As I was reviewing some things on my blog, I realized I was missing some of the frame designs that I have made over the years.  So I am fixing that!  Today I am sharing a purple paper quilled lotus frame design that I created.  I made this frame a couple times.  The inspiration from it came from a wedding invitation that had a slightly similar design.  As a gift to the happy couple, I created this design on the matte of the frame, and used the middle of the frame to display their wedding invitation.  It made a lovely gift!

Because I really liked the paper quilled lotus design, I made it again (as a gift for another couple) and made a tutorial for it as well.

After I created the frame design I realized that the lotus part of it would make lovely earrings!  And the little leaves would make fun earrings as well!  So that’s just what I did.  Instructions for making those pieces into earrings are included in the tutorial.

Frames

When I make these designs, I like using inset (shadow box) frames.  I usually buy them at Ikea, as those are the ones that I can easily get here in Malaysia.  If you don’t have an Ikea near you, check your local craft shops, or find some like these on Amazon:

These smaller sizes are 5×7 inches,  and 8×8 inches in black.

These larger ones are 11×14 inches12×12 inches in black, and 12×12 inches in white.

 

I hope you enjoyed this paper quilled lotus frame design.  I don’t often take the time to make frames, so it was fun to turn one into a tutorial! Stick around, there is lots to see on the blog!
