Intro: DIY Quilled Orange Flower
This beautiful flower may look overwhelming, but it is actually very simple to make! In a few short steps, you will have made a gorgeous flower.
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
2 3/4 inch long orange strips. You can choose whatever color you like, but keep in mind that for each flower you want to make, you have to multiply that number by five, in order to calculate the number of strips you need to cut.
*If you want to make a stem, you will also be needing 2 green strips.
Step 2: Making the Petals
Using your quilling tools, coil the strips into loose circles, and then glue them. Pinch them at the ends. you have jsut made a petal! Repeat this step until you have used up all of your strips.
Step 3: Forming the Flowers
Once you have finished making the petals, it is time to start assembling the flowers. Take 5 petals, and arrange them like shown in the picture. Glue the side of the petals near the bottom, and in the middle. Repeat this step until you have used up all of your petals.
Step 4: OPTIONAL: the Stem
For the stem, fold one strip in half, and glue it, so it appears that there is only one strip. Cut the other strip into short, about 2 inches, green strips, and then glue them to the top of the longer piece.
Step 5: The Final Product
Using a piece of construction paper, glue down the stem and the flowers. Voila! you have finished your design! Display it on the wall or give it as a gift!
