Introduction: Brazilian Fruits Mobile With Quilling Paper ;)
Hi everyone!! :)
Hope you're fine and ready to release your immagination!
Step 1: Paper Is Important ;)
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 Jacarandá-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
I just made it as the previous and pick a piece of fabric to tie and glue it in the other side of the fruit.
Step 6: If You Wanna See Two Examples of Butterflies...
... I did it in other half of a fruit and again, going to the frame for the mobile
Step 7: Making the Frame
I used one hashi (japanese cutlery), tie, clip paper, super bonder and immagination *lol*
I also used a piece of a pen to finish the mobile!
