Quilled Fishing Elements

These are some fishing elements to use for a Father's Day or masculine card. Of course women love to fish, me included, so this could be used for a great card to any fisher person :)

Fish Lure
a 20" loose circle made up of three colors of paper glued end-to-end (4", 8", 8"). Pull center of circle to one side before pinching both ends to make a slim marquise. Make two 1" and one 1-1/2" silver T-scrolls for hooks.

two 12" half circles (white on top, red on bottom), 3" black rectangle shape glued to top

a 16" olive green loose circle shaped into a fat marquise. Hold the bottom of the marquise and pinch the top portion to a point. Make two and glue flat sides together. Glue 12" tan or brown flattened marquise to top. Fold and glue a 5" olive green strip into a 2-1/2" piece. While strip is still wet from glue, wrap around a 1" dowel to shape. Glue ends to side of basket for the handle and add tiny brad to front.

These are great, you have awesome ideas. I try to come up with my own quilled designs and it's so refreshing to see someone else do the same; of course now I'm mad I didn't think of these first. Hee hee, thanks for sharing; your blog is great.
