A quilled holder for my son

Here is some quilling with the all newly popular comb design. I came across this technique for the time in Anatasia's blog. She had made some really pretty leaves. And then came along Noor Azlina Lin's pretty flowers using the same technique. I had to give it a try too ( if you are a regular at my blog then you know that I cannot resist trying new techniques).
This ended up with a whole load of comb-quilled petals in different colours.I had just finished making some flowers by 8:00 pm yesterday. That is when the kiddo remembers that he has to take a decorated holder for his vote of thanks... and ofcourse it had to be taken the next morning. But then he had also gone ahead and promised his school supervisor that he would bring a quilled one made by his mommy.
This is all I could whip up with such short notice. But all was worth it seeing his little face light up with joy at the sight of it.

Here is the back view. It has corner brackets to hold an A4 paper or a certificate. There was no time to quill on the inside.

Finally this is the holder from the outside. It did look pretty nice on stage with all the lights while my son was reading his Vote Of Thanks held in this folder. Sweet of him to point it straight up for the audience to view Mom's work!! Kids...aren't they the sweetest?
