Here's some flowers I made the other day:
I call them paper Asters.
To make them you will need:
double sided patterned paper
quilling tool (optional)
Cut a strip of paper 12 inch long and about 1- 1 1/2 inch wide.
Fold it in half lengthwise.
Cut a thin fringe along the paper, but leave a tiny part uncut.
Put the strip in the quilling tool
and start rolling up. Put some dots of glue along the edge.
This is what you will have now:
Start from the outside and bend down the fringe.
And it's all done!
If you want full flowers like these, use a 12 inch paper strip.
For these, I used two 6" strips in two different widths.
You can also make them flatter by using a shorter strip and then add a brad or a paper coil in the middle.
I got the inspiration from this picture I found browsing around on Ebay.
Good luck and let me know how it goes:)
