If you are absolutely new to quilling you can learn the basics through many helpful youtube videos(though i have tried my best in explaining from the basics in this instructable).Here is one such video.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5ICwEBsvZM
Step 1: Materials That You'll Need
2) Quilling paper
3) Quilling tool
Step 2: Making Water Ripples
The roll need not be tight (see image 4).Apply some glue at the end of the roll.Make many such rolls.(see image 5).
Step 3: Making the Flower
Now start rolling and after you are done with rolling the paper , let it a bit loose.Put a dab of glue at the end of the paper and stick it firmly(see image 3).press the paper gently so that you'll get a tear-drop shape(see image 4).This will be a petal of the flower.Make 7-8 such petals(see image 5).
Cut a small circle out of paper and start pasting the petals in order to make a flower(see image 6).Now take another paper(of orange colour) and tightly coil it and at the end put some glue and ensure it is tight.Now paste it in the centre of the flower(see image 7).This makes the small flower.Now make 8 more petals and add another layer to the small flower(see image 8).
Step 4: Making Leaf
To make the outer part of the leaf ,add glue to the outer parts of the leaflets and take a paper and paste it to circumscribe the leaflets(see image 5).Make 2-3 such leaves.
Step 5: Making the Boundary
Step 6: Final Assembly!!
You can add more details like the frog(see image) and grass that i have added.
FOR MAKING THE FROG :sorry guys! since its already done I cant upload the pics but i ll try giving u an overview of what i have done. You ll have to make 2 teardrop shapes for the legs,2 tight coils for the eyes (they have a diameter of about 0.7 cm).
For the lower part of the body, make a tight coil (of diameter around 1.7 cm). since this is a bigger coil,u cant make it with a single strip. so at the end of 1st strip paste the 2nd one and likewise u ll end up pasting around 9 -10 strips(roughly).once this is done apply glue at the end of the coil n secure it.now holding the coil,try pushing the inner part of the coil outwards so that it ll look like a flowerpot (kind of,see the frog pic so that u ll understand).
For the upper part of the body,make a tight coil like what u have already done for the lower part but this should have a diameter of 1.4cm (roughly ) . again make a flowerpot like shape but a smaller one. invert this flowerpot and paste it on the lower part.
For the feet,make 2 loose coils n squeeze them in such a way that u ll get that shape shown in the pic.
For the eyeballs, u can use a black marker n draw on it . Here in India, we put 'Bindis' i made use of those.
For the tongue , take a red color strip n curl it
Now assemble all the parts of the frog as seen in the pic. :) Hope u ll enjoy making the frog :)
Happy crafting :)
