How to make this adorable Paper flower card

First you’ll want to Start by making your card. We made ours tall and narrow by folding a square piece of card. Once you have your card, cut out a white paper rectangle to glue onto the front and create the frame effect.

Next take your quilling strips/ long thin pieces of coloured paper and begin rolling them tightly. We did ours just by hand but some people find it handy to use a cocktail stick. Once you have reached the end glue the loose end down onto the paper roll.

Glue down a rolled peice of paper for the centre of the flower and then cut out and glue down a thin strip of paper for the stem.

Build up the rolled paper petals around the outside of the flower. 5-6 normally works perfectly.
