Step 1: Supplies Needed

Step 2: Quill the Center of Flower

  • Take a red colored quilling strip

  • Apply glue at end at remove from comb
  • Fold the quilled shape at middle, hold one end and make a tear drop shape

  • Stick the strip on top of flower petal and wrap it around the petal

Step 5: Join Petals Together

  • Apply glue on the wider end of petals and join all five of them together to form the flower shape

Step 6: Make Leaves

  • Take a green colored quilling strip and weave a tear drop shape from one end of comb
  • We do not require all the length of green strip, just weave on 5 pins
  • Trim extra length of strip and apply glue.
  • Remove from comb, press and shape like a leaf
  • Make two of them and attach to both sides of a petal of flower shape with glue

Step 7: Make Stem

  • Take a brown colored quilling strip and cut it in half
  • Fold one cu length twice to form four strips
  • Apply glue to 2/3rd of the strips from bottom and join

Step 8: Attach Stem

  • First hold the middle two strips together, apply glue and join at the center of petals just opposite to the one with leaves on both sides
  • Trim extra length of stem as you wish
  • The stem needs to be supported with the flower. So attach the outer strips to ends of petals and apply glue and allow it to dry

Our small quilled flower with leaves and stem is ready
