Miniature flower pots
We love spending time in nature, especially these days, when Israel is blossoming: you can see cyclamens, dandelions, anemones, tulips, daisies, and many other flowers. I just couldn't help quilling flowers, and here they are, my tiny flower pots.
The dandelion came first. It was made using the fringed flower technique.
A rose followed it (how to fold a rose)...
And a violet...
And then an aster (it's a double fringed flower).
Next day I made also a tulip.
How to make:
Make the dandelion like a simple fringed flower, except that you have to roll it right onto a toothpick and leave it that way. Roll 5-6 strips onto the other end of the toothpick and shape it into a pot. Coat inside the pot with glue to retain its shape. Then paint the toothpick stem green, cut out and attach leaves, draw veins if needed. The same method can be used for any other flower. You may wrap a green strip around the toothpick instead of painting it green.
I used some basic quilling shapes for the leaves in most cases, as well as for the petals of the tulip and violet. The other flower heads were made with various quilling techniques as mentioned above. The flowers are between 4.5 and 6.5 cm (1 3/8 and 2 5/8 inches) high, you can see a one-cent coin in the picture for comparison.
