Craft Flower making


In my works, I used pastel paper.
I buy it in large sheets of 50 * 60, then for the convenience of storage, I cut into 4 parts (25 * 30).
Strips I cut on the short side, so they have a non-standard length – 25 cm.

For this, MK I used the scraps of dense office paper (the density seems to be 120 g / m). Therefore, the length of the strips is different. But this does not matter much, just the longer the workpiece gets, the fuzzy the flower will come out.

Tools and materials:
1 – Wooden ruler. (Many people advise using metal for cutting strips, as often cutting off a thin chip when cutting from a ruler.) But I’m uncomfortable with iron, so I have to change the rules regularly)
2 – Scissors (I prefer medium size)
3 – Office knife
4 – Pencil
5 – Copper wire
6 – Self-made tool for twisting
7 – Thin brush for glue
8 – Glue PVA (In the store they sell different PVA for all their advantages and disadvantages, but for quilling, I usually use this one)
9 – Silicone sealant. ( the Hot glue gun is certainly more convenient, but I do not have …)

We cut the strips.
For the flower itself – 3 pieces of different colors (or not three, or not different – as you wish)
For perianth – 4 pieces of green color 0.5 cm wide

Strips for a flower cut in this way: (from the center of the future flower to the periphery)
1,5cm – 2cm; 2cm – 2,5cm; 2,5cm – 3cm.
(see photo)

We glue all strips except the green ones into one long one.
The glue is overlapped. (See next photo)

When gluing the paste with glue only 5 mm from the width of the strip. This is the place that will remain uncut when we cut the fringe.

We cut the fringe. Leave uncut 5 mm.

We twist the resulting fringe into a tight roll.
It turns out as in the photo. We fix the tip with glue.
In the center of the flower was a deepening.

Now squeeze the fringe so that the ends of the fringe lie in one plane.

We glue the pit with PVA glue (densely) so that the flower keeps the shape.
While the glue dries we will make the perianth.

From 4 green strips, we twist a tight roll (its diameter must be slightly larger or equal to the diameter of the base of the flower).
We twist on the toothpick so that in the center there is a hole.

Wrap the wire with the letter Y

We put the wire stalk into the green roll.

We extrude the fossa, as in the flower itself.
Inside, you can glue PVA.
And you can not bother and immediately move on to the next stage.

Fill both pits with silicone.

We glue the halves, remove excess glue.
And leave until completely dry.

When everything is finally dry it will only be a little to fluff the flower, twisting the fringe.

Well, that’s our flower ready.
I tried to show everything in as much detail as possible.
I think all this has been described more than once, but I hope that it is my material that will be useful to someone.
Well, if someone will (or already have) work with such colors, I will be glad if you give the link in the comments.
