Tutorial for quilled flowers

Here's some flowers I made the other day: 
I call them paper Asters.
To make them you will need:

double sided patterned paper 

scissors 

bonefolder (optional) 

quilling tool (optional) 

glue 

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. 
Cool huh?

Good luck and let me know how it goes:)
Pin It!
