Quilled Loop Flowers!

The most intricate flowers I have ever made ! 🙂 🙂 🙂

They look complicated but are easy to make!

They are a little time consuming but like I always say the end result is worth it all!

This piece took me two days (about 8 hours) and is currently my favorite creation !
The petals are easy to make. You require different colored 3mm quilling strips in different lengths.

For the maroon and orange petals. Start with a yellow loop, about 5cms. Fold and make a loop. For the side orange loops. Take about 10cm of the strip and fold at 3 cms and then start again and fold at 1.5cms. I learnt using this online image and have uploaded the same  🙂
I don’t exactly follow the dimensions and I make sure both set of orange petals match. Then stick all of them together and use the maroon paper to circle the petal, taking its shape.


Follow the above steps and make the remaining 5 petals. One can use whatever color combinations they want ! 🙂

I made another loop flower with blue and yellow combinations .The tiny loop flower is made using the comb and the technique has been discussed in the previous post.
Decorate around with greens to make the picture complete ! 🙂

I have used tiny sparkly flowers to make it  look more pretty and used glitter paper strips for the border !

This one will surely be framed ! 🙂

Happy Quilling !!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
