Quilled Lily Pond With a Frog

This was made in May 2014 for my son who was crazy about frogs at that time.

I was inspired by a blog named Craftliciouss, which I can no longer find. However, you can check out the original picture from that blog at http://craftziners.info/photo/paper-quilling-3d-lily-pond?commentId=3069748%3AComment%3A38257&xg_source=activity 

Another great frog pond idea is available at the site of one of my favourite quillers, Pritesh. Check this out
