3mm Quilling paper: Light Olive Green, Mid Green, Blue Green, Peach, Pink. 5mm: White. Small quilling tool. P.V.A. Craft Adhesive. Card mount: SF03P Cream/Brown Oval.
To Make The Card: Main Leaves:
Make four of these varying as shown below. The leaves are made by the ‘alternate side looping’ method, with two or three different shades of green paper being looped at the same time. Each leaf has a different number of side loops, this diagram shows them approximately actual size and the same way up as on the card so you can see where each belongs.
Hold the two or three strips of paper together and as you form the first loop, gently pull the end(s) of the inner strip(s) of paper slightly to make the loops different heights.
Fold the two or three papers to make a loop, again the inner paper(s) should be gently pulled to make the loop(s) shorter.
Fold the papers to make a loop on the other side, again making the inner loop(s) shorter.
Continue making as many alternating side loops as needed for the leaf you are working then fold the paper at the base of the leaf.
If you are winding with three papers, snip off the end of the middle paper. Wind the remaining two colours round the leaf. Glue them at the base and cut off the excess paper.
Make a loose coil and glue the end. Continue rolling the paper onto the tool bringing it up as you roll until it is straight again.Loop Leaves Make two of these. Flower Centres: Make three of these. Flower Petals: Make 24 half petals from 1⁄2 lengths of yellow paper and 12 smaller half petals from 1⁄3 lengths of pink paper. Glue a white flower centre onto each flower to finish. Begin with the large leaves. glueing them into place and making the scrolls as you go. Pinch each end and flatten one side to shape as shown. Wind two or three turns of quilling paper onto the tool and make a right angle fold as shown. make a loop at one end and ‘alternate’ fold the leaf making as many side folds as needed. 7 Actual Size Pair up the petals and run a line of glue along one of the flat sides of each pair. Remove from the tool and glue the end of the paper. Add the pink flower with the upper three petals overlaid on the yellow flower. Lay the petals onto the diagram above and glue them together where they touch to make three flowers. add the lower folded leaf between the two left hand petals and the two scrolls tucked between the yellow and pink flowers. Place the bottom yellow flower with the upper three petals on the card. Roll it onto the tool bringing it back up until it is in line again. Using a 1⁄3 length of 5mm white paper. Glue the end and snip of the excess paper. the two scrolls which are lying flat on the card and the top folded leaf. Place the top yellow flower onto the card with the upper three petals overlaid on the leaves. Push the pairs together and hold until the glue sticks. Repeat these steps keeping the bottom of the rose tight against the tool until the rose is the correct size. Using a single piece of pale green paper. Assemble the pieces onto the card. Fold the paper over at a right angle as shown. .
