1.) 9 X 1 piece of cardstock (the size will depend on how big or small you want the flower. The flower that is shown on my card from Friday was cut 12 X 1)
2.) Adhesive (I'm using sticky strip, check out Confessions of A Ribbon Addict for adhesive)
3.) Something to score the paper ( I'm using Martha Stewart score board)
4.) Boarder punch is optional as well as any type of bling
When you have your paper cut you are going to take your scoring of choice and score every quarter of an inch (shown in the picture)
Put your adhesive of choice on the last two folded "petals".
I'm sooo sorry I just realized in the pictures how dirty my score board is and how poor my finger nails look.
Now for the tricky part. I prepare a circle and put glue on the circle and put it to the side for a moment. You are going to push down in the middle of the flower keeping everything in tact (I'm not coordinated and the flower will pop up again again so that's why I say have a circle with glue ready or if you are going right to the paper put glue/adhesive on the paper before you continue making the flower.
Adhere whatever it is you like to the bottom. I make the flowers for people and put them in packaging so I use the glue dots I get from Confessions Of A Ribbon Addict along with hot glue. For the tutorial I kept with the paper circle with glue.
Pretty it up and you are finished.
The snail came from cricut cartridge Birthday Bash and the grass came from Plantin Schoolbook. Paper came from a multi color pack from Recollections. Bling came from a RAK a few months ago. I used a white pen to highlight the envelope and sentiment. I used a boarder punch from EK Success to make the flowers. Sentiment came from Inkadinkado Gem Stone Alphabet. I also used Gelly Roll pens for the cheeks and antenna.
One of my New Year's resolutions was to try new things. It was my first time quilling and I enjoyed adding something different to my card. I'm going to continue trying my hand at that.
This was my first tutorial and I hope it makes sense. I would love some feedback on it.
Hope everyone is enjoying their week!!
