A Quilling we will go

Greetings everyone. It has been so long since I posted. We have been so busy lately, going places visiting people, and having company here. I haven't had a chance to stamp or create anything for a long time.
While I was away visiting, one of my cousins gave me a book on quilling. She had thought it said "Quilting" and bought it by mistake. Well, she knew I could use it, so she very nicely passed it my way, and of course these two projects will be hers as a thank you.
I had done some quilling years ago, so I still have my tools, and I must say the Martha Stewart Rose punch and the branch punch sure work well with these pieces. The TONS of Fiber I bought and have never used will come in handy as I will be making lots of gift tags. Woohoo!!
The tag below is made using some scraps I had leftover from some DP I bought at the dollar store. I did the fringing by hand but would really like to purchase a fringer one day. Let's see how long my interest in this last though before I invest that much money. These roses have been hanging out in a little tin for years also. I am finally putting them to use. I went to a stamp convention where I bought the quilling tools and a set of carving tools. I carved a stamp of a flower to use for the quilling. How thrify was that? I love the pearls which come in strips with adhesive already on them. Makes them much easier to attach. They were a gift so now the task is to find out where I can get more.
