I have said before that my two favorites are miniature and giant quilling! I would put this one below in the big category! I used one-inch crimped red and green strips of construction paper glued end to end. The stems are spongy insulation material that I cut into pieces and painted black. The leaves are 6" long and the cherries are 3.5" in diameter.
I wanted to share this technique to show that there is no limit to what you can do with quilled paper. Here are a few more examples:
Lori Mondell ~ has an amazing creative mind when embellishing her projects (check out other items in Lori's store)
Suzana Ilic ~ brings quilling to a next level with her brilliant dimensional art
Ann Martin ~ this is an excellent example of how to be inspired by non-paper material and incorporate into quilling (also, check out Ann's new book!)
Update: I found this poor photo showing how the large items are suppose to grab attention. This was the year I forgot one of my bags - containing makeup and my camera. I bought one of those disposable cameras and the photos turned out itty-shay!!!
