March Papertwirlies Team Challenge - Quilly Nilly

Throughout the month of March we will be featuring the creative solutions from the Paper Twirlies team for our "Best Dressed" challenge. This week please take a look at Quilly Nilly's pretty floral name cards.


Tell us how your item fits the theme: Best "Dressed"
Recently I created a list of items I'd like to create and get up in my shop, name cards just happened to on my list - I had created one set for the fall awhile back and really enjoyed working on them. I love the idea of walking into a party/dinner and looking to see where I'm seated, like a game or surprise. This months PaperTwirlies Team challenge was perfect - it gave me an excuse to get working on some name cards. Who wouldn't love to see their name on these pretties!

I have always been artistic, drawing on whatever paper I could get my hands on - as I got older I still loved being creative; especially with paper. My biggest project as a pre-teen was a bunny house made completely out of paper. I made the bunny family of four and from that I just kept going till I had a house made out of a large box and all their accessories completely out of paper. I went to college for graphic design, worked for a company designing kids Valentine's, gift bags, gift wrap and other paper items and I now work for a company involved with paper. It's an obsession.


I started quilling almost 6 years ago and would love to be able to do it full time. I sell my stuff on the web a at www.quillynilly.etsy.com and here in town at a shop called Handmade Creativity (Bartlett, Tn). I love looking at something and trying to solve it by creating it in paper. I'm whimsical and fun and that tends to follow through in my creations.
