Giveaway of Quilled Flowers & Paper Quilling Kit

March 30, 2012, 09:18 am  Posted by Lark
 

It’s spring! (Well, in western North Carolina it’s spring. Happy autumn, all you southern hemisphere folks.) Spring is such a joyful season: trees blossom overnight, birds and little critters celebrate the warming days, and the earth erupts with petals, leaves, and a cacophony of color. We’re joyful for spring because it marks the publication of Quilled Flowers by Alli Bartkowski—a celebration of paper quilling and 35 beautiful paper projects!

Quilled Flowers book, paper quilling kit, zinnia flowers

To celebrate the release of this gorgeous book, we’re hosting a giveaway! One lucky winner will receive:

A copy of Quilled Flowers; a kit of quilling tools and supplies to get you started; and three original quilled zinnia flowers made by Alli in the book! (These little beauties are perfect as gift toppers, as they’re just the right size for prettying up a package, envelope, or sweet little box.)

The quilling starter kit includes tools and materials manufactured by Alli’s quilling supply company, Quilled Creations:

-a slotted tool

-a needle tool

-a package of quilling paper in a rainbow of colors

-a 3-dimensional shaping tool (known as a mini mold)

 

This giveaway is closed–congratulations to Nimisha for being the winner!

To enter for a chance to win, please leave a comment on this post by 11:59 pm EST on Friday, April 6. Any comment is fine, though I’d love to hear about your favorite flower—why do you love it? One winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries and notified by Friday, April 13.

Click here for the official rules.

    Sacha Hall says:

    A friend and I were just talking about taking up quilling, so it would be great to win this kit, thanks for the opportunity!  My favorite flower is the checkered fritillaria, with Oriental Poppies coming in a close second.  

    Endless Collectabilities says:

    This looks so neat … I’ve never quilled before and would love to give it a try.  My favorite flower is the sunflower because it towers so high and seems to be singing when the wind blows.

    Margaret Malone says:

    I am a beginning quiller, and the finished project, even a very simple one is so unusual and beautiful. I want this book terribly to further my quilling abilities. I started with a small kit only. My favorite flower is the wild violet because they are so small and delicate and sort lived. You can only treasure them for a day or two once you pick them. The plant will spread all over an area, and when they bloom it’s a sea of little purtple beauty.

    Azngurl450 says:

    I just started quilling a few months ago and I fell in love with it. I love many hands on craft but quilling has got to be my favorite! I really hope I win! (:

    I plan on quilling with my son, who is ADHD and whom we are building concentration skills with. Art like this is so wonderful for this, for it’s planning and execution (although I would enjoy the flower book probably more than he would!).  

    These are so beautiful. I would love to learn how to make them!

    Those are gorgeous!  I’ve never heard of quilling. One of my favorite flowers is just a simple tulip, as far as looks. But I love the scent of gardenias and grape hyacinths.

    Dbruck52 says:

    Your poppies, violets, and foxglove are my favorites. Quilling is an interesting and precise art. I taught my third graders the initial steps some years ago but now, on my own I’d like to try your techniques not with paper but with clay.  Very nice, Thanks!

    Shelly says:

    This would be a great prize to win. I love Alli’s work. My favorite flowers in real life are lilacs and lilies but my favorite flowers to make out of paper are roses. I made all the flowers for my November 2011 wedding. I can’t even guess how many flowers I created!

    Nimisha Singh says:

    Along with every little thing that seems to be building throughout this specific area, a significant percentage of perspectives are quite radical. However, I beg your pardon, but I do not subscribe to your entire strategy, all be it exciting none the less. It looks to everybody that your remarks are generally not totally rationalized and in fact you are generally yourself not even completely convinced of your argument. In any case I did take pleasure in looking at it.

    Some truly interesting details you have written.Aided me a lot, just what I was searching for : D.
