Here is something I found on another blog, Suzy's Artsy-Craftsy Sitcom. (Love her blog! Lots of brilliant ideas!!) She has a lot of cute quilling projects and I love how diverse (and frugal) her different projects are.
Okay, below is my attempt at the Quilled Monogram. I really liked this, but I'm tired of accumulating stuff only to have to move it in 6 months, so I decided to make it as a wedding present for some friends. Weddings are great for that. I try a new craft, and someone else reaps the rewards--as long as it works! Hopefully my friends like it. :) And yes, I even made the actual letter. From a cardboard box I had left over from moving. Here's how:
First, I cut apart the box so I had two big areas (with no folds or creases) to work with. There were a bunch of left over pieces that I used later. Then I drew my letter--in this case an "H" on one of the big areas. You could also use a template printed out from the computer. I tried that, but couldn't find one that I liked. So I ended up free handing the H using a ruler.
Best part? Yeah, I didn't spend any money on it. Nada, Zilch, Nothing! Yahoo! Lest you think I am the cheapest person alive, I did also get her a nice little sumthin' sumthin' for her bridal shower. :) Her husband will thank me later! :D hehehe...
