Picture of Quilled miniature flower pot with wooden box - lampshade by night
First, some background :

My fiance had been complaining from a long time now...that how I had stopped making things for her. So for her birthday this year I decided to make her something very romantic and mostly hand-crafted (as far as possible). I was introduced to quilling through a friend who used to make beautiful quilled cards.

After a little help from Google, I zeroed in on a miniature quilled plant. Since I am an aeromodeller, I love balsa wood (the wood used to make rc planes). The two fields collided and this idea was born. A miniature quilled plant in a wooden box which would transform into a night lamp of course at night  :)

PS : I have entered this instructable in "Holiday Gifts Contest" . If you like my work ...please please help me win it for her. That would be awesome.

Edit: I have added a dwg file for the wooden stand. You can get them laser cut. :)

Step 1: Build broken into 2 parts

That is so adorable! Even though you labeled it mini, I didn't imagine it that small! It's prefect for a little gift for someone :)

Hi Penolopy thank you for your appreciation. The size of the bounding box is 50*50*70 (L*W*H) mm. They are very portable.
Oh how sweet! These would make perfect gifts. :)
