What advice would you give someone starting this project? Tackle it one letter at a time. Start with largest open areas and fill with the largest flowers first. Then fill in smaller spaces with smaller flowers and leaves as you go. http://craftingcreatures.blogspot.ca/2010/01/quilled-jade.html Although I don't have a tutorial showing how I quilled the letters, I do show how to make the flowers here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/59669115/quilling-flowers-pdf-pattern-tutorial

Absolutely beautiful, great work!!! I am kinda clumsy with my hands. Are the flowers hard to make? I remember this when I was a kid but forgot how to make them. Love it!!! .

Hi Miranda2913, thanks so much! I guess I'm pretty good with my hands but even I use tweezers to grasp the small details and place the paper exactly where I want. My friend who admits she is kind of clumsy does struggle a bit more, but it doesn't stop her from enjoying what she makes. We both just focus on the fun of making!

Hi Candras Secret, the "jade" letters are outlined and printed on a sheet of card. I cut it out from it's background and filled the insides with flowers and swirls. I then put folded posts underneath to raise it .5" high, and glued on polka dot patterned scrapbook paper. I hope that makes sense? Cecelia
