Welcome back friends !! I wanted to make a different greeting card for my husband's birthday. I have already done quilled greeting cards so wanted to try something new so that it will be a complete surprise.When i searched for ideas i came across this 3D quilled flower bouquet. The card came out very well and i felt very happy after doing it.
MATERIALS NEEDED :
- A4 sheet ( coloured paper can be used )
- Quilling tool
- Quilling paper
Step 1 : Cut 1/2 inch strips of paper.
Step 2 : Colour each strip with different colour.
Step 3 : Cut small slits in all the strips of paper except green colour.
Step 4 : Take the quilling paper of contrast colour and quill a tight coil to make the center of the flower.
Step 5 : Attach the end of the strip to the quilled coil and start rolling the strip around the coil.
Step 6 : Open up the petals to get a flower.
Step 7 : Repeat the same steps for all coloured strips. Now for the leaves take the green strip and quill it as a loose coil.
Step 8 : Arrange the flowers and leaves as a bouquet and decorate it of your choice. I folded regtangular piece of paper as a vase and added sattin ribbon to it.
You can give this as a greeting card or frame and hang in the wall . You can learn the basics of quilling from this video
Have a nice day !!!
Happy crafting !!!
