Quilled Flower Wreathcomments (0) January 18th, 2013 in gallery
Are you looking for a simple yet elegant project for spring? Look no further! Simple cardstock in any color can be transformed into the most dainty flowers with a couple of simple instructions. No fancy tools required and very inexpensive and versatile.
Take strips of colored cardstock and cut edge all the way down to make a fringed strip. ( see above photos) Start rolling the strip and gluing every couple of inches to help keep flower from unfurling. The result will be a tightly rolled coil that has a flat side and a fringed side. When finished gluing fan out the fringed side to create a flower effect. Make serveral of these in different shades of your color or in complimentary colors. I used different width strips to create different sized flowers as well, which is pleasing to the eye. Experiment and have fun with these flowers and use them in all types of decorating applications. I used mine on a plumbing flange as a wreath base! More detailed instructions can be found at the Chatty Cathy blog.
