Folded rose in a flowerpot, quilled miniature

Rose in flower pot. Quilling

I wanted to show in detail the quilled rose from "Miniature flower pots" many of you liked so much. Just to remind you, its height is about 6 cm (2 3/8 inch).

Bottom view, you can see how the pot is made.

Finally, the view inside the pot. Although you can clearly see tiny pieces of paper on this macro, life-size they look pretty much like light soil :)

In addition, I must share with you the link to an extraordinary tutorial (includes video) how to make a quilling rose by Claire Sunok Choi. Enjoy!

UPDATE: I published also my own tutorial for roses. I make them in a bit different way — How to fold a rose.

This is absolutely amazing! just wondering, what thickness of paper did you use for each of the components of the flower?

Thanks :) It's a plain copy paper, 80 gsm. 1/8"-wide (3mm) strips for the stem, pot and leaves; approx. 3/8"-wide (1cm) for the flower.
