This was my first quilling project, The Lilypad Frog Pond.. The base is made of  2 old CDs ( I believe in reusing and recycling) which have been glued together. I then cut out a light blue coloured paper in the shape of the pond slightly larger than the original size of the CDs. This project help me understand all the basic shapes of quilling especially the lose coil.. I made hundreds of them I think.

The edges are made of brown quilling strips of two shapes pinched into squares and the water has three shades of blue.

Three frogs of varying sizes and the beautiful butterfly and dragonfly.

The pop-up lily of Martha Stewart Punch and the small flowers floating on the water are the Flower cluster from Punch Bunch.
