First of all: find a nice paper to quilling :) I choose those metallic ones:

Step 2: Fruits Are Important Too

You have to find/search a fruit that can be used as a base to glue the paper.

I found those in the University I study, it's from a tree called Jacarand√°-mimoso (Jacaranda mimosifolia, D. Don)

Step 3: Seeing Better the Fruit

Inside the fruit you can see the winged seeds :)

You have to leave it on the sun to totally open and release the seeds, so now you can finish open the fruit with the tool that you wish.

Step 4: Finally, Making It Together

As you can see in many instructables here, now you have to roll the paper and make the formats you want, please, if you don't understand how I make it, search for "quilling paper" here and find a better explanation :)

I leave it in the sun to dry :D

Step 5: Just Another Flower

Step 6: If You Wanna See Two Examples of Butterflies...
