How to make double fringed flowers

Another tutorial on quilled fringed flowers. This type is rather rear and I've never seen a detailed description of it. I already explained how to make simple fringed flowers earlier.

You will need double-sided colored paper, scissors, glue, a ready-made or a do-it-yourself slotted tool, or just a wooden toothpick.

1. Cut a paper strip about 2-3 cm (1 inch) wide and 10 cm (4 inch) long. Fold it lengthwise.

2. Create a fringe by making small cuts at 45 degrees along the closed edge.

3. Attach to its end a regular — 3 mm (1/8 inch) wide and 25-30 cm (10 inch) long — quilling strip. This will make the center of the flower.

4. Roll tightly using a toothpick or quilling tool, starting from the tip of the narrow strip.

You don't have to shape the petals, they will fluff up by themselves.

5. After the fringe is rolled up, glue its tip and hold for a couple of minutes to let the glue dry a little.

Now you can use your flower for a greeting card or any other purpose.

In order to make a flower of the type shown below use only a wide strip. In this case it should be longer, about 20-30 cm (8-12 inch). Don't glue a narrow strip for the center, start rolling the fringe right away.

Tips

To create a nice and smooth coiling when making a flower with center, try gluing the joint between the fringe and inner strip down to the coil. Do so right after you've finished rolling the center and before starting to roll the fringe. This will keep your coiling in place. Also, try rolling very tightly and apply a small amount (just a tiny dot) of adhesive after every wind.

Try different papers, too thick or heavy paper may be unsuitable for this technique. You may also want to use a thicker tool than the usual quilling tool, for example a wooden toothpick or a bamboo skewer.

Good luck!

Inna,
I love your site and all the beautiful quilling. I am a quiller also in the US. I wish I had found your site before our trip to Israel this summer so I could have brought you some great quilling supplies and met you! If I get the chance to return, make a list and I will!!! I have left several comments on different pages, there are not of enough of Jewish designs out there, keep it up!
Shalom,
Sonya

Hope to see you visiting my blog again :)

Barbara said...

Hello Inna, Your work has inspire me to start quilling, I have done a lot in the past but have unfortunately had to down tools for a another project. Could u recommend a shop I could purchase from papers etc. are they hard to come by here.

Inna D. said...

Hi Barbara,
You blogger profile isn't visible, so I can't figure out where you live. Here in Israel it's virtually impossible to purchase quilling supplies, that's why I hand-cut my paper and use a homemade quilling tool.
Also, you can always buy online. Just google for "quilling supplies"

Большое спасибо за хорошее объяснение. Но двойной лепесток у меня почему-то не выглядет двойным - нет зазора (сдвига ) между полосками в лепестке. За счет чего он получается? Спасибо.

Inna (Crafts, Kids, Quilling) said...

Попробуйте использовать более толстую бумагу, сдвиг получается за счет того, что внешняя полоска наматывается на бОльший диаметр, чем внутренняя, разница получается из-за толщины бумаги, так с каждым витком сдвиг становится все больше и больше.

Anonymous said...

Очень красивый цветок. А у меня не получается сдвиг между краями лепестков, т. е. лепесток не "резной". Как этого достичь?

Спасибо.

Inna (Crafts, Kids, Quilling) said...

Читайте комментарий прямо над вашим, я там уже объяснила.
