Project notes: Refer to photos when forming quilled shapes. Use a fine-tip glue applicator or toothpick to place glue on ends of quilling paper when securing quilled shapes. Tweezers can be used to place quilled shapes onto card.
Form a 41/4 x 51/2-inch card from white cardstock.
Cut a 5 x 6-inch panel of watercolor paper. Paint an oval of clear water in center of panel; load brush with pink paint and swirl it onto water allowing color to move around. Set aside to dry.
Place 41/4 x 51/2-inch Large Stitched Rectangle die centered on top of watercolor oval; run through die-cutting machine. Adhere to card front.
Using electronic cutting machine, size teacup shape to a height of 21/2 inches and cut from white cardstock.
Outline teacup with marker. Stamp sentiment onto cup as shown. Adhere to card with foam squares.
To create beehive quilling, use quilling tool to curl end of one paper strip. Measure approximately 1/4 inch from first curl and insert strip into quilling tool. Roll strip toward first curl; carefully slide out tool. Measure 1/4 inch down quilling strip; insert tool and roll up (Photo 1). Continue along entire length of strip.
Repeat step 6 with five more quilling strips.
For outer rings, wrap a quilling strip three times around a thick marker. Glue end, then slide ring off marker and shape as shown (Photo 2).
Repeat step 8 five more times.
Tuck as much of each curled strip into each ring as possible; trim ends as needed and tuck into rings (Photo 3). Use tweezers to help arrange curls as needed.
Arrange completed quilled pieces as shown on top of teacup to create a succulent plant. Secure with small dots of glue.
