Item details

This is a made to order custom listing for a paper quilling photo mat and frame. The paper quilling photo mats shown in the listing pictures are examples of what can be created.


The traditional gift for a 1st anniversary is paper, which means this paper quilled photo mat is a perfect gift to celebrate your first wedding anniversary, or a perfect gift idea for a recently married couple in your life. { a unique way to preserve special wedding details and to have a beautiful keepsake from your wedding to proudly display in your home }


Paper quilling is a craft that involves curling, rolling and shaping different sized strips of paper to create different designs. I use standard 1/8” quilling strips of paper for my designs and an acid free glue to adhere the strips to the photo mat.


Your custom design can be based on wedding colors, bridal bouquet flowers or overall wedding style. This listing is for a 10"x12" photo mat size that will accommodate a 5"x7" bevel cut opening in the mat to display a wedding invitation or photo of the bride and groom. The location and orientation of the cutout area can be customized, horizontal or vertical, any corner location in the mat. The photo mat is archival quality, fade resistant and acid free.


Please note that this is a custom order item and lead time from the time of purchase to order completion is 1 to 2 weeks (plus 3-5 days for shipping time).


Please convo me directly for specifics on your requested order. Photographs are helpful to understand color scheme and theme for the custom paper quilling photo mat order.

Examples of photo mats for this size and cut opening are identified in the first two listing photos (although your order will be custom made). This listing includes one (1) paper quilled 10"x12" photo mat with a beveled cut opening for 5"x7" wedding invitation or bride and groom photo and (1) Pottery Barn gallery frame.


• Listing photo 1 features a 10”x12" light brown (toasty) mat size with an opening for a 5"x7" invitation/photo in the upper left corner. The mat features a yellow sunflower, maroon red gerbera daisy with black center, white daisy and orange mum flower paper quilling designs.

• Listing photo 2 features a 10”x12" light yellow (raffia) photo mat with an opening for a 5"x7" invitation/photo in the upper right corner. The mat features blue hydrangea, loose peach rose, white daisy and orange lily flower paper quilling designs.

• Listing photos 3, 4 and 5 are examples of individual types of paper quilling flower designs that can be recreated for your custom photo mat order.

I like to use Pottery Barn gallery frame for these orders because the frame is museum-quality, crafted of solid hardwood and assembled with fine biscuit corners. It is designed for vertical or horizontal display, with a leg to set it on a tabletop or with mounting brackets for hanging on a wall. There is a spacer between the quilled photo mat and the glass of the frame which reduces glare and protects the quilling design.


For the 10"x12" photo mat size, there are four paper quilling flowers you can choose. The flowers are often paper quilling representations of the flowers that were carried by the bride or used in the wedding decor.

{about me and the shop}

I found quilling as my new hobby and it became my way to relax and unwind at the end of the day, be creative with no limitations and make something unique and beautiful. Part of the reason why I am drawn to quilling is the symmetry, clean lines and the balance in each design.

The name of my etsy shop came out of the stress relief that I feel when I’m quilling the paper strips into shapes. Quilling is relaxing to me and I find myself slowing down and taking deeper breaths. Pair that with the actual art craft itself (quilling) and it’s a fun combination of art and stress relief. .. So TranQuillity Designs was born.

The name of the shop came out of the feeling of stress relief that I get when I’m quilling the paper strips into shapes.

Many items listed in my Etsy shop are completed designs but I would love to create personalized versions of any piece you see. Each item is handmade to be unique but previous orders can be replicated (type of flowers, colors, etc.).

The two primary sizes of paper quilling projects I make are 3"x4" and 4"x6", single sided cards with rounded corners. Often the photo mat designs are 8"x10" or larger. I am always open to custom orders and alternate sizes to meet your specific needs.
