Paper, glue and a little patience.....that's what ForeverFiligree is all about. Elegant quilled paper snowflakes in all shapes and sizes, and even some with real sand dollars in the middle.

I've been in my new home in Mobile, Alabama for almost 4 years now (where has the time gone??) and still loving it. It feels a little strange making snowflakes in 95 degree weather....thank goodness they won't melt. I'm still a Maine girl at heart, just bringing snowflakes to the south. EXCITING NEWS: The book I was commissioned to do on quilled snowflakes, stars and sunbursts is published. Check it out on Amazon!!!

My snowflakes make perfect unique gifts for teachers, secret santa, day care staff, office parties, stocking stuffers...don't forget Winter Weddings...the list goes on and on....Snowflakes aren't just for Christmas!

Welcome to my shop and thank you for stopping by.

MY MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION: Do I put something on these to preserve them. I do not because I want to keep them in their natural state. I recently found a snowflake that I made 20+ years ago and hadn't stored it very nicely.....yet, it still looked identical to the way it looked when I first quilled it. I package them in containers that can be used to store them when not in use and keep them looking beautiful for many years of enjoyment.

I've tried to create a unique gift giving item here that requires nothing from you except the recipient's name and yours on the matching gift tag. My snowflakes are handmade entirely by me, taking several hours to complete. They come beautifully packaged in either a gift box with matching ribbon and gift tag or round 2 piece tin container lined with cardstock and topped with a matching gift label on the lid.

In our busy, time-crunched world....what could be better than a unique, one-of-a-kind, inexpensive gift ready for giving? All you need to do is fill out the gifttag....let me do the rest!

Hope you enjoy,

Shannon

About

Snowflakes aren't just for Christmas

After I sold my house and no longer had the homeowner upkeep chores hanging over my head when I came home from my day job, I found myself very bored and just doing a lot of reading.

I had a few friends who had started Etsy shops and were having a blast making and selling their items all over the world. I've always been a crafty/artsy person and decided to come up with something unique that not many people were selling at the time.....Quilling. It was a very popular craft back in the 70's/80's, but not many shops were doing it on Etsy. I sat down and created several different snowflake designs and to help set my shop apart from the few other shops selling quilling, I came up with unique packaging that turned my creations into already gift-wrapped presentations for my buyers.

It's been so exciting watching my shop grow each year and sending my snowflakes all over the world....Australia, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Sweden, Belgium to name a few, and my favorite was Slovania (because I had no idea where that was at). I've also enjoyed the challenges my customers have presented me with, such as creating a monogrammed snowflake or putting a company logo (Jockey International) in the middle of a snowflake. My designs have been used as props in Jockey International and Sundance's holiday catalogs. I've also been contracted to author the quilling section of a book which was published in September 2013. Check it out on Amazon: Snowflakes, Sunbursts and Stars (Fold, Cut, and Curl).

    I love all things creative and am in my element when I'm using my hands and imagination just creating. I also love nature and all animals and am blessed to have three dogs and a green-cheeked conure who hang out with me while I make my snowflakes.

Welcome to my shop and thank you for stopping by. New items are continuously being added, so please check back often.

I have always had a passion for creating things since I was young from crocheting/knitting, cross-stitching, quilting, cake decorating, just to name a few, and of course--Quilling.

I've tried to create a unique gift giving item here that requires nothing from you except the recipient's name and yours on the matching gift tag. My snowflakes are handmade entirely by me, taking several hours to complete.
