Quilled Butterfly PDF Giveaway

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries. Scroll down to see who won!***

First off, I want to thank the participants in the discussion that's taking place in the comments section of Monday's digital quilling post. I had a feeling there would be lots of interesting ways of looking at the topic... well worth a read if you have a moment.

Today we'll talk quilling again - this time it's traditional style, but with a twist!

Cecelia Louie of Crafting Creatures is the designer of this pretty monarch. You might remember Cecelia from a previous post in which I featured her unique "less is more" style of quilling.

Quilled butterfly

There's such an attractive spaciousness in Cecelia's work. It's very easy to wind up with a cluttered look due to randomly adding quilled coils here and there, but her designs never seem to cross the line.

Quilled butterfly box

Cecelia has written a PDF butterfly tutorial, available in her Etsy shop, that features step-by-step instructions. A professional graphic designer, she's drawn diagrams showing exactly where to glue strips of specific lengths and in what order... I can't imagine a better way to gain quilling confidence.

What could make this information even better? Receiving a free copy of Cecelia's tutorial directly in your inbox, of course!

Three
lucky commenters from anywhere in the universe will be selected by Random.org. Be sure to include your email address within your comment if you don't have a blog or website where your address is readily available.

Giveaway will close at the end of Monday, September 12th and the winners will be announced on this post and the All Things Paper Facebook page the next day.

Please note: I have not received compensation from Cecelia in exchange for doing this feature post. I simply admire her work and am always happy to promote learning to quill.

Congratulations to #7 Kelly, #21 Mariel Sarah, and #63 Matxalen, whose numbers were selected by Random.org! Each winner will receive the butterfly tutorial via email from Cecelia who wants all of you to know how much she enjoyed your comments. More and more people are discovering quilling every day and it's wonderful to see the enthusiasm. If you weren't a winner, but are interested in improving your skills, perhaps take a moment to visit Cecelia's Etsy shop where she sells this PDF file and a couple of others.

Me, me, me! Oh, please! Pick me!! :D
I love the butterfly, it's absolutely beautiful. And I love that her directions appear to be so clear and straightforward. It's probably exactly the kind of thing I need to get me started quilling. Or at least get me started quilling next year. I'm setting my first New Year's resolution, and it's to learn to quill! (because I'm honest enough with myself to know that it won't be happening this year!)
