Beautiful coasters with paper quilling in colors of rainbow

Created by : Amrita Singh

I love rainbows. They are one of the nature's creations that bring a smile on every one's face regardless of age. Somehow they also remind me of my childhood and care free days of summer.

It took more than 100 quilling strips and quite a while of rolling I would say to finish these coasters :) . I did follow the rainbow colors sequence inside out ... remembered my childhood days and how we used the acronym VIBGYOR  to remember the rainbow colors in sequence.

 It was also part of a challenge in one of  ETSY teams, ETSY paper's  rainbow challenge. Its a group of very talented people and it was fun to see various rainbow creations.

Here's a beautiful poem ...enjoy and have a Happy Day!

God is the greatest artist
To whom no one can compare,
Streaking sunsets very beautiful,
Painting rainbows in the air.

Brushing green the hillside scene,
Blotting blue the sky above,
Splashing flowers 'cross the ground beneath,
Shading white clouds with His glove.

Of the wonders God has made
There is none that is so fair
As the smile He paints upon your face
When you realize He's there.
                        - Udiah

Welcome Baby Girl Card with Paper Quilling

Created by : Nimisha Singh

It is always wonderful to create unique greeting cards for New Parents or Expectant Parents. I am sure this card will bring smile on the face of the recepients.I loved making this cute paper quilling card to welcome a Baby Girl. The quilled Baby stroller, beautiful pink feet, baby bottle, and a cute yellow duck make this a perfect baby card.

This handmade paper quilling card is a gift in itself. Many recipients choose to frame it in a shadow box and use as a keepsake for baby’s room d├ęcor.

I had given a similar card to one of my friends and their appreciation inspired putting this on our online Etsy Shop.
