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.
