Episode 11: Quilling with the Imagine

For my design team project for Creative Critterz Imaginations this week, I wanted to try something different. Yesterday I was in a quilling blog hop, and I quilled for the first time, with the help of a Cuttlebug Quilling Kit. It was very fun and got me thinking about quilling patterned paper that I could create on the Imagine.

I had a wooden spool leftover from some Papertrey Ink button twine, and I thought it could make the perfect little "flowerpot". I just printed a patterned rectangle from the Imagine, cut it to size, and adhered it to the spool with Scotch Quick Dry. Some gold ribbon, a cheery big red button, and some button twine were the perfect embellishments.

For my flowers, I printed more patterned rectangles (double-sided) that I die cut with my Cuttlebug and the quilling dies. I knew the whole process would be very difficult to explain, so I made a little video. The two cartridges that I used for patterns were the Imagine More and the Imagine More Cards cartridges.

Adorable. I have seen those at the craft store, but was too afraid to try them. Thanks for the video, so now I will hopefully try them when the next good sale comes along.
