Quilling Paper Pots?

Hi everyone! I am still working like madwoman on my Alice project which I PROMISE I will post pictures of soon...really....

In the meantime I have a question about a recent blog entry I read.

A week or so ago, I was scanning blogger and came across a post where the miniaturist was making plant pots out of quilling paper. I have done this before but what was different about hers was that she then coated with, I think, gesso to give them not only strength but texure. While I thought I bookmarked this interseting project, apparently I did not because now I cannot locate it again.

Does anyone follower a blogger with such project?? I know it sounds like a Casey project but I couldn't find it on her blog so I am at a loss. If anyone recalls it, could you please leave a comment?

Thanks,

Tabby

Ah! Thank you Miss Merry Jingle! I have followed her blog and I had a little inkling it was hers but I guess I just didn't go back far enough.

So now I have a quick project for the mini-club when my turn comes up soon!

Glad Ira came to the rescue. I had seen that tutorial but couldn't recall where it was and I intend to try it also. I still have quilling paper amongst all of my mountain of stuff.

Jody, I don't know why I have such a large stash of quilling paper but I do and now I can move some of it! I think it was from my "paper snowflake" ohase. Some of it still has the price tag on it ( and is unopened) from a town I haven't lived in since my almost 18 y/o son was 4! Pathetic, really.....

Good that I could help, I've always wanted to try quilling, but don't have a papercutter and I haven't seen any quilling paper in stores here in Finland. And I'm way too lazy to cut it with scissors :D

I saw that tutorial as well and it is really good.

I used to make bowls like this a looong time ago. They look really effective.
