Griffin (quilled)
Quilled Griffin Box

I find it difficult to make things for my husband, but recently I went ahead and decided to make him a box. We both love blue, so I painted the box cobalt blue, and spent a lot of time working on the Griffin I quilled* on the front.

PLEASE click on the picture of the Griffin to make it larger so you can see the full design.
This is the top of the box I made for him, and another shot of the box from the side to just get a better idea of what it looks like.

I guessed on the time I put down. I figure it took me over 5 hours, under 10. A lot of the time was working on figuring out how to do the design, and then quilling itself is a slow process.

* Quilling, also known as paper filigree, is an art where you take strips of paper, roll them into shapes, and create a design.
