Flower Making (Quilling) - Part I



Sorry guys for the delay .... held up with lots of work and unable to spend time for this blog :(

Okay moving on to flower making......

I am bit lazy today, to key-in ..... so I have just posted the pictures for each process.... and described in few words... If you have any questions/doubt, please feel free to ask me ...


Materials Needed :


Glue, Toothpicks, small sharp scissors, strips of colour papers (I used 15 cm length and 1cm width)


Method:

Step 1:
Use 2 colour papers. Cut one strip into 2 halves. Again cut one half into two lengthwise.


Step 2:
Use the other colour strip. Fold into 4, and start cutting them carefully so that it looks like a fringe.


Step 3:
Glue the fringed paper and the half-cut paper.


Step 4:
With the help of the toothpick, slowly roll them. Toothpick should neither be tight nor loose, it should come out of it easily.


Step 5:
Roll completely and glue it at the end.


Step 6:
Remove the toothpick, and carefully press the cut strip, so that it becomes a beautiful flower.



These are very simple flowers..... so flow your creativity, make your flowers, take a picture, publish it in your blog, and email it to me at illatharasi @ gmail dot com, by next wednesday (July 23rd).

We will display all our flowers here :)

Mine is displayed below:



Next week, we will see a different design....... Keep checking!
