Floral greeting card with spiral flowers

Greeting card with flowers

I tried to make a greeting card with three-dimensional flowers. The techniques is described in detail in "Paper Crafts Workshop: A Beginner's Guide to Techniques & Projects". In short:

  1. Draw a swirl on coloured paper.
  2. Cut the paper following the swirl design with decorative scissors (waves of different types). Start cutting from the outside to the centre.
  3. Roll the swirl from the outside towards the centre around a thin round stick or using a quilling tool.
  4. Remove the stick and let the rolled paper free. It opens a little into a flower.
  5. Pull the centre (a small circle) of the swirl and glue it underneath.
  6. Cut out leaves, place them on a soft pad and gently press in veins.
Spiral

UPDATE: Don't miss the video tutorial on how to make such roses.
