Quilled Butterfly Tutorial

I'm up today on the 3 Birds Studio Blog today with a quilled Birthday Greetings Card and Gift Set using the Graceful Season Quilled Cardmaking Kit. I have done a little bit of quilling in the past, but this kit has sparked a new found love! 

Inside this kit you will find everything you need to create gorgeous handmade cards. It contains quilling strips to create a variety of dimensional flowers and other basic quilled shapes, a quilling board, a quilling tool, a variety of cards and shadow box cards and a set of die cuts with sentiments and shapes. It also comes with a fantastic instruction guide filled with details, tips and techniques on how to create the dimensional flowers that are part of the kit along with many other basic quilling shapes. I'm telling you, this kit is amazing!!!

Quilled Butterfly Tutorial by Juliana Michaels using 3 Birds Studio Graceful Season Quilled Cardmaking Kit
When I began putting my card and gift set together for my 3 Birds Studio Blog post, I knew I wanted to added some butterflies to go along with the flowers. In my search to learn more I came across some amazing quilled butterflies on such sites as Pinterest. Some of these were so intricate and detailed that I knew immediately I wasn't ready for that level of quilling. I did however, put together a combination of different quilled pieces to create the butterflies I used on my shadow box frame.

After I completed my project, I thought it would be nice to produce a short video slideshow to share with you how I created my butterflies. This is my first time using iMovie, so please be kind. I don't have access to a video camera, so I put this together using photos. I hope you enjoy it and that it will inspire you to try your hand at quilling!
