Some quilling for my daughter's wedding

As I had indicated earlier this week, here are some of the items I made for my daughter's wedding. Everything is made of either 1/4" or 1/8" wide strips of pearlized paper that are 24" long. All of the flowers and leaves are handmade and the bells are made from the paper as well. The colors for the wedding were olive and ivory and I can honestly say I never got tired of working with these colors. I hope you enjoy viewing my quilling and please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

This was the topper for the wedding cake.

These are the small votives. I made 65 of these!

This is the memorial candle for some very special people in the kid's lives.This is the large votive. It stood 13 inches tall and I made 20 of these.
