How to quill a beautiful 2D blossom card

Create a relatively quick and truly beautiful quilled card that can be used for any occasion.

  • Papercraft and Scrapbooking
  • 1-2 hours
  • Intermediate

Tools and Materials Required

  • 3mm quilling strips (pink and green)
  • 10mm Quilling strips (white)
  • A5 card blank
  • Slotted Quilling Tool
  • PVA glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Acrylic Paint (brown, black or grey for the branch)
  • Template

Method

On a blank card draw a basic branch shape (feel free to copy mine). I outlined mine with a black pigment pen, but that it is optional and not necessary. Use a small amount of brown acrylic paint and paint the branch. Once done put it aside to dry.

1

Cut 30 pink strips in half (giving you 60 separate strips. Begin to roll the pink strips into 60 small tight coils. Divide them into groups of five, and glue the five coils into a ‘round’ to form the flower shapes.

2

When all of the flowers have dried you should have a total of 12 flowers. Place them onto the branch where you would like them to be. Once you are happy with the placement you can glue them permanently onto the branch.

3

While the flowers are drying take a strip of 10mm white quilling paper and with a pair of scissors (or you can use a Tattered Lace Die if you prefer) cut 7mm small cuts into the strip forming a ‘fringe’. Once the fringe is formed, use the slotted tool and make 12 small coils from the fringe. These can be glued on the bottom and placed into the central parts of the flowers as the stamen.

4

Using either tweezers or your fingers gently separate the fringe strips to open them up. The card can be left otherwise blank or you can add a border or sentiment if you wish.
