Die
Stampin Up Seam Binding
Stampin Up Chocolate Chip stamp pad for the distressing around the Box-Envelope
Martha Stewart Micro Beads for the center of the flower 

Materials used on this one:
Michael's Recollections Textured paper
Stampin Up Circle Punch for the Rolled Roses
My Quilling Nest's Quilling Tool to roll the roses
Martha Stewart Rose Petal Punch
Tim Holtz Stamp pad to distress around Box-Envelope

If you would like to purchase a pack of the Box-Envelopes  you can do so HERE.
If you have made projects using these envelopes you can link up your projects on the bottom of this post.  I would love to see what you have made.

Quilled hugs to all and will see you again next time.

Rolled Flower Using My Creative Time's Dies

Happy Tuesday!!
A few days ago I was experimenting making larger flowers using the rolled flower dies from My Creative Time, and I loved the outcome.  The flowers I made are larger than the actual die cut.  Ms. Emma asked me to make a tutorial and as I promised her, here it is.  I have also added Mr. Linky to the bottom of this post, I would love to see your rolled flowers!!!  So here its the tutorial, let me know what you think!
Materials Used:
My Creative Time 'Rolled Flowers Die' (you can purchase it HERE)
My Quilling Nest's 'Quilling Tool' (you can purchase it HERE)
Any Type of Paper.  I used the Recollections textured paper.
Aileen's Tacky Glue

If you give these a try, I would love to see them.  Link up your project below.
Happy Crafting!
Quilled Hugs,
Linda K.
