A photo frame bought in a store is a trite gift, but the one made by yourself may turn into a piece of art. A handmade photo frame with a memorable photo is a valuable gift to a close person. So, I advise you to make a photo frame with volume flowers in the paper quilling technique.

Now decorate the craft. On the left beneath there'll be multilayer flowers. For them take the paper fringe of different length twisted firmly on a toothpick. They'll be the midsts of the flowers. For the petals make monochrome and bicolor rolls of different sizes flattened like ovals. You'll have six diverse petals, then make six petals of each kind. Eventually you'll have 3 middles and 36 petals.

In the opposite corner you may place the flowers of the other shape but matching the color of the previous ones. Use the loose rolls in the shape of a triangle for the petals. The middle of a flower is a tight roll of yellow color. For decoration of the composition you may make «the horns» from green paper. Here use the rest leaves.
